Hull University Teaching deploys DXC Technology’s mobile app

Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust has deployed DXC Technology’s Clinical Aide app to provide staff with mobile access to its electronic patient record.
The app provides access to a patient’s allergies, problems, observations, medication, results and other documented information, and is supporting healthcare teams at the hospital access patient records in higher risk areas, such as COVID-19 wards.
Dr Alastair Pickering, Chief Clinical Information Officer at Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, said: “The way our clinical workforce is currently deployed requires greater flexibility to access important information.”
“Going to a static device and logging in is now often not practical, and Clinical Aide is allowing clinicians to access results and other crucial information on-the-go, in a way that is much more supportive of current ways of working.”
Neil Proudlove, Head of Care Records at Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, said: “Clinical Aide access has been deployed to hundreds of staff in just a few weeks and has been popular with clinicians, who have access to results as soon as they become available and who don’t need to go back to base to view important information in the EPR.”
“We plan to deliver Clinical Aide to more of our 8,900 staff, and to make it even more comprehensive as a tool. One of the main aims would be to use the mobile technology to support ward rounds and medical handover processes.”
