Swansea Bay University Health Board is the latest health board to benefit from the new child health system, the Children and Young Persons Integrated System (known as CYPrIS).
The CYPrIS application, developed by NHS Wales Informatics Service, ensures that every child in Wales has an active care record. Clinicians will now have access to more information about a child's health and will be able to make more informed decisions about care options.
The CYPrIS application is the fourth of its kind to be developed by NHS Wales Informatics Service and provides comprehensive functionality for a number of national health programmes, such as the National Childhood Immunisation and Healthy Child Wales programmes. In addition to the core application, a read-only web version is available which allows clinicians to view the whole child health record.
Clinicians in Aneurin Bevan and Cardiff and Vale health boards are already using CYPrIS and have given positive feedback about it.
CYPrIS will continue to roll out across health boards throughout 2019. The application will be developed further to include a number of key integrations such as the GP interface and the Welsh Community Care Information System (WCCIS).
