EuroKing Maternity Software Solutions, provider of the market leading E3 maternity information system to hospitals across the UK and Ireland has announced that its Community Offline solution is now in live operation at Ealing Hospital. The solution will be used on mobile tablet devices by midwives working in the community, linking seamlessly with existing E3 maternity workflows, functionality and other locally installed health IT systems. This enables all data to be viewed and captured offline, in a single system, and subsequently shared amongst numerous clinical environments once reconnected.
EuroKing’s Community Offline solution will be used by the midwives at Ealing to download patient casenotes onto a mobile tablet device at the beginning of each day, ensuring the latest information is taken out on community visits. During each visit, the midwife can refer to electronic patient records and update them, even if there is no internet connection. The E3 central maternity system notes are updated when a connection is made to the Trust network via Wi-Fi, 3G/4G or via trust based network points.
Lesley Deacon, Head of Midwifery and Assistant Director of Nursing at London North West Healthcare NHS Trust explains: “We really needed a solution that our community staff could use outside the hospital. We approached EuroKing about this requirement and we have subsequently designed, tested and implemented the solution together. As this has been completely designed ‘by clinicians, for clinicians’, it really ticks all the boxes for us. Staff are finding the solution easy to use and really helpful in caring for women outside of the hospital.”
Steve Avery, EuroKing’s Managing Director, commented “This is a huge leap forward in EuroKing’s ambitions to help Trusts with clinical safety, working efficiencies and the use of technology to provide a tangible return on investment.”
