EuroKing, a leading provider of maternity information systems across the UK, today announced a contract to provide its E3 Maternity Information System to Cardiff and Vale University Health Board (UHB). EuroKing and the UHB will form a proactive developmental relationship to create and support a paper-light process for midwives and obstetricians, which will be used by all staff throughout the patient care pathway. The solution will mirror the All Wales Handheld Notes and will provide a definitive record of care available at the point of need. EuroKing was chosen by the UHB as E3 represented key aspects of its “perfect” solution and will enable Cardiff & Vale’s Maternity services to solve its current informatics issues on a platform that has longevity.
Cardiff and Vale UHB Maternity Services will work with EuroKing to reduce dependency on paper and to reduce administrative duplication. The time released will enable midwives to provide more direct clinical care for mothers and babies. (Some paper based records are duplicated up to a dozen times which represents a significant waste of time and effort for midwives). The UHB also aims to enhance information sharing, enabling the team to report and react to data in a productive way. In addition, the system will provide a foundation from which to plan a mobile working solution for community midwives and increase access to patient data by staff at the point of need.
Head of Midwifery, Mary Coakley and IT Services Manager, John Meredith say: “The procurement of E3 is more of a partnership than a business transaction. We will be seeking to break new ground through a continual process of improvement and analysis, and most importantly by listening to our users. Our midwives and obstetricians wanted to use EuroKing and they will feel empowered going forward that they will be supported and challenged to create better working processes for the future.”
EuroKing is part of the Wellbeing Software Group.
