See the future at the RD&E

The Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust are hosting a preview of the future of electronic patient care records on 22 February - and patients, Foundation Trust members and the public are all invited to attend.


The patient open day will take place in the Peninsula Medical School Lecture Theatre (next to the Research, Innovation, Learning and Development (RILD) building) on the RD&E Wonford site, 10am-12pm on 22 February.


There will be demonstrations of the new Electronic Patient Record system, MY CARE, which will revolutionise the way patients and clinical staff can keep track of individuals’ medical records.


By replacing traditional paper records with a single integrated computer system across the whole Trust, the MY CARE project will make access to information for patients and medical staff faster, smoother and more reliable. This will help ensure patients will be seen in the best place by the best clinician reducing unnecessary hospital visits or extended stays.


The new system will go live on 27 June 2020. The open day on 22 February is a chance to see the system in action. This is part of a week of events taking place in the Trust as part of MY CARE EXPO.


Professor Adrian Harris, Executive Medical Director and Deputy Chief Executive, said : "For the population served by the RD&E, MY CARE will revolutionise their access to healthcare. What excites me the most about MY CARE is the patient portal which allows people to really begin to control their own health. I hope as many people as possible will take the chance to come along to this open day, see the new system in action and ask questions.” ”
