MyBrainBook and NHS 111 integration: Supporting personalised care pathways in dementia
MyBrainBook is a digital platform that allows patients with cognitive impairment and dementia to capture information about themselves and share it with friends, family and health and care professionals. The personalised care and support plans include an ‘urgent care plan’ which, building on integration with London NHS111 services, gives the emergency and out-of-hours services real-time access to information to help ensure the appropriate pathway is chosen, avoiding A&E admissions where possible. For this to be fully realised there is a need to ensure that staff are trained and there is awareness amongst care
providers and the public of alternative pathways.
