Patients and staff across the Trust are set to benefit from a revolutionary new electronic patient record system, Cerner EPR, which officially launches on Friday 3 November.
The launch of Cerner EPR gives clinicians the ability to access patient information, enter data and complete documents at their fingertips.
The digital system is patient-focussed and clinically-led, which will transform the way we work and provide patient care, with vast benefits for colleagues, patients and their families as it provides an accurate and real-time view of each patient’s care.
Integrated medical devices will upload automatically to the patient's record, reducing potential errors and freeing up clinician's time. If a patient's vital observations and assessments are outside expected ranges, staff will be alerted and prompted with appropriate care plans to give the best treatment.
Tina Benson, chief operating officer, welcomes the imminent launch of Cerner EPR across the Trust. She said:
This is an exciting time of change and innovation. The launch of Cerner EPR has been years in the planning and will help our teams view patient records in real-time without the need for transporting physical patient notes, which also includes allowing us to share necessary information with other north west London Trusts. I am delighted that our patients will be able to benefit from the new system and its potential to improve the care we provide.
Thank you to all our staff who have helped prepare for launch. I’m excited we’re taking this leap forward in using technology to offer our patients the best possible care, and hope everyone sees the true benefits for our patients and staff in the coming days and months.
