Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals Trust has implemented an electronic prescribing and medicines administration system from WellSky.
The system has gone live in the outpatients department, with further wards to go live soon. The project is being supported with remote training and virtual project meetings, which to date has led to 13 project days saved said the organisations.
Jan Birley, Project Manager, said “the project team had a job to get done and they had to make sure it happened in the safest way”; one of the reason the project was accelerated this year.
Sam Coffey, Lead Pharmacist, commented: “In terms of us being forward thinking and proactive, we were very quick to take on the latest version of WellSky EPMA. There is so much rich functionality in this system, the Medicines Reconciliation module and the Task functionality to name just two, I think these are innovative new ways to provide patient benefits as well as user benefits.”
Robert Tysall-Blay, CEO of WellSky International said “We are so delighted when a Trust takes on their move to EPMA with such dedication and persistence, a rapid deployment such as this sets a benchmark to other Trusts.”
“At this difficult and critical time in healthcare we are delighted and congratulate the team at Brighton on their rapid implementation and in recognising how valuable EPMA is in supporting front line services and patients during this crisis.”
Professor Mike Cross Chief Pharmacist, said: “This fits well with our aspiration to not be satisfied with mere implementation. We are all motivated to go further than that and reap every possible benefit that we can from this comprehensive solution.”
