King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust announced this week that it has gone live on Allscripts Sunrise EHR in just eights month after system selection. As one of the United Kingdom’s largest teaching hospitals, the Sunrise EHR will support more than 900 dentists, 750 doctors and 300 nurses to help drive adoption of clinical decision support, which can lead to improved patient outcomes.
“This was fantastic work, managed very capably, and resulting in a really smooth launch,” said Professor Julia Wendon, Medical Director at King’s College Hospital in a statement. “I’d like to express my thanks to the King’s and Allscripts teams for their hard work and focus in driving the successful roll out of Sunrise. The new system will provide us with an even greater opportunity to transform the care we deliver through the use of better technology for the benefit of patients and users.”
“The partnership between King’s College Hospital and Allscripts will enable KCH to continue to develop integrated models of care for its patient population,” noted Steven Brain, Allscripts UK Managing Director. “The highly successful Sunrise implementation is just the beginning – KCH is now equipped to continue significantly advancing health care in the United Kingdom.”
