What makes PPM+ an award winning EHR solution?
Improves efficiency – PPM+ facilitates paperless working, saving vast amounts of time and resource that were previously spent completing and managing paper forms. For example, an ophthalmology product recall previously cost a minimum of £173 and took 8.33 hours of nursing time, but now using the PPM+ scan4safety system, costs just £9 and takes only 35 minutes.
Improves care delivery – following the introduction of eObs in ward J96, there was a significant improvement in correct score calculation in metrics from 59% correct annually prior to eObs, to 97% with eObs. Similarly the prescribing of observations and minimum 2x daily observations both rose to 100%. Initiatives such as the Handover eForm and eWhiteboards on the wards both contribute towards continuity of care and a timely response to patient needs, whilst having the EHR available immediately on mobile devices means clinicians instantly have access to the most up to date patient information to make appropriate care decisions.
Saves money – PPM+ has reduced the waste associated in the purchasing, transporting and storing of 7,000+ pieces of paper per month. Print costs alone are reduced by over £20,000 each year. Individual eForms have led to considerable cost savings, such as the Unplanned Patient List which has enabled a Cost Improvement Programme of £150k. Scan4safety (which makes aspects of the EHR available on mobile devices, allowing staff to open the EHR by scanning the patient’s wristband, and perform activities such as associating the patient with products or locations) has already resulted in cost savings of over £2,300,000 (Dec 2017) whilst beyond the Trust, in 2016-2017 the Leeds Care Record, supported by PPM+, had efficiency benefits of over £3 million.
