Successful EPMA roll-out at Leicester Royal Infirmary Emergency Department

Published by University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust communications team:

The emergency department at Leicester Royal Infirmary became the latest department to benefit from electronic medication charts after yesterday’s successful Nervecentre Software eMeds rollout. The app is being used on nearly all inpatient wards across our hospitals since the wider rollout which took place last year.

eMeds will help improve patient safety across the department by reducing transcription errors and improving the audit trail of medicines when they are prescribed and administered. It will help save time for colleagues in the department as the medication charts can be found easily on computers and mobile devices rather than looking for a paper chart. Specialist clinicians from other parts of the hospital will be able to see what medications have been prescribed and administered prior to visiting the patient in ED or the patient arriving at their ward.

Graeme Hall, Chief Pharmacy Information Officer, said: “The rollout went really well and it’s brilliant that we’re the first emergency department in the country to go live with Nervecentre eMeds. It’s been a real team effort to make this rollout a success. We’ve already seen the benefits of using eMeds on our inpatient wards so I’m looking forward to seeing ED benefit from the app too. I’m confident eMeds will make our emergency department safer for patients and a better place to work.”

Well done to everybody in the eMeds and emergency department teams who helped make the rollout a success.
