South Tees signs deal with Alcidion to adopt clinical decision support

South Tees Hospitals NHS FT has signed a deal to implement technology from Alcidion to integrate systems and utilise clinical decision support.
As part of the trust’s best of breed strategy, the tools will help to integrate data between systems, automate routine tasks and support clinical staff with proactive aid for decision making.
Andrew Adair, chief clinical information officer and emergency medicine consultant at South Tees Hospitals NHS FT, said: “Our agreement with Alcidion will allow us to accelerate our digital maturity and adopt modern technology that will have a very significant positive impact on the daily lives of the people who use it.”
“The systems we are about to implement will help to lighten the burden faced by clinical staff who are working fantastically hard, by reducing time spent on manual processes and providing some extremely impressive clinical decision support tools.”
The platform from Alcidion will be used to provide an orchestration layer to integrate information held across existing systems, converting it to the FHIR standard. This will allow data currently held in systems to be consolidated and referenced by artificial intelligence and advanced clinical decision support provided through the platform.
It means healthcare teams can benefit from intelligent algorithms to support clinical noting, natural language processing, flow management and remote monitoring of patients
Kate Quirke, managing director, Alcidion Group, said: “Clinical staff working across South Tees Hospitals will be among the first in the UK to benefit from our range of healthcare technologies that have been specifically built to make the right thing to do, the easiest thing to do, even during the busiest of times.”
“It is extremely rewarding to see South Tees Hospitals enter into this agreement so soon after we formally launched Miya Precision as the first smart clinical asset for the NHS.”
