South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is the largest trust in the Tees Valley in the United Kingdom.
South Tees implemented Miya Precision to digitise patient care processes and records, while providing a trust-wide orchestration layer to integrate new clinical data with patient data in existing trust systems, using the FHIR standard for data interchange.
Miya Precision’s modern, modular EPR capability will allow information currently held in disparate systems to be consolidated and represented in a consistent format for application of artificial intelligence and advanced clinical decision support.
Due to the successful implementation of Miya Precision, South Tees have extended the initial contract to include Smartpage and Miya Observations in addition to Alcidion.Cloud hosting and managed services.
Andrew Adair, Chief Clinical Information Officer at South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, commented: “This is far more than a traditional EPR. There is genuine excitement that we are going to leapfrog some of the technologies in other parts of the health service with what we have coming”.
Lindsay Garcia, Chief Nursing Information Officer and Interim Deputy Chief Nurse at South Tees Hospitals, said: “As we go further in our plans around clinical decision support, our new technology will support our brilliant clinicians in making even more improvements for patients in incredibly busy and complex environments. This is the start of transformational change that will have much-needed benefits for both patients and clinicians”.
As a clinically-led organisation, the safety and wellbeing of our patients and staff, underpinned by the quality of the care we provide, is at the heart of our mission. It is what matters most to people who use our services. Alongside our influence on wider determinants of health, this is our core organising principle.
We will continue to empower our clinicians to take the decisions about how we manage our resources and deliver safe, quality care across our hospitals and services for children, adults, families and our communities. In doing so, we will deliver the highest standards of patient-centred healthcare to communities in the North East of England, North Yorkshire and beyond.
