See EMPACT Connect yourself
As well as being improved visually, EMPACT Connect now has a guest access homepage, meaning that anybody on the NHS network can view the basic elements of the site before requesting access to the rest.
Connect has been developed as a central location for teams across the East Midlands to access and share important information. It's an online library of key knowledge for commissioners. Apart from being a great aid to commissioning, Connect offers a secure, region-wide forum for a growing number of users.
Already boasting numerous libraries containing hundreds of documents to be accessed and downloaded, Connect is constantly being updated with relevant and useful information. Featuring an advanced search facility, users are able to locate the document they are looking for with minimum effort. Enter a keyword, and narrow down the results by selecting different tags, including year, location and document type.
Recent additions include a new national care home contract, and service specifications for a community diabetes service. If you are working on a new diabetes pathway project, for instance, simply type in 'diabetes' to see a range of documents which may provide the answers you are looking for.
