Nervecentre and University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust have won a 2017 Building Better Healthcare award for its Integrated Emergency Department Information Workflow Solution.
BBH Awards is a prestigious event attended by 600 representatives from the NHS, Design & Build, Estates & Facilities as well as suppliers of products and services into the healthcare industry. This year the awards present greater opportunities for recognition, with 26 categories across five classes – Building Design, Products, Estates and Facilities Management, Patient Environment and Special Awards.
Over 600 industry professionals attended the event at The Brewery in central London on the 5th November 2017 and were among the first to find out who the well-deserved winners of the 2017 Building Better Healthcare Awards were. Trophies were handed out in 22 categories, recognizing the buildings, people, products and processes that make healthcare such an exciting sector to be a part of.
The University Hospitals of Leicester in collaboration with Nervecentre were the winners of the Award for Best Administration, Information or Data System which is a huge achievement for both organizations. The entry was based on the information workflow solution that’s been put in place in the brand new £48 million Emergency Department in Leicester which was designed to improve professional-computer interaction, reduce paper use, allow for accurate coding of conditions and create real-time models of flow within the department.
University Hospital of Leicester’s Consultant in Paediatric Emergency Medicine, Damian Roland said:
‘This complete workflow solution, delivered with our partners Nervecentre, was designed to improve professional-computer interaction, reduce paper use, allow for accurate coding of conditions and create real-time models of flow within the department. A key feature is the ability to integrate information on desktops with mobile devices. Therefore, bedside patient information is directly available to clinical and managerial staff who may not even be present in the building. There is no other product that integrates pathway management (guiding staff through triage process), provides clear visibility of patient status, improves handovers and optimises data acquisition and analysis’
