We’re delighted to introduce the expert speakers featuring in our exclusive Q&A webinar on Gloucestershire NHS Trust’s journey from IT laggard to award-winning digital aspirant.
Gloucestershire Hospitals’ large-scale digital transformation programme enabled the Trust to roll out an Electronic Patient Record (EPR) system in five months, supported over 500 clinical systems and allowed 2000 people to transition to remote working, almost overnight.
Mark Hutchinson, Chief Digital and Information Officer at Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and Martin Hosken, Chief Technologist of Cloud Services at VMware will discuss how working with LIMA led to a successful digital transformation programme using VMware’s Cloud Foundation.
Mark Hutchinson joined Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Trust as the Chief Digital and Information Officer in October 2018. During his 22 years working in Acute NHS Hospitals, Mark has been involved in several ground-breaking projects delivering large scale, complex transformational projects.
Mark’s previous experience saw him implement England’s first Telemedicine system in Airedale NHS Trust, delivered electronic patient records at Salford Royal Foundation Trust (awarded Global Digital Exemplar status) and delivered the first electronic patient record at Wythenshawe Hospital.
Passionate about how well-implemented technology can improve the safety and reliability of patient care, Mark has most recently delivered the fastest UK implementation of an EPR system at Gloucestershire Hospitals.
Since becoming CDIO, he has championed investment in accelerating digital change. The success of Gloucestershire Hospitals’ digital transformation programme has accelerated the need for more agile access to systems, providing clinicians with live patient data whenever they need it and in turn ensuring that all patients receive the best care.
Their long-term aim is to provide agile and mobile computing experiences to colleagues to meet the expectations set with the implementation of their EPR, encouraging collaboration with colleagues across Gloucestershire’s health community and delivering better outcomes for all.
