Leicester’s Hospitals use Nervecentre Assessment Software Tool to complete over 10,000,000 electronic assessments
Since 2019, Leicester’s Hospitals have completed an exceptional 10 million patient electronic assessments all on…

We recently conducted a mini-survey to find out what CIOs and CCIOs rated as their biggest priorities when looking to buy an EPR. Unsurprisingly, their top requirement was an EPR that meets the needs of clinicians. The high weighting this receives is, of course, a reaction to the poor reputation much EPR software has for meeting this critical imperative. Thankfully though, we’re turning that around. At Nervecentre, our customers regularly praise the ‘clinician-first’ approach we take to solution design – and it’s a principle that sits at the heart of our culture. So, with our survey confirming that clinical need is the key consideration when choosing an EPR, I thought I’d share our approach in this crucial area.
I’ve long been of the opinion that digital healthcare software suppliers should aim to build systems that clinicians ‘love’ to use. We receive fantastic feedback from Nervecentre users that suggests we’re on the right track against that objective – and some of those comments are published alongside this blog. Feedback of this kind makes such a difference and helps keep us focused on our goals.
So what’s the secret? In my view, the fundamentals boil down to a handful of critical User Interface design decisions. It shouldn’t surprise anyone that these are difficult, architectural building blocks – not form design or screen layout. After all, if it was as simple as designing clearer forms, this would all have been resolved a decade ago! No, a system loved by users must be built as such from the first line of code. So that’s where we started more than ten years ago…. and it’s still our first principle when we’re coding new solutions today.
On that note, this blog coincides with the latest software release for our Next Generation EPR. With it we bring a fully integrated suite of HIMSS 7 capabilities to our customers – from closed loop medicine administration, orders and results, through to letters, outpatients and GP Connect. These, of course, sit alongside the full suite of ED and patient safety features on which we’ve made our name. All mobile. All designed ‘by clinicians, for clinicians’. And all developed here in the UK, with the unique challenges of the NHS front of mind.
So here are our six ‘musts’ for delivering a system that clinicians will love:
These six ‘musts’ are non-negotiable, baseline features of Nervecentre EPR. And clinicians love it. They love that our intuitive interfaces give them all the information they need, simply and quickly – in real-time, wherever they are, in a single-click. They love that the system is built purely around their own needs, and that the architecture is agile enough to enhance functionality as those clinical needs evolve. And fundamentally, they love having an EPR in their pocket – part of their uniform, an indispensable tool.
Our latest enhancements take Nervecentre EPR to the next level. If you want to see more, please reach out and we’d be happy to arrange for one of our clinicians to demonstrate the system to you.
We think you’ll love it. In fact we know you will – because it’s been built that way from the first line of code.
