Alder Hey Children’s Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has implemented a full digital consent process with Wellbeing Software’s eConsent.
Using patient information together with a clinical procedure database eConsent captures the permissions required for any surgical procedure. Its introduction through initial pilot and staged rollout, is part of the Trust’s wider programme of digital technology optimisation.
Alder Hey recently announced the implementation of Wellbeing’s document management technology Stratus, which is being used to digitise the Trust’s paper records. The integrated clinical viewer will provide healthcare professionals with an interface to access online patient records.
Graham Ridgway, CEO of Wellbeing Software said: “I’m absolutely delighted that eConsent has gone live at Alder Hey after the hard work from all involved at the Trust and Wellbeing. Benefits for patients and staff alike will ensure a speedier, clear, safer and traceable consent process as well as reducing paper usage, all in all a major step forward. Further great news for the NHS as a whole is that Wellbeing has a long list of other Trusts wanting to deploy eConsent, supporting Matt Hancock’s digital drive for the NHS.”
