eHospital Programme at Leicester's Hospitals

Our plan is to create a digital, paperless hospital with the eHospital programme – an integrated approach consisting of several key projects. Each project aims to deliver new and innovative care pathways, better optimise resources and improve information sharing across health and social care settings.

  

Productivity

eQuip

  • Introduce free WiFi for patients and staff
  • Replace outdated IT equipment to increase productivity and efficiency
  • Improve the cyber security within our Trust, ensuring your data remains protected and visible only to those that need to access it.


Patient Safety 

 eMeds

  • Present all prescriptions in the same electronic format, improving clarity and reducing the risk of error.
  • Electronic prescribing system will support doctors at the point of prescribing your medications.
  • Reduce time spent finding or rewriting drug charts to ensure you will receive your in-hospital medications in a timely manner.
  • Clinical decision support will guide clinical staff at the point of prescribing and automated prompts will notify nursing staff when your medications are due.
  • Improved legibility of prescriptions will mean no more deciphering handwritten prescriptions.
  • You and your GP will be better informed of your ongoing medications, once discharged from our hospitals.

 

Efficiency

eCorrespondence

  • Improve correspondence between care providers, reducing the delay in your GP Practice receiving clinical information and instruction around your care.
  • Make patient letters more accessible
  • Standardise transcribing & dictation tools to ensure both you and your GP receive clear information about the care we have provided you and any necessary ongoing support or treatment required.
  • Monitor turnaround times of electronically produced letters being sent to GPs to reduce delays to your ongoing care.

Patient Safety

eAssessments

  • Remove paper documentation so that clinical information gathered by nursing staff will be held digitally and securely.
  • Recognise and escalate deteriorating patients and ensure the right team has the right information at the right time to aid clinical decision-making.
  • Information gathered by nursing staff via mobile devices will be more readily available to share electronically amongst clinical teams.
  • Automated alerts will be sent to the relevant clinical staff within our hospitals.


Accessibility 

eInvestigations

  • Enable electronic requesting of tests to support your care as removing paper requests will improve our efficiency.
  • Ensure clinical teams have immediate access to results as soon as they are available.
  • Test results are checked and acknowledged electronically by the medical team looking after you.


Performance

eImaging

  • Improve performance and reliability of our Radiology solution to allow our Radiology Department to work more efficiently
  • Further reduce delays in sending images and corresponding reports.
  • Improve patient safety by ensuring you receive the right treatment at the right time.
