Integration in Action: The HIMSS Interoperability Showcase
Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals
Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust were formed in April 2002 following the merger of Sandwell Healthcare NHS Trust and City Hospital NHS Trust. With the transfer of Sandwell’s community health services in the April 2011, the Trust now provides a wide range of acute and community services to a population of 540,000. These services are carried out from a number of sites, including the General Hospital in West Bromwich, City Hospital in Birmingham, Rowley Regis Community Hospital and Leasowes Intermediate Care Centre.
A provider of health IT services for both the public and private sectors—including public health agencies, hospitals, physician practices, and pharmaceutical companies—Ruvos’ offerings include cloud migration, project management, data integration, and cyber security.
The potential to achieve efficiencies in pharmacy services has been well documented. 50% of patients do not take medicines as intended, 5-8% of unplanned admissions are due to medication issues and £300m of medicines are wasted each year: A report from the Department of Health3 highlights the challenges created for both patients and professionals by the lack of formal communication channels between hospitals and community pharmacies.
Kettering General Hospital
Kettering General Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is a medium-sized acute general hospital, serving a population of approximately 300,000 within Northamptonshire, UK. The Trust has been providing services since 1897 and reached Foundation Trust status in 2008. As well as the main hospital site, the Trust runs a wide range of outpatient clinics in Corby, Wellingborough and Irthlingborough.
