Coordinate My Care (CMC) is a digital NHS advance care planning service that supports people with long term health conditions, and those at the end of their life, to live their final days in the way they wish.
For patients with a CMC care plan, created in partnership with their family and clinicians, everyone they meet along their health and care journey knows their diagnosis, how they wish to be managed and what to do in the middle of the night when their own doctors and nurses may not be available.
Benefits of CMC
- Supports patients to express and co-design their wishes about how and where they are treated.
- Enables all healthcare professionals to offer more personalised medical care, with full respect to each patient’s preferences.
- Promotes system flow through digitally enabled community services and shared-care platforms enhancing care, reducing costs, and improving bed availability.
- Reduces information scarcity across the system and promote cross organisational working.
CMC in Cornwall
Kernow Health CIC is coordinating the roll-out of Coordinate My Care (CMC) across Cornwall on behalf of NHS Kernow and is working in collaboration with primary care networks (PCNs), community teams, hospices, South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust, emergency departments, 111 integrated urgent care services, patient advisory groups, adult social care, and the voluntary sector.
CMC will be initially trialled in PCNs who have volunteered to be early adopters, with a formal review being undertaken to inform the strategy of the ongoing consecutive roll out.
