Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust selects Medway from System C
31st January 2018
Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust today announced that System C has been selected to supply a new core computer system, including an integrated patient administration system (PAS), a theatre management system and business intelligence software.
The contract was awarded after an extensive competitive procurement process and deployment is due to be completed in October 2018.
Brighton and Sussex is a large acute Trust, with an annual budget in excess of £550m and 8,200 employees, 4,800 of whom are users of the PAS.
Wilson Sharpe, assistant director of IM&T at Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals, said: “A modern, efficient patient administration system is a fundamental requirement to providing good patient care. After an extensive procurement process, we are delighted to appoint System C to provide this key platform.”
Ian Denley, System C’s joint CEO, added: “Brighton and Sussex is our 25th main hospital system deployment and we are really pleased that they have chosen us. The Brighton team is professional and enthusiastic and we are looking forward to going live in October.”
System C will be deploying its Medway PAS and business intelligence software, integrated with the Bluespier theatre management solution.
System C’s Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals contract follows similar recent contracts with St Helens and Knowsley and North West Anglia. Of the 22 Medway systems to go live in the last five years, 17 were completed in 12 months or less.
Brighton and Sussex provides the majority of its services from two main sites: The Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton and the Princess Royal Hospital in Haywards Heath. The Brighton campus includes the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital and the Sussex Eye Hospital and is also the major trauma centre for the region.
