Northern Ireland Electronic Care Record Programme

The Northern Ireland Electronic Care Record (NIECR) was introduced to bring together key information from health and social care records from throughout Northern Ireland in a single, secure computer system to provide better, safer, faster care.

The NIECR contains information from existing electronic record systems from hospitals and clinics throughout Northern Ireland as well as some information which is recorded directly in the system.

The use of Electronic Care Records has been integrated into a range of health and social care IT systems to support the delivery of a significant number of primary and secondary care services.
