Electronic Systems Assessment

UHB’s Electronic Patient Record (EPR) comprises a number of linked electronic systems:

Clinical Portal

The Clinical Portal provides a single point of access to view patient data which is held electronically.

The Clinical Portal receives digital feeds from a number of electronic system sources and allows patient-context managed access to other electronic systems. These include:

Prescribing Information & Communication System (PICS)

This is a rules-based clinical decision-support and e-prescribing system. PICS receives electronic data feeds from Laboratories IT systems (Telepath); allows manual in-put of data (Clinical Coding: Diagnostic Codes: Allergies: Physiological Observations: Operation Notes: Clinical Noting – Outpatients: Drug administration and prescription).

PACS and CRIS

Picture Archiving & Communication System (Imaging) and Radiology Information System

PRISM

Used by Cardiology and Respiratory Medicine to load and store electronic reports direct from technical equipment. Reports are displayed via Clinical Portal.

Winscribe Digital Dictation

Direct upload of clinical correspondence into folder structure(s) displayed via Clinical Portal.
