Trust’s EPR enforcement undertaking is lifted

04 Jul 2014 11:53:20

The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust is pleased to announce that its Regulator, Monitor, has removed the Electronic Patient Record specific (EPR) enforcement undertakings.

Significant progress has been achieved in both the stability and governance of the EPR Recovery Programme that addresses issues in relation to the initial EPR implementation.

Dr Trisha Bain, Executive Director for Health Informatics at the Trust said: “Monitor’s decision to remove the specific EPR enforcement undertaking is a fantastic achievement. This reflects the hard work of both Health Informatics and Clinical staff engaged in the programme. The Trust will continue to move forward at a pace in all of its clinical information systems for the benefit of our patients and staff.”

Notes to editors:
•  Monitor is the sector regulator for health services in England
•  Monitor will publish the compliance certificate on its website
•  In 2009, the Trust identified a need to replace the existing Patient Administration and associated systems. The Trust concluded that a fully integrated Electronic Patient Record (EPR) solution was required, to improve patient services over the long term, and conducted a market test to select an appropriate product and supplier. The Trust commenced implementation of a new EPR system during June 2012.
•  During implementation a number of significant issues were identified which resulted in the project being suspended and a detailed review undertaken by the Trust’s internal auditors. This situation was reported to Monitor, the NHS Regulator, and they took enforcement action which required the Trust to produce and deliver a detailed project recovery plan in May 2013.
