IT in focus

Our plans for using technology

Our Information Management and Technology strategy is a key part of our strategic plan over the next five years. Effective use of IT can support all elements of our plan – from new ways of working and efficiency through to improving quality.

It is aimed at providing services that are focussed on improving staff access to patient information and supporting speedier and more effective decision making. We have three key work streams in place:

  • Connecting people: with information as we move from PCs to Tablets
  • Consolidating and optimising current systems: with new ways of working and investing benefits to reduce our costs
  • Move to paperless: by implementing an electronic patient record to replace paper with electronic notes to support high quality care

What you'll see

Our major developments over the next two years will include the following:

  • New integrated Patient Administration System (Lorenzo) and an electronic patient care record
  • Introduction of iBleep – electronic bleep systems to summon medical staff
  • Introduction of wireless mobile devices and electronic document management systems
  • Development of care co-ordination systems
  • Introduction of e-rostering system for all areas
  • Introduction and development of patient web access technology and systems
  • Introduction of e-Prescription connectivity
  • Delivery of electronic medicines management systems.
