Given the incredible success of the project, Dr George Findlay, Chief Executive speaks about what it means for Medway?s wider digital transformation plans. As both CEO and a practising clinician, George is uniquely positioned to talk about the clinical and operational considerations around digital transformation, and how the trust views it as a cultural change rather than isolated business projects. For Medway, EPR deployment was a strategic objective through the pandemic, which explains why they committed to rolling out during a time of critical pressure. George will speak about how they were able to do it so quickly and smoothly, recording impressive measurable benefits just three weeks in.
As a central, strategic priority, the EPR deployment underpins much of the digital strategy for the trust going forward. Medway has joined East Kent and Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells who are also live with Allscripts, and George will discuss how together with neighbouring trusts, their EPR capabilities are contributing towards fully integrated care across the region. George will speak about the team and how it was structured, how they were able to achieve such quick success, learnings for other trusts, and how digital transformation is underpinning the trusts strategic direction.
