Electronic patient record (EPR) system
Our leading Electronic Patient Record (EPR) system is used throughout secondary health care services, operating within mental health, child health and community care settings, to manage administrative and clinical processes.
The system interoperates easily with other social care and health care systems, and we can tailor the system to your organisation’s specific needs.

Benefits of an EPR system
EPR empowers community, mental and child health providers to improve their outcomes, by providing a holistic picture of each person. The system supports the vision to hold one integrated, electronic health record (EHR) for each person, to make it possible to deliver the highest quality and most efficient healthcare service.
- Centralised electronic health records: EPR holds detailed information about a person’s health including medication, inpatient appointments, test and x-ray results and their medical history, which is quick and simple to access when required.
- Full integration with other systems and software: Significantly enhance care quality, clinical safety, and a patient’s experience with full integration to your existing processes and systems. Care administration is efficient, with reduced operational costs and improved outcomes.
- Access via apps, modules, portals, and mobile: Flexible ways to connect secondary care, GP, and social care systems enables practitioners at every stage of the care-giving process to see details of a person’s previous treatments without delay. With more access to information from healthcare, social care, and public sector systems all in one place, you can see the bigger picture and make decisions from a holistic viewpoint.
- Mobile data updates: EPR helps you to transform the way in which your teams provide healthcare, by enabling practitioners to update patient care records wherever they are. Our mobile applications provide real-time patient information and alerts at appropriate times, enabling faster, safer decision-making at the point of care.
- Powerful reporting: EPR also provides best practice assessments, workflows, and care pathways to free up your time from administrative tasks and focus on the individual’s care.
- Individual access: The person receiving services can manage their own healthcare better with access to their own information. It is also easy to share this information with other providers within social and primary care, further enhancing care for the individual and really making a difference to their life.

Modules of our EPR software
eObs software provides you with a tool to digitally record and manage clinical and care observations and sustain high quality and safe care on inpatient wards and throughout your community and mental health care services. You can work more smartly, removing the need for written records and charts, which lets practitioners spend more time with patients, improve care and safety and save time and money.
Electronic Prescribing and Medicines Administration (ePMA)
ePMA software helps to ensure that people receive the correct medication at the right time. You can manage prescriptions and medication digitally and reduce the risk of prescribing incorrect medication, allowing you to increase best practice and reduce costs. The module works in collaboration with EPR, providing an overarching, real-time view of each person, with prescription details and other information held together across relevant services and throughout a person’s entire healthcare journey.

Other areas of care we support with software
We have one patient record; no matter if we are treating a podiatry patient or a mental health patient, we have a single view of a patient's needs.
We now have a single system across both our trusts and have brought our patient records together as we align our working practices and processes in our partnership. We have already seen staff benefit from no longer having to dig through paper records and spend hours searching through legacy systems. With this improved flow of information between the trusts, patients stand to gain improved access to services and a better treatment experience.
I can complete my work no matter where I am, without signal.
It's completely changed the way that we document within community nursing services, which enables us to provide better quality care.
We can complete all our notes within the patient's property… so there's no bringing back paper, there's no filing and it reduces the fact that staff have to return back to the office in their working day.
It’s better for your time management, you know that when you go in to see a patient, that you've done everything before you leave.
It’s just changed everything. It takes stress off me, when I finish at the end of the day, I have actually finished. It’s took a lot of pressure off my job role.
It's hugely important that we can give staff the time that they need to do their job within their contracted hours, not having to work additional hours just to keep up. Rio Mobilise enables us to do that.
Patients benefit because the healthcare professionals that they are seeing have access to up to date information in the home with the patient at the time.
