We are introducing a new Electronic Patient Record (EPR) system within the hospital. The first phase of Rotherham Hospital’s EPR system has now gone live across most of the hospital, with the remaining functionality being phased in gradually.
Once fully implemented, the system will hold all of your clinical and health information in one place, to make it easier for doctors, nurses and healthcare staff within the hospital to make decisions about your care.
The old system, which included both paper-based notes and a variety of computer records, meant that different sets of information could be within different hospital departments at any one time. This new system will improve the speed and efficiency of your treatment, as all information needed will ultimately be in one place.
All hospital staff who are directly involved with your care will have some level of access to this system, and your information will be updated at each point of care.
Rotherham Hospital will be using the MEDITECH v6.0 software for its Electronic Patient Record system.
