BT innovation helps Humber NHS Foundation Trust people spend more time with patients

Assuring the highest quality care

BT is providing an end-to-end mobile solution for Humber NHS Foundation Trust that offers Wi-Fi, 3G and 4G connectivity. It integrates with the trust’s existing electronic patient record system and incorporates innovative workforce and work flow management software from TotalMobile.

Replacing paper records, the new mobile solution ensures clinicians have the most up-to-date information at their fingertips whether in the office, on the go, or at the patient’s home. It streamlines the trust’s existing processes, reducing the need to return to base, saving time and money travelling, and allowing more time to be spent on patient care.

BannerThis mobile service allows our staff to gain instant secure access to the most up-to-date information stored on our electronic patient record system.”
- Adrian Snarr, Director of Finance, Infrastructure and Informatics, Humber NHS Foundation Trust
