The investment will enable Moorfields to move towards a fully paperless system that will provide clinicians real-time access to patient records across the trust’s 32 locations. The first phase of the implementation will be rolled-out in summer 2018.
Moorfields currently uses the OpenEyes application, which is a collaborative, open source project developed with contributions from a range of hospitals, institutions, companies and individuals. However, a more integrated solution was required to meet the anticipated needs of Moorfields as a world-leading ophthalmic clinical, research and educational organisation, and ensure that the organisation continues to deliver its high standards of patient care and experience.
Hicom will develop and build on OpenEyes, maintaining the open source solution for clinical ophthalmology functionality, and will provide core admin EMR functions from Hicom’s CareHub product suite. This will help Moorfields to implement a digital medical records solution in line with the NHS’ vision for integrated, paperless healthcare.
