Maternity care in Ireland has undergone a sea change in recent years, moving from countless versions of paper notes to a single electronic health record for every mother and baby.

The Maternal and Newborn Clinical Management System (MN-CMS) has transformed clinicians’ workflows by introducing immediacy, clarity and standardisation nationwide, resulting in better data for enhanced reporting, and an improved experience for the people who rely on it. Such has been its impact, it was honoured at the Tech Excellence Awards in 2018.

At the 2018 European Collaboration Forum, we were joined by Orla Sheehan, who is a NICU nurse and system administrator for MN-CMS at Cork University Maternity Hospital. She spoke to Cerner’s David Clancy about the benefits and future of the system, and you can listen to their conversation below.


Ep. 1: Ireland-wide maternity transformation


“We had very good clinical input into our design phases, so there were clinicians at every stage of this who gained national agreement on a number of issues so that we could build all of these into MN-CMS.”

Battling sepsis on World Sepsis Day and beyond

13 September 2018
This World Sepsis Day, over 20,000 people will die from the condition, including 120 in the UK, and according to the Dr Foster research unit at Imperial College London, more deaths from sepsis are being reported. However, when drilling down further into the data, the main reason for the increase is improved awareness of sepsis. Doctors and nurses are recognising deteriorating patients earlier and are coding sepsis cases more accurately. This has led to a rise in coding for sepsis, and a subsequent increase in known sepsis-related deaths.
