A fully-integrated electronic theatre management system has gone live at Weston General Hospital. The hospital rolled out Bluespier Theatres across its six operating theatres, replacing their previous system, Opera.
The success at the Trust is the culmination of a programme of work to align processes and systems across hospital sites after Weston Area Health NHS Trust and University Hospitals Bristol merged to create University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust (UHBW) last year.
With a seamless integration with the Trust’s electronic patient record (EPR) system CareFlow from System C, elective and emergency theatre bookings can be easily scheduled and managed and the wider theatre record can be accessed directly from within CareFlow, allowing for end-to-end management of the theatre journey.
Electronic patient tracking will enable the Trust to better monitor, manage and improve their utilisation and theatre efficiency through easily accessible data and reports.
