NHS Digital has recently launched a brand new toolkit, allowing licensed digital health and care website and application developers to add the NHS login to their platform. This will allow more patients, wherever they see the NHS login button, to access their healthcare information across different authorised platforms. Seven services have integrated the NHS login at this point and many more are expected to follow suit soon.
“NHS Digital has recently launched a brand new toolkit.“
NHS Digital’s Lead Delivery Manager, Rebecca Jarratt, stated: “NHS login benefits patients by giving them secure access to their approved healthcare apps in a way that removes the need for multiple logins and passwords. We want to integrate as many digital services as possible, as quickly as possible, to allow patients to take advantage of ease of access across to their apps. Feedback from suppliers has been that the NHS login integration process has a real sense of purpose and urgency on both sides, which was very gratifying. We were also told by another supplier that it’s been a breath of fresh air working in this way and that they were pleasantly surprised at the responsiveness of the NHS login team.”
