Cambric Systems strengthens NHS Highland’s e-health programme



Healthcare patient data software solutions supplier Cambric Systems has announced that The National Treatment Centre (NTC) Highland has deployed the Morse Electronic Patient Record (EPR). 

The brand-new facility, located in Inverness, opened in April 2023 and is one of 10 treatment centres funded by the Scottish Government.

The facility will use Cambric’s digital solution and interactive m-Forms capabilities to strengthen NHS Highland’s e-health programme, helping to deliver seamless multi-disciplinary patient care across the region.

NHS Highland decided to build on its long-standing relationship with Cambric to bring consistency and continuity of care to the newly-launched National Treatment Centre and establish a more efficient, paper-light approach to storing, accessing and updating its patient records.

Fiona Grist, NTC Clinical Nurse Manager, said:

“The NTC was created primarily to help reduce waiting times for specialist eye and orthopaedic care and the deployment of Morse technology is certainly helping us to achieve that goal.

“The solution allows us to work differently and more efficiently, streamlining our processes and providing a clear view of complete patient pathways.”

Sarah Slavin, eHealth Projects Manager added

“Morse provides us with an intelligent digital platform that flows, is easy to read and can be accessed at any time – staff don’t need to spend time waiting or trawling through hand-written notes, they just tap on to the electronic device with their ID badge and the information is there in real time.

“As a result, we can now deliver a digital multi-disciplinary service that guarantees a smoother, faster, far more satisfying experience for patients.”

Staff in every discipline, from recovery and consultants to general nursing staff and Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) such as Occupational and Physiotherapists, rely on Morse for online access to the same patient information.

Now, patients requiring treatment from multiple disciplinary teams no longer need to repeat themselves when speaking to different specialists.

This minimises patient frustration and waiting times between appointments.

Garry Sherriff, MD at Cambric added:

“We give forward-thinking organisations like NHS Highland the flexibility they need to grow and manage a constantly changing healthcare landscape.

“With the launch of the NTC in Inverness, we look forward to extending our partnership, helping to realise their ambition to deliver joined-up, state-of-the-art ophthalmology and orthopaedic care to the people in the north of Scotland.”
