University Hospital Limerick has launched a new patient management system to improve patient care, representing a step-change in using information to deliver services in the Emergency Department (ED).  
 
The electronic health record from IMS MAXIMS will enable the ED - one of the busiest in Ireland - to better manage increasing demand on services and improve the tracking of a patient's journey in the new clinical environment.
 
The new system that went live on Friday 9th December, is functionally rich, easy to use, fully integrated into other hospital systems and has a comprehensive suite of reporting and analytical tools. It gives consultants and their teams the capability to maximise the operation of the ED.
 
Richard Corbridge, CIO, Health Service Executive (HSE), said: "The new system enables real-time information to support the management of patient flow and delivers bedside clinical information to staff, enabling safer, more efficient care to be delivered."

Policy proposals to accelerate the adoption of digital innovation have to be a good thing, right?

In his latest blog, our Chief Medical Officer and CCIO, Professor Michael Thick, argues why initiatives such as the recently published Accelerated Access Review are welcome, but how funding, technology assessments and interoperability need greater focus.
  
Prof. Thick's comments, featured in DigitalHealth.net, Government Computing and Building Better Healthcare, also stresses the greater imperative in tech transformation; resolving the digital paradox .
