The Tablets ‘Treatment’ from Vodafone UK is proving to be the perfect prescription to improve efficiency and patient care at NHS Blackpool
Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Vodafone UK have announced that 400 of the Trust’s Community Services staff will be equipped with mobile tablet devices to securely access patient records, corporate email and information at point of care.
The roll out comes after a successful pilot indicated staff could save up to an hour a day in reduced travel and administration using the devices and highlighted how patient care could also be improved. Following the roll out of the 400 devices, the Trust also plans to expand the scope to include the rest of its 900 community-based clinicians across Blackpool and North Lancashire.
