Using the nationwide Maternal and Newborn Clinical Management System (MN-CMS), hospitals in Cork and Kerry were able to improve the process and reduce the time taken to recruit expectant mothers into clinical trials that could be used for a range of maternity studies.
The EPR allows clinicians to access up-to-date information about patients, enabling them to deliver better care, improving efficiency and reducing the chance of an error being made. The system also uses patient data to create documents for clinical records and correspondence to GPs and patients. The system went live at Barnet Hospital, Chase Farm Hospital, Edgware Community Hospital, Finchley Memorial Hospital and the maternity department at the Royal Free Hospital in November 2018. It was implemented in just 11 months to enable the opening of the new digital Chase Farm Hospital.

There is no doubt about it – providing excellent patient care requires our care teams to have access to the most up-to-date information available. Located in East London, St Joseph’s Hospice boasts a very long history of specialist palliative care. Among the biggest hospices in London with a large catchment area, St Joseph’s takes referrals from many different sources – be that a GP, hospital or community healthcare professional, or the patient or family themselves.

Intermountain Healthcare and Royal Free London are working toward a common goal of reduced clinical variance. Improving care quality and reducing cost are two of the highest priority goals for healthcare leaders. With healthcare costs continuing to rise and clinical outcomes increasingly linked to reimbursement, optimising care and lowering costs are critical factors in determining the competitiveness and effectiveness of hospitals and health systems. Of all the approaches leaders can leverage to address these issues, reducing unwarranted clinical variance is receiving increased attention.
