TPP has signed a contract with Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust (RDaSH) to deploy the Community Hospital and Mental Health modules across its sites.

The contract was signed at the Tickhill Road Hospital site on Tuesday 28th March. The new contract means the trust will be deploying two further SystmOne modules in addition to its existing SystmOne Community and Palliative Care modules. Present at the signing was John Connolly, Clinical Director, TPP and Paul Wilkin, Finance Director and Deputy Chief Executive, RDaSH.

The decision to deploy further SystmOne modules comes as part of the trust’s strategic transformation programme, which aims to create more time to care for patients, enhance efficiency and drive digital maturity.

Richard Banks, Director of Health Informatics, RDaSH said:

“The trust’s objective is to improve the support that IT provides to the delivery of care and our selection process was influenced by the largely positive attitude of current users of SystmOne. The main benefit of deploying these modules is the creation of consistent and accurate Electronic Patient Records across the range of services RDaSH provides and the ability for the trust to provide whole person care more effectively.”

John Connolly said:

“We are delighted to be working more closely with Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust as they continue to exploit the potential to use SystmOne to help them achieve their aspiration to continuously improve the quality of their services. With more than 3,000 staff working from 240 different locations, they expect to benefit from truly integrated care pathways to support their patients in the community or in community hospitals and those with mental health problems and learning disabilities.”

RDaSH plans to phase in the implementation of the SystmOne modules across a number of services during the second half of this year, with number of users expected to rise from 1,565 up to 3,000.
