The Isle of Man Government has successfully gone live with a RiO mental health and social care services system deployed by CSE Healthcare in partnership with System C.

The project is part of a three-phase framework contract awarded to System C in 2006 by the Department of Health and Social Security to provide an island-wide integrated healthcare IT system.

Under this contract, System C has already installed its Medway PAS and successfully deployed departmental systems including maternity, and A&E. Next up, due to go live in December, is the Protocol integrated children’s system from Liquidlogic, a System C company.

The DHSS said that the ability to monitor, re-evaluate and improve the quality of care given to clients was paramount in the choice of a new electronic record system for social care and mental health services.

Andrew Swithinbank, director of social services, said he was pleased with the smooth deployment of the RiO system and was delighted that the system was “simple and easy to use.”

Stuart Lees, programme manager at System C for the Isle of Man project, said, “The deployment of the departmental care record system marks a further step in moving the Crown Dependency closer towards its goal of creating an island-wide shared health and social record.”

System C acquired Liquidlogic in July 2008 for £14.2m.
