The Trust is a leading research centre, the region’s largest provider of medical and dental teaching and is one of the largest acute NHS Trusts in the country, with an income last year of £507m. It employs over 7,500 people, delivering over 100 different clinical services from a group of nine hospitals in the heart of the city.
The selection was made after a rigorous six month Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) procurement process involving many suppliers. Solutions purchased by UH Bristol include PAS, Accident & Emergency, maternity, theatres, the clinical data collection module and the data warehouse and reporting system, Medway Business Intelligence. System C’s portal product, Medway Connect, will be used to integrate numerous third party and Trust-developed applications. This includes integration with Medicode and Sunquest ICE.
The contract also includes a comprehensive deployment service including data migration, localisation, integration, training, testing, floor walking and seven years’ support. Medway will replace the Trust’s existing Patient Administration System suite (HP-EDS Swift).
