Salisbury IT Specialists Develop Innovative New System to support Patient Care 

IT specialists at Salisbury District Hospital have developed an innovative new electronic application that gives clinical staff access to patient information in one single, easy-to-use format to help in the care and treatment of their patients

Details of patients’ tests, diagnoses and treatment is held securely in a number of areas within the Trust’s computer systems. Clinician’s View enables doctors and nurses to access all information sources electronically and create one single page of key information that they need during a patient consultation.

This ensures that clinical staff have the latest clinical information and results at their disposal.

Graham Branagan, Consultant General and Colorectal Surgeon said: "Clinician’s View is proving to be a real asset for staff who need access to key up-to-date information about a patient when making decisions about their care. Although different pieces of information such as the latest test results would previously have been available from several databases, clinical staff can choose what they need to see easily and quickly in one place, while they are with their patients."

The Salisbury District Hospital team has a history of developing in-house IT systems that provide additional support to clinical staff. The team developed a new electronic system that ensures that there is a more comprehensive handover of patients at night between clinical teams. This system has attracted interest from other hospitals across the country.
