The move towards working with an Electronic Patient Record programme continues to gain momentum. More than 160 staff attended the last update event in June 2013 and another lunchtime drop-in session has been arranged for Wednesday December 18th 2013 in the Lecture Theatre at Forth Valley Royal Hospital where there will be a lot of progress to report.
Significant progress is being made to move from three systems to one Patient Administration System (TOPAS). The Helix Inpatient system will migrate to Topas Inpatients in early 2014, followed by the decommissioning of the PIMs community system.
Jonathan Procter, IM&T Director/E-Health Lead, said: “A lot of progress has been made in the last year and I am extremely grateful to everyone involved in taking this important work forward.”
Dr Henry Robb, Associate Medical Director and Clinical Lead for the EPR Programme said: “When Clinical Portal and Order Comms are available, the programme will start gathering momentum and clinical staff will have a real opportunity to shape how they will work in the future.”
