North Middlesex to invest £12m in clinical system revamp

North Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust is investing £12 million over the next three years to revolutionise its clinical systems.

The Trust will be working on the project with System C Healthcare and JAC Computer Services.

£7 million of the investment will come from the Trust with £5 million awarded by NHS Digital as part of the Global Digital Exemplar programme. The Trust will be sharing its experience with the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust as its “fast follower”.

The investment is to improve access to clinical information, utilise technology so that patients can better manage their own health and interact with the Trust through video consultations. The investment will also provide better data and interoperability by improving the way clinical systems across north Central London talk to each other.

Maria Kane, Chief Executive of North Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust, said: “With a rising demand for our services, we need to think differently about how we deliver patient care. This investment will help us make the best use of digital technology so that we can improve the way we work and transform our services so that they better meet the needs of our local community.”

Beverley Bryant, Chief Operating Officer, System C. “We are delighted to be partnering North Middlesex on this exciting digital transformation programme and are looking forward to working with them over the coming months deploying the System C blueprint for hospital computerisation.”
