INFORM Sexual Health now has the UK Medical Eligibility Criteria for Contraceptive Use in-built. The integration of the UKMEC 2009 will bring real benefits to sexual health services and those professionals delivering contraceptive care.

Supporting Healthcare Professionals

The integration of the UKMEC 2009 is much more than just providing an electronic version of the guidance within the INFORM system.

INFORM has taken the UKMEC 2009 categories and applied them to the Clinical Care Templates within the Sexual Health Electronic Patient Record (EPR).

So whether a user is performing a contraception assessment or delivering a defined method of contraception, INFORM provides your staff with the UKMEC guidance relevant to the care being delivered.

How does this work?

INFORM takes the guidance set out in the UKMEC 2009, the conditions and the UKMEC Categories and provides the Healthcare staff with real time guidance and alerts.

INFORM ensures that the pertinent question are raised and responded to relevant to the care being delivered and provides the user with the relevant UKMEC "Score" based on the information collected.

INFORM also provides quick access to an electronic copy of the guidance for reference to fully support the staff delivering care. INFORM understands the challenges Sexual Health services face in transforming documented standards to operational practice and are excited to be able to offer this valuable support and functionality.
