CHICAGO, June 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has successfully implemented Allscripts (NASDAQ: MDRX) Sunrise Clinical Manager (SCM). The activation occurred the week of June 24th; a mere 15 months from the project start date.
"Our mission is to provide excellent, safe and compassionate care for every patient, every day," said Raj Jain, Chief Executive at the Trust. "The Allscripts system will support our staff to make even better use of their talent and expertise. This activation is a fantastic opportunity for our teams to take this hospital onward to even more success for the patients and families for whom we care."
Sunrise Clinical Manager is an acute care Electronic Health Record (EHR). The new system will help Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital, one of the UK's highest regarded healthcare providers, transform its caregiving. The new and innovative system, one of the most advanced in the country to be implemented, is a major step forward for the Trust in how patient and family-centered care is delivered for its 12,000 inpatients. In changing the way it provides care, thousands of previously paper-based records, patient documentation, test results, prescriptions, orders and integrated care pathways have now been included in the Sunrise Clinical Manager system, making them easy for caregivers to access.
"Quality of care and the experience of our patients are the two core guiding principles for our work," said Johan Waktare, Consultant Cardiologist and Clinical Lead for the EHR system. "Thanks to the strength of our partnership with Allscripts, we have been able to deliver this new project quickly. They are the right partner and their system has proven to be the right tool for us to deliver on our mission."Sunrise Clinical Manager provides an advanced Computerized Provider Order Entry (CPOE), as well as an integrated ambulatory offering on a single database, integrated pharmacy, knowledge-based medication administration, patient portal and acute critical care solutions. By removing its paper-based systems, Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital aims to improve the healthcare experience for both patients and caregivers. The Allscripts system helps caregivers to spend more time with patients and their families and helps the Trust to ensure that patients are not asked for the same information more than once as they move through the hospital.
