University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust is a major teaching and research centre, with ambitious plans to digitise by integrating open systems. As part of its plans, the trust is implementing an enterprise systems integration platform, along with a mental health trust and a community trust that share the Health Records Centre in the same city.
The immediate aim is to close the Centre in 2018; saving around a million pounds a year in warehouse, management and transport costs, but in the longer term, the implementation will support a move from paper-heavy to paper-light working, and enable the three organisations to more easily share information with each other.
Adrian Byrne, chief information officer at University Hospital Southampton, explains: “Most hospitals, until they have a full electronic patient record, will be running a case notes library and moving records around their sites. We wanted to stop that. “We also wanted to start moving people away from writing notes on paper to entering information into digital systems. This fits with our strategy of migrating from being paper-heavy, to paper-light, to paperless.”
