Cambridge Experience Of Electronic Record Keeping


Event Place: Webex Online | Event Specialty: Anaesthesia | Event Duration: 60 min.

Electronic health records improve the quality of care as well as improve the convenience of accessing the records for both the providers and patients. In 2013, UK Health Secretary challenged the whole NHS to go paperless by 2018, substantiated by a report submitted by Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PwC), which estimated a potential £4.4 billion per year could be reinvested in improving care by making better use of information and technology. Cambridge University Hospitals implemented the electronic health care software “EPIC” in October 2014. We had implemented this across all parts of the hospital. We have seen lots of benefits to both providers and patients.
