    MAKING SMARTER DIGITAL CHOICES

Helping make smarter digital choices

To improve patient welfare, Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust is replacing manual notes and charts in hospitals with an electronic prescribing and medicine administration (EPMA) system known as SafeMeds. Part of the NHS drive towards digitalisation, the solution will enable nurses and other clinicians to access clinical apps at the point of care.


Computacenter brings the knowledge and expertise to help us make informed decisions at the frontline of patient care.

Rolling out devices across 3 hospitals

With a multitude of devices on the market, the Trust turned to Computacenter to conduct a product evaluation exercise. Based on user profiles, performance and hospital requirements, a shortlist of nine devices was created. Devices were scored against a range of criteria. Following a pilot at two wards, devices will be rolled out across 50 wards at three hospitals.
