A case study from EMIS, a clinical systems supplier.
“A community rehabilitation team in Cheshire is offering more coordinated care to vulnerable elderly patients.
The team at the Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Trust provide vital care to ensure that approximately 750 patients – mostly frail, elderly people aged over 65, who have suffered strokes or falls – remain independent in their own homes and avoid admission to hospital.
Before switching to EMIS Web, the 45-strong team of physiotherapists, occupational therapists and therapy assistants used paper patient records. Now they all work from a common electronic patient record via EMIS Web, which has helped them to improve communication and workload planning. It is hoped EMIS Web will drive up efficiencies in patient care.”
