Dudley trust selects Allscripts for fully-integrated health IT solution


Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust adds Allscripts Sunrise EPR and dbMotion interoperability platform to Patient Administration System

The Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust has selected Allscripts fully-integrated healthcare IT solution to help achieve its objective to become a fully-digital hospital.

The trust, a long-term user of the Allscripts Patient Administration System (PAS), will adopt Allscripts Sunrise as its new electronic patient record (EPR) and the Allscripts dbMotion Solution to provide community-wide interoperability.

The trust currently uses the Allscripts PAS to support all aspects of patient management and care.

By adding Sunrise, combined with Allscripts dbMotion, it will create a community-aware EPR that can share harmonised patient information across care providers, to enable better-informed, safer and more-efficient care to its 450,000 patient population.

“We are committed to becoming a fully-digital trust that provides exceptional care to patients,” said Dr Jane Dale, consultant endocrinologist and chief clinical information officer at the trust.

“This requires us to take a leading role in connecting up the broader healthcare community of Dudley and the surrounding area.”

Mark Stanton, chief information officer, added: “We are delighted to extend our relationship further as we take this next step in our strategy for digital excellence.

When searching for a replacement for our current EPR, we undertook a thorough assessment of potential partners. Allscripts could deliver the reliable tools we needed to streamline care processes and ensure up-to-date health records are in the hands of clinicians at the point of care.”
