LONDON, April 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Not-for-profit healthcare organisation Nuffield Health has today announced an agreement with software provider InterSystems to implement TrakCare, an integrated Electronic Health Record solution.
InterSystems TrakCare® is a leading-edge, unified healthcare information system that will provide Nuffield Health's clinicians, employees and patients with comprehensive tools and information, improving services and supporting quality and safety of care.
The partnership forms the cornerstone of Nuffield Health's vision to provide integrated healthcare propositions across the organisation, as well as the ability to provide effective transfer of care with the NHS. TrakCare's comprehensive clinical and administrative functionality, intuitive user interface, internet-based technology and ability to integrate a health record across care settings make it a compelling proposition.
Alan Payne, Nuffield Health's Chief Digital and Information Officer says, "Better use of data and technology has the power to improve health and transform the quality of care. Our ambition is to create integrated healthcare, with the patient at the centre of all that we do and our partnership with InterSystems will help us to achieve this. By joining up an individual's healthcare journey, we can not only provide an enhanced experience, but give the consumer more control over their health and wellbeing."
Nuffield Health and InterSystems will work initially on a proof of concept solution which will be deployed into pilot sites, before a full rollout across their 31 hospitals. In parallel, the use of TrakCare and other technology from InterSystems will be progressed in wider areas of Nuffield Health's business with the intention of providing a single consistent health record accessible by clinicians and patients inside and outside of a clinical setting.
Mark Palmer, Country Manager, InterSystems commented, "We are delighted to have been chosen as Nuffield Health's integrated EHR partner. Nuffield Health is a progressive healthcare organisation with a clear vision of their goals and the road they need to take to succeed. We look forward to sharing their journey to deliver integrated healthcare for their customers' health and wellbeing."
