A new child health system – the Children and Young Persons Integrated System (CYPrIS) – has gone live in Aneurin Bevan University Health Board.

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.

Its use also supports the overall management of child health by providing data and statutory reporting requirements to NHS Wales and Public Health Wales.

The launch of this new system means that, for the first time, there is a single, national repository for all child health data,’ said Gill Davison, NHS Wales Informatics Service’s Community Application Manager.

‘With this improved access to information, healthcare professionals could start to see an increase in the uptake of immunisation and screening services where gaps in health records are identified.’

‘I’d like to thank Aneurin Bevan Child Health Office for all the support they have provided to our teams during this phase of development,’ she added.

CYPrIS will continue to roll out across health boards during 2018 and 2019. The application will be developed further to include a number of key integrations, such as the GP interface and the Welsh Care Community Information System.
