Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust is a large NHS Trust in the English National Health Service that manages hospitals in Kent, primarily managing Maidstone Hospital and Tunbridge Wells Hospital at Pembury. Challenges broadly related to the provision of cost savings and improved functionality, whilst also bringing improvements in print security.
Allscripts Sunrise is a fully integrated platform that connects all clinical and financial aspects of a hospital or health system for inpatient, emergency and outpatient care. Apogee implemented this service alongside the Managed Print Service as an added efficiency to their operations.
By implementing Allscripts Sunrise as Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust’s electronic health record, the Trust is able to deliver an outstanding staff and patient experience, by giving clinicians the information they need to deliver excellent patient care.
From computer physician order entry and medication management to financial solutions and analytics, Allscripts Sunrise supports all the core care venues with a single platform and single patient record – across inpatient, ambulatory, emergency and other high-acuity venues.
Apogee’s Managed Print Service delivered cost savings and improved functionality through: centralised reporting features, introduction of cost ‘pop-ups’ at time of printing enabling users to select more appropriate/cost effective devices or cancel the job, controlling colour output, reducing duplicate print jobs and ensuring print jobs not printed after an agreed number of days will be automatically deleted.
Apogee’s Managed Print Service provided improved security through the introduction of ‘Find Me’ printing and ensuring all printing, copying and scanning is on a secure, ‘pull’ basis; once users authenticate with ID and Pin.
