Frimley Park Hospital rolls out new physician portal
May 1, 2012 in Medical Technology
Frimley Park Hospital NHS Foundation Trust will implement Harris Corporation’s clinical portal, built on the Carefx interoperability platform. The portal will allow clinicians to view the most up-to-date electronic patient information.
The portal will enable the hospital to streamline access to clinical applications and provide clinicians with a single contextual view of patient information.
“With our clinicians able to spend more time on their core competencies, we can reduce costs through protecting investment in existing systems while establishing a paperless system throughout the hospital,” said Mike McSweeney, associate director of informatics, Frimley Park.
The first phase of the deployment will integrate six core clinical systems. Using single sign-on, clinicians will be able to access a unified view of patient-centric information in a secure, browser-based environment. The portal will be implemented in two specialties, before being rolled out to more than 500 users across the hospital and its four satellite locations.
As part of the trust’s three-year strategy, the organization intends to deploy best-of-breed systems to provide a trust-wide, fully integrated electronic patient record.
