30th July 2012 - Ascribe has announced today the order of its Emergency Department (ED) solution, Ascribe Symphony, by West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust (WSFT).
Ascribe's ED solution is an Electronic Patient Record (EPR) system designed to improve patient flow through the department, providing users with simple, yet comprehensive access to clinical information at 'the point of care'.
The Trust chose Ascribe's ED solution because it will provide them with one central information system within the Emergency Department, reducing time in retrieving information and improving throughput of patients. The user friendly graphical interface will improve access to patient information and retrieval of real-time clinical data. WSFT also liked the ability that Ascribe Symphony gives to potentially save masses of storage space, should the Department decide to go paperless.
Alain Sauvage, Emergency Medicine Consultant at West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust, commented: "Ascribe is a welcome relief to take the Emergency Department's IT into the twenty first century!"
Stephen Critchlow, CEO at Ascribe, commented: "We are looking forward to helping West Suffolk NHS Foundation improve patient care with the systems they are installing."
