Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust adds Allscripts Sunrise EPR and dbMotion interoperability platform to Patient Administration System
The Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust has selected Allscripts fully-integrated healthcare IT solution to help achieve its objective to become a fully-digital hospital.
The trust, a long-term user of the Allscripts Patient Administration System (PAS), will adopt Allscripts Sunrise as its new electronic patient record (EPR) and the Allscripts dbMotion Solution to provide community-wide interoperability.
The trust currently uses the Allscripts PAS to support all aspects of patient management and care.
By adding Sunrise, combined with Allscripts dbMotion, it will create a community-aware EPR that can share harmonised patient information across care providers, to enable better-informed, safer and more-efficient care to its 450,000 patient population.
“We are committed to becoming a fully-digital trust that provides exceptional care to patients,” said Dr Jane Dale, consultant endocrinologist and chief clinical information officer at the trust.
“This requires us to take a leading role in connecting up the broader healthcare community of Dudley and the surrounding area.”
Mark Stanton, chief information officer, added: “We are delighted to extend our relationship further as we take this next step in our strategy for digital excellence.
When searching for a replacement for our current EPR, we undertook a thorough assessment of potential partners. Allscripts could deliver the reliable tools we needed to streamline care processes and ensure up-to-date health records are in the hands of clinicians at the point of care.”
Used by leading hospitals and health systems around the world, Allscripts Sunrise is a highly-configurable EPR that offers workflows to help drive adoption of clinical decision support, which can lead to improved patient outcomes.
