Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust, the UK’s largest, has selected NerveCentre’s next-generation EPR to drive digital capabilities and improve patient care in what it calls a transformational deal.
NUH selected the Nerve Center following a competitive procurement process under the Health System Support (HSS) Framework Agreement.
The agreement builds on a long-standing partnership between NUH and Nervecentre, placing Nervecentre at the heart of the Trust’s digital transformation strategy.
Nottingham is the fourth trust in the East Midlands to commit to the Nerve Center EPR in just over three months. In December, Northampton General Hospital announced that it had selected Nerve Center as its EPR supplier.
The announcement follows news in November that Derbyshire’s two acute NHS trusts, Derby and Burton University Hospitals and Chesterfield Royal Hospitals, had selected the company to supply their joint EPR. Nearby University Hospitals Leicester is already a key development partner for the Nerve Center’s next generation EPR system.
The company says Nervecentre has a proven track record at NUH and has been a trusted partner since 2010. NUH began implementing Nervecentre’s e-prescription and healthcare management solution in June.
Under the new agreement, the trust will consolidate its existing paper-based and digital systems into a single integrated EPR, all in one place. Nervecentre will be at the heart of the Trust’s single, connected digital system, aligned with the NUH digital strategy to deliver improvements, integration and new ways of working.
“Nervecentre’s EPR is a key part of our strategy,” says Anthony May, CEO of NUH. “It’s about giving teams the digital tools they need to provide the best care possible.”
Andy Callow, Chief Digital Information Officer at NUH, said: “After a rigorous clinical and financial evaluation, we selected Nervecentre as our new integrated EPR. will play a vital role in achieving our digital vision.
“The result is an intuitive solution that reduces the number of digital systems in place and allows clinicians to efficiently view and enter patient information in real time at the patient’s bedside, from many complex and poorly connected systems. will move to.”
“NUH is a true innovator,” added Nerve Center CEO Paul Volkerts. “They are leading the way in using real-time data to make care safer and more efficient. Their ability to fully embrace and leverage the latest technology is pioneering. We are proud to be a part of their journey to revolutionize care.”
