Norfolk’s community health care trust wins additional funding for pioneering Mobile Community Working Project
Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Trust (NCH&C) has been awarded additional funding from Eastern Academic Health Science Network (EAHSN) for continuing to improve access to patient records for clinicians by implementing a TPP Mobile Application.
The TPP Mobile App provides staff with the ability to view and update patient records no matter whether there is connectivity or not, ensuring patient records are more accurate than ever before.
Emma Jackson, Clinical Lead and Andy Richardson, Project Manager from NCH&C attended an event with EAHSN (Eastern Academic Health Science Network) to talk about the adoption of the TPP Mobile Working App, and hear about seven other exemplary projects in the wider healthcare sector.
Mike Yarde, Assistant Director of Projects and Investment at NCH&C said, “Our team have done a fantastic job in planning, configuring and rolling out the Mobile App, to make it work in this geographically challenging area. Our clinicians have given us great feedback about how it has transformed the way they access patient information at patient homes and in the community. It is also great to get the support of NHS colleagues across the region in achieving this award.”
Victoria Corbishley, Director of Transformation at EAHSN added: “We are pleased to confirm that Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Trust have been nominated by their fellow digital pioneers to receive a further £10,000 in recognition of the progress made to date by their mobile record MW app team.
“Eight pioneers were selected in areas such as cardiac rehabilitation and stroke assessment and received support including access to coaching and masterclasses for a period of 12 months. At the end of the year, fellow pioneers were asked to vote for the project that has demonstrated most improvement across the year and we are pleased to announce the NCH&C team as the winners. The additional funding will be put to excellent use by the team and we look forward to keeping up with their progress over the next twelve months.”
Andy Richardson, Project Manager at NCH&C said “It was great to be offered such an opportunity to talk about the project, and to be selected as the winning project which has demonstrated the most improvement across the year is a fantastic accolade.’’
