We want to continue to provide state-of-the-art care to our patients at Frimley Health.
A core ambition of Our Future FHFT strategy is to advance our digital capabilities, and we are undertaking an ambitious digital transformation that is being led with the launch of our new electronic patient record system on the 11 June 2022. We call this Epic EPR (Electronic Patient Record).
Epic EPR is the biggest transformation we have ever done as a Trust. It will improve everyone’s experience at Frimley Health – patients, staff and visitors.
We are getting a single electronic system to replace the 200-plus paper and computer systems we currently use. All the information about our patients will now be in one secure place. This is vital to improving our patient care and to achieving our strategic goals.
Why are we doing this?
By going on this transformation, we are guaranteeing an increase in patient safety and an all-round better and more convenient patient experience.
Our new one database will hold one record for every patient, helping us understand and plan for better care and provide excellent services.
Epic EPR removes the risks and struggles of multiple systems, ensuring our care for patients is as efficient and effective as it can be.
How will this benefit our patients?
Epic EPR will transform the way we care for our patients and change the way all our staff will work.
By bringing together our multiple systems we can provide a single hospital service wherever our patients are treated across the Trust.
Part of our Epic EPR is the launch of MyFrimleyHealth Record – a new platform that provides our patients with personalised and secure online access to their medical records at Frimley Health.
With MyFrimleyHealth Record we will be enabling our patients to play a much more active role in their healthcare.
This includes being able to view details of past appointments and book new ones, view medications, test results and allergies, send messages securely to our medical teams, and ask for repeat prescriptions for medications supplied at the Trust. And that’s just a few of the advantages.
MyFrimleyHealth Record provides patients with the resources to manage their care so they can access our services either at home or on the go.
It will be a free to use and secure platform that our patients will be able to access via our website and on an app (iOS and Android devices).
Looking after our patients and our people will always come first. In order to maintain patient safety and staff wellbeing as a result of the impact of the Covid-19 Omicron variant, our Epic EPR go live date was moved to Saturday 11 June 2022 (from 26 March 2022) to allow enough time for staff to complete their training fully.
