    Leicestershire provider uses iSoft ORMIS

    NHS Leicestershire County and Rutland Community Health Services has implemented a wireless electronic patient record system to provide paper-free processes in operating rooms across five of its hospitals.

    The provider service has implemented iSoft’s ORMIS (Operating Room Information System) to manage all day-case operations at Loughborough, Melton, Rutland and Hinckley district hospitals and the endoscopy unit at Market Harborough.

    The new system allows users to manage appointments, theatre schedules, patient records, care planning and performance reports and is based on wireless mobile technology provided by Devlin Medical.

    Maggie Roberts, ORMIS business change lead, said: “We’re introducing mobile ORMIS into our day case service to further improve the safety, effectiveness and efficiency of patient care. It will replace a host of paper systems previously used to document each patient’s journey and care.

    “Patients can be assured of even greater safety and security, since there is far less risk of paperwork errors. Operating lists can be monitored and managed far more efficiently – so there is far less chance of an operation being cancelled through lack of equipment of staff availability.”

    The service has decided to implement two different carts from Devlin Medical for the operating theatres and general wards. The new system is expected to lead to fewer appointment cancellations, greater efficiency planning and improved patient safety.

    Martin Baker, managing director at Devlin Medical, said: “We are very proud of the part we’ve played in the project at NHS Leicestershire and Rutland Community Health Services.

    “We’ve worked very closely with people in the health service there to ensure we provide a solution that is delivering benefits to both clinicians and patients, almost from the first moment it was installed. We believe projects like this stand out as a beacon for the undeniable improvements mobile IT offers clinicians and patients.”
