The Elemental Connector


Making reporting back on the Social Prescribing DES PCN Funding easier

The Elemental Connector – makes reporting back on the Social Prescribing DES PCN Funding easier

Building on an already successful partnership and integration with EMIS,  Elemental is delighted to announce that our social prescribing platform is now fully integrated with EMIS to enable the two-way flow of data between a GP Practice and a Link worker.  

This means that over 100 Primary Care Networks and over 4,300 GPs are now able to push and pull data on patient referrals made via EMIS.

“The new functionality that Elemental has developed is going to take social prescribing to the next level. The fact that GPs can now see the uptake and impact of the social prescribing referrals they make, within the patient record in EMIS Web is groundbreaking. It will further strengthen the relationship we have with the community and voluntary sector and benefit our patients considerably.” Dr Rajesh Rajan, GP CWP Westminster Surgery, Clinical Director of Primary Care, CWP NHSFT

What is the Elemental Connector?

The Elemental Connector is a unique two way integration between EMIS Web and Elemental that has been accredited and approved by EMIS so that GPs and others using EMIS Web in your practice can:

  • Make an express referral for a patient to Social Prescribing Link Workers working in practices or remotely in the community within 3 clicks
  • Pushback social prescribing specific SNOMED codes and structured text into the patient record in EMIS
  • Check on the uptake of the social prescribing referral without leaving your EMIS system with social prescribing SNOMED codes and information about the referral being pushed back into the patient record
  • Check on the progress of social prescribing within Elemental via the patient record
  • Click on Elemental within EMIS, meaning the GP gets direct access to reportable social prescribing data rather than having to scroll through unstructured text in EMIS
  • Report on the success of the PCN DES Funding for social prescribing, the patient journey, ONS4, SWEMWEBS and PAM
  • Reduce the duplication of Link Worker data entry thanks to Elemental’s full integration with EMIS
  • Get a true reflection on what happens as a result of the referral beyond the GP practice
  • Better support your patients with their social needs
