Orion Health has significantly increased its offering to the United Kingdom’s largest healthcare provider, the NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Health Board (NHS GGC).
Orion Health says it has expanded its offering within the NHS GGC with two new modules, Medicines Reconciliation and Problem List.
The NHS GGC is likewise extending its use of Orion Health’s Coordinate solution by adopting Healthcare Pathways to support care coordination and patient transfer and handover.
Jonathan Selby, Orion Health executive vice president for Europe, Middle East and Africa, says the new system will provide healthcare professionals with a comprehensive picture of an individual’s care needs and help reduce the potential for any medication related errors.
“It will allow authorised users to understand a full list of patient allergies and problems, and enable them to keep track of medication changes that occur during an inpatient episode of care. After the patient is discharged from hospital it will provide a summary of these changes to other care professionals,” says Selby, in a statement.
“NHS GGC has acted as a beacon site for others and has driven forward the integrated health information agenda in Scotland, as well as acting as a reference study for health regions across the UK and internationally.”
