    Aneurin Bevan University Health Board in South East Wales has successfully deployed System C’s CareFlow Vitals e-observations on 90 inpatient wards across 10 hospitals, including the brand-new 500-bed Grange University Hospital opened in November 2020, four months earlier than planned to help cope with the demands of the Covid pandemic.

    Vitals has proved invaluable, providing up-to-the-minute data during COVID.  The Health Board also utilised System C’s CareFlow Connect care coordination app to support socially-distanced clinical communication and remote working during COVID for its Critical Care Service.

    But, as the Wachter review pointed out, implementation of a clinical information system is just the starting point. The Health Board is working now to roll out additional CareFlow Vitals modules and to use the CareFlow Connect application more broadly.  It is also undertaking novel research with Cardiff University using CareFlow data to understand and improve the safety and efficiency of processes.

    • Hear how a large multi-site organisation delivered transformational change at the height of Covid
    • Discover how this change has helped the organisation deal with Covid in one of the UK’s worst-hit areas
    • Learn how, in conjunction with Cardiff University, the Health Board will use data from the new software to explore work patterns which in turn will bring further benefits in terms of efficiency and improved patient safety
    • Find out how the Health Board sees CareFlow as part of the next steps in its digital transformation story
