We are now working with Mid-Yorkshire Hospitals Trust to provide automated real-time SPINE lookups for New Registrations and change to demographic details.

Building on the work at Mid-Yorks we are excited to say that we can now offer a range of ways that your Trust can benefit very quickly from real-time SPINE Tracing and Verification.

1 – SPINE AutoTrace

This is the entry level offering which you can implement into your existing Ensemble TIE almost overnight.

SPINE AutoTrace is an Ensemble Production which can be deployed to your existing TIE. It can consume HL7 demographic messages and query the SPINE to trace or verify NHS Numbers real-time as required. AutoTrace can then (optionally) send Demographic updates back into your PAS to update the NHS Number and status on your main MPI.

Instead of waiting days or even weeks for NHS Numbers to be traced manually or in batch, SPINE AutoTrace can provide verified NHS Numbers in seconds.

2 – SPINE AutoTrace PLUS

SPINE AutoTrace PLUS adds a User Interface to the automated workflows of AutoTrace.

Now as well as letting the AutoTrace production do all the hard work of running your NHS Number traces and verifications automatically, there is a User Interface to perform adhoc traces and number verifications. In addition the New Registration Monitor provides a data quality workflow enabling you to easily manage New Patient Registrations. As well as showing the trace outcome, this function lets you see the SPINE Demographics which may then be used to update the PAS.

3 – SPINE QuikTrace

This is the full SPINE Mini-Service enabled version of QuikTrace as deployed at Mid-Yorks. In addition to SPINE AutoTrace PLUS, this provides local patient index duplicate detection using the advanced algorithmic capabilities of QuikTrace.
