Sheffield NHS Trust selects HP to improve patient care

The Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has selected HP Enterprise Services as the prime contractor in a project to improve patient care by enabling an integrated view of patient information.

A new Clinical Portal from Orion Health, with single sign-on from Imprivata, will provide the Trust’s staff with fast, secure real-time access to health records, whatever their location.

HP will provide an up-to-date view of all clinical activity within the Trust while ensuring the continued security of patient-related data.

This project will hopefully result in improved clinical productivity and allow staff to spend more time with patients.

White papers from our partners

Dr David Throssell, Medical Director, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, said: "We need to have a complete picture of each patient when we are providing their care."

"This new portal will act as an umbrella across a number of our current computer systems, meaning hospital and community health staff will only have to log in once to view the different patient information systems, on one screen."

"It will enable a single, clinical view of every patient and will enable more joined up working between community, acute and primary care professionals. The more information we have, the better the quality of care and treatment we can offer. In short, the clinical portal will give us the ability to access key patient information, wherever we are and with one click of a button.
