EPR System at Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust

The request was successful.

Dear Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust,

We are currently doing some research and would greatly appreciate it if you could help us with the following questions:

1. Please could you confirm the main EPR system (e.g Cerner Millennium, EPIC etc.) in place at your Trust.
2. If you currently do not have an EPR system in place, do you have plants to implement one? (Yes/No) If yes, when?
3. Does your main hospital EPR system have the HL7 FHIR API’s enabled? (Yes/No)
4. If no, do you have plans to enable this at present?
5. What is the specific product name of the EPR product you currently use for your Oncology department (e.g. ARIA, FLATIRON etc.)?
6. Is your Oncology EPR HL7 FHIR enabled? (Yes/No)
7. If no, can it be HL7 FHIR enabled? (Yes/No)
8. If no, why can it not be HL7 FHIR enabled? (e.g. technology is not capable, cost related reasons etc.)

We look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Aiysha Rasul

Good afternoon,

 

RE: Freedom of Information Acknowledgement Ref code FOI 10253

 

The Trust is currently facing an increase in staff workload and resource
redeployment due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  With the added pressures on
the NHS, the Trust is unlikely to have the capacity to obtain the
information you have requested. The Information Commissioners Office has
issued guidance [1]here.

 

As a result of this, we are requesting that you consider the need for this
information at this time.  Wherever possible, we would ask you to work
with us and withdraw the request and resubmit once the pandemic is over.

 

Where your request is required urgently we will endeavour to get the
information (in part or in whole) to you as soon as we can.

 

Your patience at this time is appreciated
