Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust (CPFT) has signed a contract with TPP to deploy the SystmOne Mental Health module and the SystmOne Community Hospital module.

The contract builds on the existing Shared Business Service (SBS) Framework contract the trust has with TPP, covering community services and will provide the trust with a single electronic patient record (EPR) that will underpin all clinical services.

CPFT will work with TPP to deploy the system across the trust’s mental health and community hospital services over the coming months.

The value of the contract and the length of time for which it would run were not disclosed.

CPFT’s head of information and performance, Jonathon Artingstall, said: “This is a really exciting time for the trust and our service users.

“The opportunity TPP offer will enhance our existing, integrated care models, allowing us to progress our digital and research agendas, whilst offering improved outcomes to the people of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.”

CPFT serves a population of just under a million people and employs nearly 4,000 staff. The Trust’s 2,000 staff supporting Mental Health services will be moving over from their legacy solution to SystmOne.

It has been a Servelec trust since 2012, but with the majority of GP and community services in the area also on SystmOne, patients will now benefit from a single electronic patient record encompassing all care settings.

TPP Account Manager, Kaiying Xu, added: “It is great that CPFT have chosen SystmOne for their mental health and community hospital services.

“We are looking forward to continuing the great work we have already done together, so all of the Trust’s staff can realise the benefits of SystmOne.”
