North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust signs with System C
6th April 2017
The North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust has signed a seven-year PAS/EPR contract with System C. The new Trust opened its doors for business on Saturday 1 April, following the merger between Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Hinchingbrooke Healthcare Community Trust.
System C’s Medway software will be deployed across the Trust’s three hospital sites in Hinchingbrooke, Peterborough and Stamford, with go-live due in summer 2018.
The contract covers a PAS, business intelligence software, interoperability with existing Trust systems such as Sunquest ICE and Agfa PACs, interfacing with Personal Demographics Service and integration with the Trust’s in house developed e-Track clinical portal.
The new Medway software replaces two separate PAS/EPR systems, so the project involves combining data and standardising processes from both. System C is experienced at supporting Trust mergers in this way and most recently deployed Medway into University Hospitals of the North Midlands, which combined the North Staffordshire and Mid Staffordshire acute trusts.
Stephen Graves, chief executive of North West Anglia NHS FT, said: “We are delighted to be working with System C to deliver a new PAS which will be vital to integrate clinical services and operational systems across our newly merged three hospital sites.”
“The creation of the new North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust is a hugely positive step and we are really pleased to be working in partnership with it from day one”, said Markus Bolton, joint chief executive of System C.
“This is our 24th major hospital deployment in six years and we’ve been in healthcare IT for over 30 years. We are old hands at EPR go-lives, but it is very exciting to be working with these three hospital sites at such an exciting time in their development.”
