The ambitions of the Electronic Health Record strategy at Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust are to improve the quality of care, clinical safety, patient experience and productivity, by enabling the creation of comprehensive clinical information shared electronically both within the Trust and with partner providers across general practice and social care. RiO will help to improve the patient experience as clinicians in both the Trust and in general practice will have the correct up-to-date information about the patient at the point of care.

Bill Gregory, Chief Finance Officer at Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be working with Servelec HSC to harness new technology to change the way that we deliver care to our patients. The RiO electronic patient record (EPR) will support our clinical staff to provide high quality care by enabling them access to timely, accurate information about our patients. The system will allow us to reduce the amount of time spent on paperwork and enable information to be shared between the relevant professionals to ensure a joined up approach is taken when making decisions about patient care. We’re really looking forward to getting the development underway and embedding the system within our teams.”

Alan Stubbs, CEO at Servelec HSC, said “We are proud and delighted that Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust has chosen our market leading RiO solution to help in delivering its strategy. It is a trusted and robust solution that is utilised by thousands of healthcare professionals to support the delivery of care to patients. The increasing use of electronic patient records and sharing of information is helping to enhance clinical management and improve patient outcomes across the NHS.”
