Electronic patient records
We have launched a programme to roll out a new electronic patient record system across all of our community and mental health services.
Known as Paris, the system aims to streamline systems and processes and improve the quality of patient information available, as well as reducing duplication and paperwork.
Our staff have been trained and issued with mobile tablet device to allow them to access Paris at the point of care, while working with a patient. This means that they no longer have to use paper-based systems and will not have to return to their base to update a patient’s record, freeing up more time to deliver patient care.
Pennine Care selected Paris as its preferred clinical information system following a procurement exercise in partnership with other NHS trusts from around the North West.
All Trust services aside from Trafford Community Services are now using the Paris system.
Staff working within Trafford Community Services are using a different electronic patient record called Emis. Emis will make sure all patient records are available in the same place and, as the system is used by other healthcare professionals in the borough, it will support delivery of joined-up care for our patients.
