Salford Royal Announces New EPR Provider

Salford Royal's Executive Director of Finance and Deputy Chief Executive Tony Whitfield said: "Salford Royal continuously strives to be at the forefront of health informatics and prides itself on being a leader of the information revolution to transform the quality of healthcare it delivers.

"Our current EPR system has served us extremely well for the last 10 years but system development is moving forward at an ever faster pace and an EPR system must move with the times to meet the needs of a patient and their clinician.

"By investing in the new system we are securing an EPR to serve us many years into the future. Excitingly, SCM has the potential to include a patient portal, meaning at some point in the future Salford Royal could be one of the first Trusts to enable patients to log on and view their own health records."

Glen Tullman, Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts, said: "Allscripts is committed to helping Salford Royal provide better quality and more efficient healthcare. The Sunrise system is built on an open platform that offers access for both the hospital and community caregivers, creating a Connected Community of Health. The information available to providers will support their decision making process as well as support the analytics that Salford Royal can use to enhance care."

Allscripts will shortly commence the implementation process for the new system. Clinicians will be able to use the new EPR system in September 2013 after completing a programme of training.
