(Thomson Reuters ONE via COMTEX) –CHICAGO and LONDON, Dec. 17, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (London, UK) selected the Allscripts Sunrise solution as its new Electronic Patient Record (EPR) system to deliver enhanced care.
With 1,400 beds across two sites, King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is one of the United Kingdom’s largest teaching hospitals. It is also a member of the Shelford Group, which represents the leading academic healthcare organizations in the U.K. Building on its existing capability, the hospital plans to replace its legacy EPR solution with the integrated Sunrise clinical solution to enhance and integrate patient care, to be delivered across the whole of the Trust. Sunrise can also provide improved efficiency and engagement for clinicians, who can use Sunrise Mobile MD to quickly interact with patient health information on a mobile device.
“King’s is committed to providing the best experience for our patients and providing our staff with the tools they need to deliver outstanding care,” said Nick Moberly, Chief Executive. “The new system will help our organisation deliver improved clinical outcomes and enhance operational efficiencies. This is an exciting development for King’s, and the patients we serve – and will make the working lives of our staff much easier.”
Sunrise is an integrated suite of clinical solutions used by leading hospitals and health systems in the U.K. Sunrise is a highly configurable solution that offers clinician-specific workflows to help drive adoption of clinical decision support, which can lead to improved patient outcomes.
