We’re kicking off our new #SystemsSpotlight series by celebrating Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust (CPFT)’s successful electronic patient record go-live during Covid-19.
Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust has successfully gone live with TPP’s SystmOne Electronic Patient Record (EPR) across its children’s services. Working in partnership with Channel 3 Consulting, the implementation was completed in a remote working environment during the Covid-19 pandemic and is the first phase of a major digital transformation programme which will continue to be implemented under Covid-19 restrictions.
Launched in 2019, the Trust’s digital transformation programme ‘OneVision’ saw the tremendous potential for a single patient record to facilitate better patient care and standardise process. Recognising the profound impact that this new integrated care record would have on patient care during Covid-19, the Trust expedited the programme and worked with Channel 3 Consulting to fast-track a remote implementation.
Adapting to an entirely remote delivery model, the blended delivery team was able to rapidly design and deliver over 223 virtual training events to Trust staff using Microsoft Teams to enable the successful deployment.
Reflecting on the go-live, Clare Mundell, ‘OneVision’ Senior Responsible Officer and Chief Pharmacist at Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust said, “Undertaking a new electronic patient record implementation this year was never going to be easy but we amended our approach to include virtual training, remote support at go-live and increased super-users on the ground. The whole team worked as one to achieve this outcome”.
The remaining services at Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust are now deep in the wider roll-out of this transformative new EPR, with further go-lives planned for December and early 2021.
