£200m paperless patient record management system goes live in Cambridge

Addenbrooke’s and Rosie hospitals in Cambridge adopted Epic’s eHospital system which will mean nurses can access patient records on handheld devices.

Two hospitals in Cambridge have adopted a £200m system that will eventually lead to paperless patient record management.

Addenbrooke’s and Rosie hospitals in Cambridge adopted Epic’s eHospital system which will mean nurses can access patient records on handheld devices.

The move marks Addenbrooke’s biggest patient care investment it has made.

Chief information officer Dr Afzal Chaudhry said the investment will mean patients should get medication quicker and leave sooner with the system in place.

The software is accessible by 7,000 computers and currently has 2.1m patients records stored in its database from the last five years.

Dr Chaudhry said: “It is the biggest single investment the Trust has ever made in the quality of patient care, and will make a real difference for everyone who comes into the Trust.

“Patients will get their medication quicker, nurses can spend more time with their patients and people who are treated here will get home sooner.”
