Salford Royal Activates Allscripts Electronic Health Record System

Stocks in this article: MDRX

CHICAGO, June 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust has successfully implemented Allscripts (NASDAQ: MDRX) Sunrise Clinical Manager (SCM). The activation occurred the weekend of June 8 th; three months ahead of schedule, and on budget.

Sunrise Clinical Manager is an acute care Electronic Health Record. The new system will help Salford Royal, one of the UK's highest regarded healthcare providers, transform its caregiving. Having utilized an Electronic Patient Record (EPR) for over ten years, Salford Royal's investment in Sunrise Clinical Manager and its innovative technology will allow the organization to accelerate the pace of transformation and provide better quality and safer care for its 238,000 patients.

After nine months of planning, Salford Royal migrated one million patient records and 180 million results, orders and documents from its old system into Sunrise Clinical Manager during the rollout weekend. During the first four days, more than 56,000 orders, results and documents were viewed and entered electronically into the SCM system by more than 3350 caregivers. The peak number of users logged in at any one time was 600. Live areas of the system include EPMA, Order Communications, results reporting, nursing assessments, doctors' notes, clinical summaries and clinical decision support. The system is now live across all of Salford Royal's wards and clinics.

Salford Royal's Director of Finance and Deputy Chief Executive Tony Whitfield said: "We are delighted to be able to implement our new EPR. We chose Allscripts because they have a proven track record in North America and will help us provide high quality patient care.

"The transfer to the new system has been a huge undertaking with our priority being to maintain the smooth and safe running of the organisation over the transition period. I am immensely proud of the Salford Royal transition team, who came together from different professions and areas of the organization, and worked tirelessly over the weekend. This was coupled with the outstanding support provided by Allscripts USA experts, which enabled the inevitable challenges to be tackled quickly and the risk of disruption to patient care minimized.

"We are now at the start of a very exciting journey and look forward to working with Allscripts over the coming months to explore the rich functionality available to us via the new EPR system. Salford Royal has an ambition to be the safest organization in the NHS and our new EPR supports us in working towards this."
