Our September contract and life summary presents the Hospital at Night being introduced to Plymouth University Hospitals and the Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust, which is expanding its partnership with Babylon.
Two mental health centers in central and north-west London are implementing the prescription
First: In early September, he told us about how they have two mental health rooms, run by the Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust (CNWL). marched live with an electronic prescription and drug administration (EPMA) system from TPP.
Redwood Ward and Kershaw Ward of St. Charles of West London were selected as the first pilot sites to launch the SystmOne EPMA solution in July.
Leaving paperless has meant that the recipe information in the wards is now more accessible to all clinical staff who require it. This means nurses no longer have to call the pharmacy for charts or ask doctors if they can get charts for drug rounds.
In addition, large screens have been installed in medicine carts, nurses’ offices and rooms where room rounds are held, which means staff can access information when and where they need it.
NHS Scotland accepts agreement with GS1 UK
In late August, NHS Scotland announced that it did signed a five-year agreement with GS1 UK to help drive the deployment of standards to supplier organizations across the country.
In collaboration with the standards organization, NHS Scotland wants to use GS1 standards to enable them to identify, track and track products (i.e. medicines and medical devices).
NHS Scotland becomes the last decentralized nation – next to England, Northern Ireland i most recently Wales – Commit to the widespread adoption of GS1 standards, which provide a common language in healthcare. These standards can help underpin systems and processes to ensure data flow for each patient, regardless of care settings.
Allocate’s eCommunity adopted by five NHS trusts
Digital Health was also reported in August on how they have five NHS trusts deployed the Allocate eCommunity tool to help free up staff time and allow them to spend more time with patients.
The workforce and workforce planning tool for community health care providers has been adopted by North Cumbria Integrated Care NHS Trust, Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust, Black Country Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust and James Paget University Hospitals NHS Trust.
Technology will help caregivers prioritize their workloads and free up time that can be spent caring for patients who need it.
Royal Wolverhampton expands Babylon’s collaboration
We also saw the Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust expanding its association with Babylon in an attempt to introduce “integrated and accessible” digital healthcare.
The partnership will deploy Babylon 360 to more than 55,000 people covered by the Royal Wolverhampton Primary Care Network.
Babylon 360 provides patients with digital access to health through an app. According to the company, it provides users with 24-hour access to information, health monitoring and health professionals.
Royal Wolverhampton has been working with Babylon since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic to encourage the adoption of digital services in the area.
Hospital at Night introduced to Plymouth University Hospitals
Finally, in mid-August, Digital Health reported on how Plymouth NHS Trust University Hospital has presented the Nervecentre night hospital.
The centralized, mobile digital platform means that patient care during the night shift can be closely monitored and prioritized if necessary. Between 8pm and 8am, the software is used to ensure that room requests are sent electronically to the acute care team coordinators. They can then assign tasks to their medical colleagues with a single click.
The system provides real-time information, making it easy for the acute care team to know which doctors are available, where they are in the hospital and what their current workload looks like, and assign tasks to the doctor more appropriate.
