EPMA goes live at Nottingham University Hospitals – htn

Nervecentre’s electronic prescribing and medicines administration solution has gone live across Nottingham University Hospitals.

The City Hospital went live with the system in May, across two weekends, and Queen’s Medical Centre moved to the new system earlier this month.

It means the hospitals have moved away from a paper process to the EPMA solution. For the go-live at Queen’s Medical Centre, drug charts covering 14,100 prescriptions for more than 800 patients across 40 wards were transcribed on to the system over two days .

The go-live was received with excitement from the trust and its team, who shared updates on Twitter by the @TeamNUH Twitter account:

Nervecentre is already in use across Nottingham University Hospitals, for functions including checking test results, clinical noting, risk assessments and bed management. The latest addition of EPMA is said to be another step toward granting clinicians access to all of the information they need in one place, through a mobile device.

The trust’s chief digital information officer, Andy Callow, also shared the go-live on Twitter:
