Guy’s and St Thomas’ sign contract with Radar Healthcare
Radar Healthcare has won a competitive tender to supply Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust with risk management and compliance software, which will help consolidate existing separate software solutions.
By moving to a single risk management system the trust will make the working lives of its staff easier, while also improving safety for both employees and patients.
The trust will deploy Radar Healthcare to Guy’s Hospital, St Thomas’ Hospital, Evelina London Children’s Hospital, Royal Brompton Hospital, and Harefield Hospital. It will also be introduced to the trust’s community services in Lambeth and Southwark.
Ashley Parrott, deputy director of quality and assurance for Guy’s and St Thomas’, said: “We currently have four separate risk management software systems across the whole trust.
“We look forward to working with Radar Healthcare to deliver technology which could integrate seamlessly across all of our hospitals and community sites and that can be designed to suit our requirements.”
As well as consolidating the four separate systems currently being used, Radar Healthcare’s solution will also align with the new electronic health record system which is due to start in April 2023.
The platform is configurable to new processes and frameworks, meaning it can help ensure the trust is complying with the Learn From Patient Safety Events (LFPSE) service – of which Radar was the first organisation to be certified as compliant in supplying suitable software for – and it is ready and resilient for the Patient Safety Incident Response Framework (PSIRF).
Paul Johnson, CEO of Radar Healthcare, said: “The trust didn’t want a rigid, off-the-shelf system. Instead, it wanted a platform and a partnership that could respond to its specific needs and enable them to transform processes without restriction.
“We’re looking forward to working closely with the team at Guy’s and St Thomas’ and supporting the transformation of their risk management and compliance processes.”
