Fortrus and the Paper Free Health Record (PFHR) team at Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospital continue on their journey to make Paper Free working a reality.
As part of the first phase of the PFHR programme, the Cardiology department are now using electronic notes throughout the In-Patient and Out-Patient areas and Clinical Pharmacology and Infectious Diseases went live two weeks ago.
This week sees Dermatology and Respiratory go-live! The Paper Free floorwalkers will be on the ground providing 24/7 support throughout the go-live period. Staff in the areas that have gone live, are already seeing improvements in their daily activities.
The Trust will be going live with 'Unity' on the 18th July, enabling the PFHR to be rolled out throughout the Trust. Giving clinicians access to digital medical records that consist of structured and unstructured data. The Trust currently hold hundreds of thousands of paper medical records and many thousands of paper forms. The scope of this project will enable the Trust to transition from paper-based working methods to digital ways of working.
Unity will not only improve the user’s access to information, it will also improve their ability to record information about a patient.
The PFHR is not only a software application; it is also a multitude of technologies and services brought together by Fortrus to deliver an outcome.
