Mid Essex Hospitals has launched a new Electronic Patient Record (EPR) System.
What is an EPR?
The hospital relies increasingly on the use of computers and technology more generally to aid our day-to-day activities, this new system is an operational system which will support the delivery of effective and safe clinical care for all of our patients.
The patient administration system is a combination of several hospital systems that have become obsolete and in need to refreshing. This will be the first stage in building towards a paper-lite medical record by 2020. Aligning ourselves to the NHS England’s strategy for Information Technology.
During the launch of this new system week commencing May 26th, you might notice slightly longer waiting times when you are being booked in for an appointment. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, and thank you for your patience during this time.
