Airedale NHS Foundation Trust (ANHST) have gone live with SystmOne hospital functionality with Accenture. Together, they have deployed the first SystmOne Patient Administration System (PAS) across three sites, Airedale hospital and two outpatient clinics in Skipton and Ilkley, replacing their old PAS system.
Jim Burke, Managing Director for Accenture’s Health industry group in the UK comments:
“The combination of Accenture’s systems integration experience and TPP’s technology is enabling physicians with access to real-time clinical information and the ability to share information with primary care organisations in the region, as a result improving care delivery across all areas of Airedale,” he said.“There are few health offerings that can deliver as much value in only six months.”
In late November, the SystmOne PAS was switched on across all wards and departments. Prior to going live, TPP’s in-house deployment specialists migrated more than 400,000 patient records and over one million appointments to SystmOne, which ensured staff were enabled with vital information from day one. TOO and Accenture will remain on hand to shadow progress on the wards and departments over the coming weeks.
Implementing the SystmOne PAS provides staff with the right information to create an efficient and streamlined patient journey through the hospital. SystmOne’s advanced bed management solution with an interactive ward view, allows staff to easily monitor patients all from one place. In addition the implementation of the PAS means that staff no longer look to paper copies of referrals or faxed documents for the most up to date information, for GPs using SystmOne, as it is fully Spine compliant. Following attendance at A&E, clinicians in the hospital can then electronically send full discharge letters to patients’ GPs
