Poole books in Medway maternity

  • 13 January 2012

System C has won a contract with Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust to deploy Medway Maternity from mid-September this year.

The trust is responsible for about 5,000 deliveries a year. The software will record the complete timeline for maternity care, covering the full range of antenatal, delivery and post-natal services for both the mother and the baby.

It will also allow the capture of links to paternal details as appropriate and will allow for the recording of names and relationships of ‘lodgers’ staying with the mother or baby.

Practitioners will use the system in the hospital and community clinics and midwives working in the home will be able to enter assessment and booking information directly into Medway using lap tops and mobile devices.

Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust head of midwifery Sandra Chitty said; “Our maternity services are very busy and highly thought of – it’s vital that we have ready access to the clinical information we need about our women to continue to provide them with the very best service we can.”

“We pride ourselves on offering truly woman-centred birthing services at Poole Hospital, and we’re confident that our new clinical information management system will allow us to focus even more of our time on the women we support during pregnancy.”

Dr Ian Denley, senior vice president System C, said the company was delighted to be working with the hospital on such a comprehensive system.

“The trust is very focused on making use of leading-edge technology to meet the challenges of joined-up and high quality maternity care,” he said.

System C will interface Medway Maternity to the trust’s existing Camis PAS and to other information systems within the hospital, such as its results reporting software and SEND, the system used within the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

The successful bid at Poole Hospital follows recent contract wins for Medway Maternity at University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust – where the company is supplying a whole PAS/EPR – and at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust.
