Allscripts Managed Services at Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh
Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has a long-standing relationship with Allscripts. The trust has developed a Health Information System, or HIS, using the Sunrise™ electronic patient record and opened the Allscripts Digital Experience Centre at the Royal Albert Edward Infirmary in November 2019. A few weeks before the ribbon-cutting ceremony, it also signed a contract with Allscripts® Managed Services to provide around-the-clock monitoring and support, to access new functionality, and to create headroom to focus on strategic issues, including its ambition to reach HIMSS EMRAM Stage 7. In this case study, Martyn Smith, Associate Director of IM&T, outlines what the trust and Allscripts Managed Services have achieved to date, and how the partnership supported the organisation in the first wave of COVID-19.
