Electronic Patient Record System Launched

An electronic patient records system is being set up in Jersey.

Irish and UK-based supplier MS MAXIMS has been chosen to deliver it.

£9.4million has been set aside in the government plan for the project.

The government says it will help clinicians to diagnose patients more effectively, reduce medical errors, and provide safer care.

Medical records will be used without depending on paper files.

"This is a much-needed initiative that will not only facilitate sharing across the Government’s health services, but ensure that requirements of the E-Health and Our Hospital Project are met.

"We have done a lot of work with the people within HCS who will be using this system and they have told us that they find the system accessible and easy to use.

"As we digitise our services, the benefits to Islanders will be felt by having easy online access to their health data, care plans, medications, clinical results, and scheduling management." - Ricardo Da Silva, Digital Nurse.
