Previously referred to as Exeter data. It is part of the National Health Application and Infrastructure Services (NHAIS) platform and provides web-based access to patient data.
The NHS currently uses two solutions to maintain and access patient demographic data: NHAIS systems and the Personal Demographics Service (PDS). New systems are being developed to decommission NHAIS and Open Exeter.
This work will mean that the NHAIS and much of Open Exeter will be closed. PDS will become the single, national source of patient demographic information for health and care services in England, Wales and the Isle of Man.Back to Glossary
