Zinc Digital Are Amongst The First To Offer HSCN Services

Zinc Digital has spent years working within the Healthcare industry, providing websites, secure portals, service apps and staff intranets to organisations across the country. We pride ourselves on offering the most innovative solutions available – and that’s why we’re amongst the first in the country to move everything into the new Health & Social Care Network (HSCN).

HSCN, or the Health and Social Care Network, was implemented to replace the N3 system. It’s solves some of the issues that were associated with the previous offering, which was becoming outdated and inflexible.

With the new HSCN, the possibilities in terms of healthcare technologies are endless. There is now the capability for a range of connectivity solutions, including mobile connectivity. The difference that this will make to clinicians will be significant. At the moment, service providers who work in the community must wait until they can access the network to share data. This can lead to delays in updating important patient care information, which in turn can slow down response times and action.

Communication between organisations will also be greatly improved. The HSCN will connect doctors, pharmacists, and social care workers to the same system, without the restrictive services previously imposed by the N3. Whereas the N3 Network was a single supplier network, the HSCN is a set of connectivity, service management and security requirements.

In order to offer this to our clients, Zinc has complied with the guidelines set out by the HSCN to become a provider of platforms hosted securely through Carelink’s cloud infrastructure, which has which has direct connectivity into both HSCN and the Internet, in order to protect service users and staff.

The Healthcare industry is one that has specific needs and requirements. Zinc Digital have over 14 years of experience meeting and surpassing these requirements to offer our clients only the best.
