Once you have entered the data for a patient, you can transfer the record in Section 7 of the dataset.
First, select in 7.1 the correct response for the patient. If the patient died, was discharged, or was transferred to a team that is not participating in SSNAP, you will not require the next step.
If the patient was transferred to 'another inpatient care team' or 'to an ESD/Community team' then question 7.1.3 will become available.
You can select the team that the patient was transferred to in the dropdown list. You can either scroll through the list, or you can start typing the team name/code.
Tip: If you want to type only the team code, put a bracket before the code if it is an inpatient team, and they will appear straight away, for example: (999
Once you have selected the team, and you have completed all of the necessary information in the dataset, you will have the option to transfer the patient by selecting the transfer button.
If you are transferring a record for a six month assessment, please do this on the Six Month Assessment tool rather than Clinical Case Management.
If a patient has been transferred within 24 hours then it may be that some of the questions in section 3 cannot be answered by the first team. The record can be transferred without locking to 72h and the next team can edit Sections 1-3. You need to complete section 1, 4 and 7 to be able to transfer the record.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to different legal requirements in Northern Ireland, teams in Northern Ireland cannot enter patient identifiable information on SSNAP. This also means that records cannot be transferred between Northern Ireland and England/Wales, and vice versa. If you need to transfer a record to Northern Ireland you will have to discharge to "Somewhere else".
