The Healthcare Partnership Network (HPN) event has been underway at Oulton Hall in Leeds this week. The event which provides a platform for NHS leaders to come together to share their own views and experiences has proven to be productive, relaxed and very well organised. Chaired by Emma Challans – Deputy COO of Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, HPN boasts a wide range of experienced and skilled speakers presenting key industry topics.
Stephen Dunn CBE, Chief Executive at The West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust, opened Day One with a discussion centring on how the development of technology can allow the Trust’sexecutive team to establish how well they are doing.
David Walliker, CIO at Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust, analysed patient flow at the sites within the Trust and the improvements that can be made in several key areas to help with this.
The headline sponsor presentation was from IMMJ Systems and Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. Linda Watts shared the paperless journey to date of the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, with particular focus on the EDM implementation with IMMJ Systems and MediViewer. Key insights were covered into the importance of EDM on a paper-light journey, key issues the Trust wanted to address
with an EDM deployment and what made IMMJ Systems and MediViewer stand out. The Trust and IMMJ Systems also outlined the future plans for working with MediViewer to help the Trust in achieving HIMMS 7 status.
A beautiful venue has been chosen for this event which provides a relaxed yet productive atmosphere to encourage the attendees to get to the bottom of key industry issues.
