Univ Bristol issues Medway details

30 April 2012  

University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust has issued more details of its go-live with its Medway patient administration system and electronic patient record.

EHealth Insider reported last week that the trust had gone live with the new system from System C, a McKesson Company, over the previous weekend.

The trust has now told EHI that the migration of around 125m records from the trust’s IHCS PAS and other systems was conducted overnight from Friday to Saturday (20 to 21 April).

The emergency departments went live on Saturday afternoon, after which there was a roll-out to wards and remaining departments, ready for outpatients to start work on Monday morning.

Paul Mapson, director of finance, said there was no reduction in hospital activity over this period.

The Medway modules that have been implemented are the full range of patient administration functions, emergency department, theatres, maternity, casenote management, integrated business intelligence and Medway Clinicians Desktop.

The desktop is being used to bring together patient information from systems across the trust, giving users quick and easy access via single sign-on to PACS images, ICE order communications, the clinical document store, results viewing and Medicode clinical coding services.

Activity data from Medway is also being fed into departmental systems and the trust’s existing business intelligence system, which will continue to be used for the production of operational reports.

Mapson said: “Overall, the Medway go-live at University Hospitals Bristol has been characterised by the professional attitude of the trust’s operational staff.

“They have remained patient and good-natured while getting used to the new systems and maintaining high quality care for their patients.

“I would like to thank every member of staff involved in this project for their dedication and hard work in making sure the implementation was a success.”

Over the coming months, the trust will be rolling out more functions within the core Medway modules, and through the desktop, ahead of the next phases of an ambitious Clinical Systems Implementation Programme.

Well that's an average of just 50 records each for 2.6m patients

So if you take outpatient appointments, A&E attendances, theatre visits, ward stays and some of the clinical stuff that would make sense. 14 hours end to end from a third party legacy system into a moden EPR is pretty good. Going live overnight is not something I ever saw from the national programme. I did once see more than a week's planned downtime on a NPfIT deployment!

How many????

Daniel Defoe 137 weeks ago

125 million records??? And in just 24 or so hours? Perhaps a definition of a "record", and what was migrated might help to explain.

The trust has sent EHI the following note:

In the context of UH Bristol’s data migration, ‘records’ include episodes, attendances and other activities that are related to their respective patient MPI records (only 2.6 million of those) as part of the data load process into Medway. The migration process (back-up, extracts, transform and load, etc) took 14 hours.
