NHS Foundation Trust goes mobile with BT

Replacing paper records, the new mobile solution ensures that clinicians have the most up to date information at their fingertips and helps meet the governments’ ambitious paperless targets.

BT announced it has been awarded a contract by Humber NHS Foundation Trust for a new mobile solution, designed to transform patient care and the working lives of clinicians, while at the same time saving the Trust money.

The solution uses innovative software from Belfast company, TotalMobile, to give healthcare professionals on the move access to real-time information where and when they need it.

Staff at the Trust – which provides a range of mental health, community, learning disability, and addiction services – will now be able to access patient records, view schedules and appointments and update notes while on their rounds, using a mobile device of their choice, such as tablets or smartphones.

Replacing paper records, the new mobile solution ensures that clinicians have the most up to date information at their fingertips and helps meet the governments’ ambitious paperless targets.

It’s planned that the solution will be rolled out to 500 healthcare professionals, in multiple care settings, in the first phase from June to September.

Adrian Snarr, director of Finance, Infrastructure and Informatics at Humber NHS Foundation Trust, said: “Our Trust serves a population of 600,000 over a large geographic area. With more than 3,000 staff operating from 70 sites and many providing services in patient’s own homes, it was essential we were able to digitally capture information at the point of care.

“This mobile service allows our staff to gain instant secure access to the most up to date information stored on our electronic patient record system. This means our community teams for example, can plan their visits more efficiently and effectively to maximise their time with their patients.”
