Bristol selects System C admin system


University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust (UH Bristol) has selected System C to supply and implement its Medway patient administration and electronic patient record system across all of its hospitals. Solutions purchased include PAS, Accident and Emergency, maternity, theatres, the clinical data collection module, and the data warehouse and reporting system, Medway Business Intelligence. In addition, System C's portal product, Medway Connect, will be used to integrate numerous third party and trust-developed applications including Medicode and Sunquest ICE. The seven-year contract also includes a comprehensive deployment service including data migration, localisation, integration, training, testing, floor walking and support. Medway will also replace the trust's existing Patient Administration System suite. Stephen Hann, clinical systems programme director at the trust, said: "We are a large and complex trust and we needed a strategic product that could be configured to meet the needs of all of our users. This is a step-change in PAS and clinical functionality and will allow us to realise many benefits for patients and staff."
