In today’s rapidly changing healthcare landscape, it’s more important than ever to be up to date on industry advances, current legislation and fundamental shifts in care delivery. With each issue of Perspectives, we bring together the leading voices in healthcare to explore how the industry is leveraging new technology innovations, facing healthcare challenges head on, and preparing for a smarter healthcare future.
Cerner Sweden has signed an agreement with Region Skåne for a integrated digital healthcare environment, replacing hundreds of existing IT systems in hospitals and primary care facilities for a comprehensive solution.
Cerner UK are excited to announce that we, in partnership with NEL Commissioning Support Unit (NEL CSU), OptiMedis-COBIC UK and Imperial College Health Partners (ICHP), have been chosen to provide a new national population health management dashboard for NHS England and Integrated Care Systems (ICS) across the country.
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.
Ireland's Maternity Services welcomes the first babies born with an electronic health record The HSE and eHealth Ireland are delighted to announce the arrival of Emily, one of Ireland’s first newborns to have their own electronic health record from birth. Weighing 7lb 5oz, Emily, daughter of Ellen Shine and Aidan Cotter from Cork, arrived in Cork University Maternity Hospital on Saturday 3rd December.
It’s been 12 years since Cerner opened up in Ireland, and the existing team of 60 in its Dublin office is expecting significant expansion over the years to come as the market for healthcare software and services grows in both Ireland and across Europe.
"It will make an enormous difference to have information available to anyone dealing with the patient as they need it. We won’t all be looking for the same patient chart."
