We have introduced our new electronic patient record, Unity, which has led to a big investment in capital, staff time and effort. The new system provides clinicians with more time to care as they are less reliant on paper systems and duplication of entries into multiple existing systems. One of the major benefits is the introduction of electronic prescribing, which has reduced medication errors significantly.
Case note scanning went live during 2017, as preparation for electronic patient notes. The system is now working well and has enabled the paper notes on site to be dramatically reduced.
