Nine products and services set to begin working with NHS login

NHSX is working with the market at a national level to create a platform of digital tools like NHS Login that can be built on by digital health innovators.

NHS login – the service providing patients with a secure, simple way to identify themselves and match them to their records – will be used by nine more services.

This represents a real leap forward in the vision to enable patients to access a range of digital healthcare services using a single, secure login.

This will take the total number of products and services using NHS login to 14. NHS login is already live in:

  • Sitekit’s ‘eRedbook’ which enables parents to manage their child’s health and development digitally
  • Online GP consultation platform eConsult
  • Leeds Helm – a person, held record being developed in Leeds which enables people to contribute to their health and care record
  • The NHS App

It will also be going live soon in Tiny Medical Apps’ ‘Digital Health Passport’ – an app that helps teenagers manage long-term conditions like asthma.

It is a prime example of the approach laid out by the NHS Long Term Plan and Secretary of State’s vision, using Application Programming Interfaces (APIs – the means through which different pieces of software can interact and integrate) to enable innovators to plug in and use the service to benefit patients and healthcare professionals.

The next nine products and services set to begin working with NHS login are:

  • Evergreen Life – A GP online services app connected with three major GP systems in England
  • myGP – Also a GP online services app provided by iPlato Healthcare. The app provides appointment booking, patient triage, two-way messaging, health tracking, prescription ordering, and video consultation to 59 CCGs nationwide
  • Subtrakt Health – A tech company, working with the NHS to transform primary care services developing digital services for patients and clinicians, including Patient Pack – an online GP services and video consultations platform
  • Lincus Digital Health – A platform developed by Rescon Technologies providing online consultation, health record access and management tools for patients and clinicians
  • Mjog Messenger – A health messaging app for patients used by thousands of GPs to deliver health information, health advice and access to specialist online health services
  • ‘Ask NHS’ powered by Sensely – An app used by over 220,000 patients which points users to relevant NHS services and provides healthcare advice
  • AccuRx – A communication platform used by over 2000 GP practices to send messages to their patients
  • Patient Access – An app which connects patients to their GP surgery and healthcare service
  • NHS eReferrals Service (e-RS) – The system rolled out by the NHS combining electronic booking with a choice of place, date and time for first hospital or clinic appointments

NHS login allows organizations to be sure their users are who they say they are, providing a secure authentication program that meets high standards of safety. It enables users to choose a level of user verification appropriate to their service. It is also better for patients who can use one login to access a range of services securely.
