North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust, which runs Peterborough City, Hinchingbrooke and Stamford and Rutland Hospitals, has successfully installed a major new computer system which stores detailed information on all patients.
The huge project saw 1.67million current and archived patient records transferred from two separate Patient Administration Systems into one bespoke system which will also serve Trust patients using outpatient services or radiology at Doddington Hospital and the Princess of Wales Hospital in Ely.
David Pratt, Director of Finance, and executive sponsor of the project, said: “This new system takes us another step further in unifying our Trust since the merger of Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals with Hinchingbrooke Hospital in April 2017.
“Our clinical staff who work across our hospital sites have previously had to navigate two different clinical systems to perform key tasks, such as looking up test results, accessing patient correspondence and dictating letters. Our new Patient Administration System provides one system for all these functions. This enables us to provide more seamless care for patients and will improve safety and increase efficiency.
