Pennine Acute NHS Hospitals Trust Now Live with Full Guardian™ Functionality

K2 were delighted to be working alongside the team at Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust last month to assist them with their system upgrade from K2 Guardian™ CTG archiving to a full Guardian intrapartum solution.  This significant upgrade will allow them to now benefit from the electronic capture of the complete patient notes during childbirth, and provide a fully paperless intrapartum system for effortless data capture at the point of care.

Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust sees over 9000 births a year across their two maternity sites at Royal Oldham and North Manchester General Hospitals.  With such significant birth figures it is essential for these hospitals to have an Electronic Patient Record (EPR) system that delivers all required data capture and monitoring capabilities efficiently and accurately, as well as to be able to communicate this information, in real-time, within and outside the delivery suite to increase situational awareness and support the clinician/patient relationship. Guardian offers this complete risk management strategy and will bring together all aspects of recording care.

Guardian has been designed for complete compliance with local and national governance and supplies vital management functionality required for today’s demanding clinical environment.  Audit, reporting and governance capabilities at the touch of a button will ensure Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust now benefits from an intrapartum system that not only delivers absolute clinical utility but also from accurate, traceable and accessible data to assist with streamlining processes, assessing workforce issues, as well as increasing cost benefits.

K2 are very much looking forward to working alongside Royal Oldham and North Manchester General hospitals and know that Guardian will provide them with functionality and capabilities to ensure the safest possible environment in which to give birth.
