As a Global Digital Exemplar and named by the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) as one of the world’s ‘most wired’ hospitals, Wirral University Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust prides itself on ensuring its clinical and nursing staff have access to digital tools and information that help free up time and improve care.
Connectivity between IT systems is fundamental to this ambition. The trust’s journey to HIMSS level 7 has interoperability as its heart. So, when the trust turned to Enovacom to connect highly complex data from 11 ventilators to the electronic patient record (EPR) in their busy and life critical Intensive Care Unit (ICU), the stakes were high.
In this case study, discover how Wirral’s nurses are benefiting from medical device integration for a safer and more productive care, as well as how the organisation is working hard to develop workflows and blueprints for other providers to learn from their experiences around connecting mobile devices and becoming paperless.
