Savience Clarity was introduced into the new South Western Acute Hospital at Enniskillen in July 2013. This was followed by a large-scale implementation into all outpatient departments at Altnagelvin in 2014. Savience systems for patient arrival and call were installed into the new Hospital and Primary Care Centre at Omagh when it opened in June 2017. The system at Omagh supports both outpatient and GP appointments.
On all sites, patients use a mixture of wall and floor mount kiosks to check in and then the facilities within Clarion are used to call patients through to their treatment rooms.
Directions provided from the kiosks have been instrumental in helping patient flows through their appointment stages. Clarity dashboards provide the clinic teams with essential information about patients at all stages during their appointments.
The integration challenges across Western Trust have highlighted the full range of Savience Connect capabilities.
The PAS systems located across the Trust are updated by Savience Connect either through use of HL7 messaging or via our scripting tool, Boston Workstation. Boston is also used within the Emergency department to update the Symphony Emergency system with key streaming data, collected at the kiosks. HL7 messaging is used within the North-West Cancer Service, located at Altnagelvin to update Varian Aria in real time.
Western plan to go live with the Savience Reminder service, mobile platform and electronic clinic outcome forms in 2018.
- Common patient interface across all hospitals in Western Region
- Bar coded appointment letters have been key to an exceptionally high rate of patient usage at all the hospital sites within Western Trust
- Electronic outcome forms will streamline the collection of outcome data and reduce clinical risk by reducing the number of incomplete outcome episodes.
