Salford Royal Announces New EPR Provider

Stocks in this article: MDRX

SALFORD, England, Aug. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Salford Royal has announced Allscripts as the provider of its new Electronic Patient Record (EPR) System.

The Trust has used its current EPR system, iSoft Clinical Manager (iCM) for 10 years, allowing the organisation to have a patient-centric electronic record including prescriptions, test results and patient assessment notes.

Approximately one million patient records are held on the secure system, which has 7,000 users including 160 GPs across 55 surgeries in Salford. In moving to the new system the Trust will migrate approximately 14 million clinical letters and around 100 million diagnostic results.

Having derived maximum benefit from their current system, Salford Royal started the procurement process for a new system last year. The organisation's Trust Board has now given the go ahead for the implementation of Allscripts' Sunrise Clinical Manager (SCM).

Taking advantage of features offered by SCM will enable the Trust to increase the reliability and consistency of care and promote evidence based practice supporting an improved patient experience and outcome. The resulting enhanced safety and efficiency all contribute to the Trust's strategic objectives around safety and quality.

Salford Royal Consultant Physician Dr Bob Young said: "The new system will create a better and safer experience for patients who can be confident their health records are being held in one central, secure location, which can be accessed by health professionals involved in all stages of the patient's care.

"Departments which have previously been reliant on paper will be able to use the system. For example, adding Accident and Emergency (A&E) means clinicians in this department will electronically log and track decisions on patient care, manage bed capacity and waiting times.

"The new system will also be compatible for both hospital and community staff, for example, health visitors and district nursing teams, which is crucial to Salford Royal in its new role as both a provider of acute and community services."
