Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent Partnership Trust continue on their journey to paperless records

Servelec Healthcare is pleased to announce that it has now exchanged contracts with Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent Partnership Trust for the provision of RiO as their clinical information system. The contract, which is for eight years, will take a phased approach transforming the way clinicians capture, use and share information within the Partnership Trust.

The Partnership Trust has a new information system which will allow clinicians to use electronic records to support patient care and remove reliance on paper records. Once the system is in place all assessments, care plans, clinical documentation and making of appointments will be done electronically. Phase 1 of the deployment will go live in November 2015 in community hospitals and teams in North Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent including child health services in these areas. Community and child health teams based in South Staffordshire such as Cannock, Stafford, Wombourne and Codsall will go live early in 2016.

Roger Whittaker, Professional Lead for Podiatry stated:

“The introduction of RiO will give all clinical staff access to the same shared information. This will make everyone’s life much easier meaning we can get on providing great care, rather than collecting lots of information in lots of different ways.”

Amy Freeman, Chief Information Officer said:

“To sign a contract with Servelec for the Partnership Trust’s new clinical system is very exciting.  RiO should give us the ability to reduce the administration burden on staff allowing increased time to care as well as offering patients and carers electronic access to their care record and increased options for communication. The new system will be a catalyst for change in the Partnership Trust.” 

Adrienne Edge, Community Practice Educator, District Nursing stated: 

“The RiO system will move us from a fragmented unworkable system to a co-ordinated system that should meet individual needs.”
