Coronavirus: Our latest COVID-19 advice for our patients and relatives
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.
