North East Sector Community Electronic Patient Record


Problem Statement

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 

  • Phased project.

  • Phase 1

    • Delivery of TPP to replace iPM for MSK Physio in HMR, incorporating clinic booking associated with eRS interface.

  • Phase 2

    • Main Project rollout to the NES, Oldham, HMR and Bury. The deployments within each of these boroughs will be run concurrently deployed by service

  • Project assumption that a full ePR is being deployed

What are the Benefits.

Reduce costs

  • 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

Share Data

  • 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.
