The NHS Isle of Wight has signed a deal with Logica to support the delivery of integrated patient care record systems.
The project will integrate all the information held in ten different core NHS Isle of Wight systems, to support emergency and urgent care patient information requirements. This information will be aggregated to create a single view of a patient's full record.
Kevin Flynn CEO of NHS Isle of Wight said: "This is a significant step for us. We believe that this new partnership and solution will position the NHS Isle of Wight as a beacon of urgent care best practice within the NHS community. I am confident that we will see improvements not just in how our services operate but in the level of care we able to deliver to patients."
The system was built using Logica's e-CareLogic solution, which has already been used in University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. It will be run from the NHS Isle of Wight's existing IT Department with Logica providing the services, training and support. Local NHS staff will be trained in both use and support of the system.
