Royal Papworth’s Digital team have won an award after launching the hospital’s new Electronic Patient Record system which is already benefiting both patients and staff.

The department - which has successfully implemented the Lorenzo system over the past year - took the top prize in the Tech Project of the Year category at the Health Tech Newspaper Awards 2018.

Since introducing Lorenzo, the hospital has digitised more than a million clinical documents. Using an electronic system for managing patient care has also helped hospital staff make quicker, better-informed decisions about care - reducing the amount of time patients spend in hospital.

The team was also shortlisted in the Case Study of the Year category.
