The shape of future EPR deployments – Barnsley and Walsall pave the way

9th December 2020, 12:30 to 13:30

The massive disruptions of 2020 have delivered a sea-change in expectations of large scale EPR deployments.  Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust both went live successfully with System C’s CareFlow EPR during the first coronavirus lockdown.

Working largely remotely, they rolled out new integrated functionality including the PAS, departmental systems such as maternity, theatres and ED, as well as clinical tools such as clinical communications, e-observations, noting, care planning and contact management systems. Walsall even achieved a 100% success rate in data migration and kept up a live Twitter stream during the go-live.

The two Trusts supported each other throughout as well as working in close partnership with System C.  Both were migrating from Lorenzo systems which they had bought under the centralised National Programme for IT.

They will discuss:
1. How to bring people with you: flexing team-working, partnerships between Trusts and with suppliers.
2. The nitty gritty: managing a ‘big bang’ deployment remotely – before, during and after go-live.
3. Lessons learned.

From Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
Tom Davidson – director of ICT
Dominic Bullas – CCIO
Richard Billam – programme manager

From Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust
Keith Dibble – EPR programme director
Mark Harrison – programme manager
