Papworth Hospital decided to implement the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges (AoMRC) headings into their eDischarge summaries to:
- ensure consistent recording of information
- improve the quality of information shared with GPs
- enhance audit data
The pilot started in September 2016 to coincide with the 2016/17 NHS Standard Contract deadline to implement the AoMRC headings in eDischarge summaries by 1 December 2016. The success of the rollout was largely due to nursing engagement and support from Chief Clinical Information Officer (CCIO), Chief Information Officer (CIO), Patient Services and IT.
