Cerner’s Rapid Response dashboard now allows nurses at Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust to work proactively when they’re dealing with people in critical care, reducing lengths of stays and improving the patient experience.
Staff at Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust (SASH) are now able to dedicate more time to patient care, after becoming the first Cerner Trust in the UK to use Child Protection – Information (CP-IS) to speed up the process of checking essential information for vulnerable child patients.
In an effort to provide more efficient, effective care, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust (Imperial) implemented near real-time capturing of patient observations/vital signs directly into their electronic patient record, releasing an estimated 5,800+ nursing hours to patient care over a 15-month period.
“We’ve got the Discern alerts that run in the background; we’re intercepting patients with sepsis and AKI and things... We tend to pick that up an awful lot quicker. So, in terms of patient outcomes, we’ve noticed a big change there as well.”
— Makeba Nash, chief nursing information officer, Croydon Health Services NHS Trust
“The patients are getting seen quicker, and those patients that are getting our help that we wouldn’t have even known about before.”
— Lucie Sulman, critical care outreach nurse, Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
Sepsis is one of the biggest killers in the UK, yet when caught early, can be treated effectively. The difficulty is spotting a complex condition – but technology is here to help.
Kingston Hospital needed to save time and resources, but still needed to thoroughly document the care they provided. Working with Cerner, it was clear that observation and recording was one area to target.
