Our November roundup of all things go lives features Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust going live with electronic care planning and South West London and St George’s Mental Health NHS Trust launching a patient management solution.

Electronic care planning introduced at Barnsley Hospital 

Most recently we had the announcement that Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has deployed electronic care planning.

The functionality is integrated with System C’s EPR and was developed in partnership between the trust and the supplier.

It ensures every patient is assessed and given a care plan on admission and the plan then acts as a ‘living document’, evolving in time to ensure care is optimised and desired outcomes are reached.

Patient management solution deployed at South West London and St George’s

Up next we have South West London and St George’s Mental Health NHS Trust going live with a patient management solution from Servelec.

Staff at the trust can directly enter information onto a digital touchscreen through the solution, which instantly displays information about all patients in the hospital wards, including status and location.

South West London and St George’s Mental Health NHS Trust is an existing user of Servelec’s Rio EPR software, which integrates with the solution, and has a two-way interface that has significantly reduced dual input of data supporting safer and more efficient patient care.

Wye Valley NHS gets new ePMA system

The beginning of November saw Wye Valley NHS Trust make a bid t improve patient safety for prescribing across its four sites by deploying a new electronic prescribing and medicines administration (ePMA) system.

The project was led by Bristol based Epro in partnership with Better with the pair delivering a best of breed approach for Wye Valley, which is one of the Global Digital Exemplar Fast Followers.

The OPENeP software was developed by Better together with a range of Epro’s own functionalities including a clinical portal and allergies module.

Bath and North East Somerset gets integrated care record

Finally, the end of October saw an integrated care record being deployed across Bath and North East Somerset.

Powered by Graphnet, the record will create a single point of information for care professionals across the community.

It will share information between Virgin Care, General Practices, Bath and North East Somerset Council and Royal United Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
