The Trust currently uses the Allscripts PAS to support all aspects of patient management and care. By adding Allscripts Sunrise, combined with Allscripts dbMotion, the Trust will create a community-aware EHR that can share harmonized 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."
"Allscripts has proven to be a supportive and innovative partner," added Mark Stanton, CIO at the Trust. "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 EHR, we undertook a thorough assessment of potential partners. It was clear that Allscripts could deliver the reliable tools we need to streamline care processes and ensure up-to-date health records are in the hands of clinicians at the point of care."
Used by leading hospitals and health systems around the world, Allscripts Sunrise is a highly configurable EHR that offers workflows to help drive adoption of clinical decision support, which can lead to improved patient outcomes. Allscripts dbMotion is an industry-leading data connectivity and harmonization solution that helps healthcare organizations meaningfully share data across disparate systems within clinicians' workflows.
