North East Sector Community Electronic Patient Record
Project to identify, procure and deploy a replacement ePR system across the North East Sector. The ePR is currently hosted by Pennine Care and provided to SRFT under an SLA.
What was the solution?
NES Community EPR - Due to go-live on 10th August 2020
Project Managers - Suzanne Brook & Roger Dent
What are the Benefits.
- Requirement to move off existing systems linked to SLA with Pennine Care, previous business case approved but requires formal restart to allow contract signing and immediate work to move off IPM and reduce 50k per month costs
- The EPR will allow us to share patient information between different community disciplines and with other health organisations to improve patient care.
Save Time / Better Patient Care
- This will save time transferring patient casenotes and information by post or fax. Multi-disciplinary working across sites will also be enhanced.
