East Lancashire Hospitals chooses EPR supplier

East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust has chosen Cerner as its supplier of a new clinical information system that will help to improve the quality, safety and efficiency of patient care.

The Electronic Patient Record (EPR) system pools patient’s key clinical and administrative data together in one place, enabling staff to spend less time searching for information and waiting for paper records, as well as encouraging faster commencement of treatment plans.

Jonathan Wood, director of Finance, said: “We are delighted to choose Cerner as the Preferred Supplier for the electronic patient record system, which will deliver a safe, reliable and convenient solution for our patients and clinical staff. Cerner’s EPR, selected by senior clinicians at the Trust, will firmly place East Lancashire Hospitals at the forefront of NHS health informatics and enable us to introduce further innovation for the benefits of staff and patients.

“East Lancashire Hospitals is a very large NHS Trust with around 1,000 inpatient beds and 20,000 outpatient appointments each week. That means we need the best patient information system available so our clinicians can more effectively and efficiently manage their patients at all times.”
