Chelsea and Westminster Hospital launches digital postnatal discharge system

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has launched a new digital postnatal discharge system, powered by Lumeon technology.

The system funded by CW+, the official charity of the Trust, digitises the postnatal pathway and all tasks delivered in real time. The system provides a digital dashboard for multi-disciplinary team members to quickly see what they need to do next, and by when, for each patient to meet their discharge slot.

Staff are able to communicate more effectively with new mums, and provide a more holistic overview relating to them and their baby as regards getting them ready for home.

Dr Sunita Sharma, Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital “As an organisation, we are committed to being innovative and human-centered when providing excellent care and experiences for mothers, their families and our staff. We are very proud to see the new postnatal digital tool now in action and I see even more exciting times ahead as we expand on what the system can allow us to do.”

Dr Zoë Penn, Medical Director at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust “Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is passionate about health innovation delivering exceptional patient care. Together with our charity CW+, we identify technology partners that will help us excel in these areas. We have worked closely with the Lumeon team and we are excited about this fantastic new system that will help to deliver great care to new mums and their families.”

Robbie Hughes, Founder and CEO of Lumeon “Lumeon is very excited for this opportunity to help Chelsea and Westminster Hospital transform both the patient and staff experience, while improving efficiency. The NHS has recently announced both maternity and digital health services as key focus areas in the Long Term Plan. Our work with Chelsea and Westminster has been put into motion at a particularly significant time and we look forward to scaling our innovative system across the NHS, starting with maternity and postnatal pathways.”
