Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust is the largest NHS trust in the country with 10 hospitals employing over 28,000 staff and in September 2022 they went live with their Electronic Patient Record (EPR). Powered by Epic and called HIVE, this was the largest EPR go live in Europe, making this one of the biggest and most ambitious transformation projects in the history of the NHS.
Almost a year on, Jacqui Cooper, CNIO at the trust, joined us to reflect on her journey from inception, through to implementation, with a particular focus on the subsequent change in working culture. With a transformation project of this scale, the go live date was just the beginning, the real challenge came in the months that followed.
In this webinar, Jacqui explores what came next and how she and other leaders came together to train and lead staff to adapt their working practices and engage with the software.
This webinar was chaired by Co-chair of the South West Digital Health and Care Network, Melanie De-Witt, CNIO at North Bristol NHS Trust.
This webinar was hosted in collaboration with the South West Digital Health and Care Skills Development Network.
With demand for health and care services increasing, it is more important than ever to understand what this means in practice.
As part of the HFMA's programme of work this event is aiming to increase awareness amongst NHS finance staff about digital healthcare technologies
