Global Digital Exemplar

We have been identified as one of 16 acute providers to become an NHS Global Digital Exemplar site

A programme of work has started which aims to further digitise our organisation to a global standard and become a reference site for other care providers.

This is a two-year change programme which involves four main themes and more than 37 projects, specifically chosen by staff. There are other digital improvement projects which will be running in parallel.


The GDE Programme is not just about upgrading and introducing new technology, it is about replicable service change which is centred around:


  • Improving patient quality safety
  • Improving reliability
  • Increasing operational effectiveness and efficiency
  • Improving the patient experience


What's happening?

  • elderly couple, holding hands, sat on chairs Delirium and dementia projectIntroduction of a gold standard, electronic assessment tool embedded in the Electronic Patient Record to screen at risk patients for possible delirium and undiagnosed dementia. For patients and their families this will mean faster diagnosis and quicker treatment, together with earlier discharge from hospital and less chance of readmission.
  • Speech recognition software project Speech recognition software projectNew speech recognition software for clinicians to dictate information directly into clinical systems will be piloted in five areas from September to December.
  • male patient in bed being examined by a Dr. Credit: Mike Robinson Hospital Acquired Thrombosis (HAT) projectA new electronic HAT risk assessment document for patients will go live August 2017 on the Electronic Patient Record (EPR). This aims to ensure all patients have the necessary HAT assessments, guide decision making, help prevent more cases of HAT and reduce the number of patient deaths from thrombosis.
