There are a few important training modules that you will need to complete. These can all be completed at home before you start and you can register and work through the modules on the link below
If you have any problems or have any queries please contact:
ppm+ is the engine delivering the LTHT electronic patient record, and will enable selected patient data to be shared safely across service providers both within the Trust and externally. Wards will utilise the engine to display inpatients on their eWhiteboard.
Bluespier includes eDAN (electronic Discharge Advice Notice) and is a discharge summary program used by wards to electronically outline and record an inpatient episode. This includes all medication administered during admission, prescriptions on discharge and documentation for the GP.
epro is the Trusts digital dictation system enabling clinicians to dictate letters and annotations directly into the system instead of the previous analogue devices. This can also be accessed through ppm+ provided you have access.
OrderComms (ICE) system is a paper-light IT system for requesting tests/examinations and viewing results. This can also be accessed by ppm+ provided you have access.
PatientCentre is an application to record, view and edit datain our archive of patients’ details. For example, you can admit/discharge/transfer (ADT) patients, update waiting lists and book appointments. ADT is vital to ensuring a ward’s eWiteboard is accurate and up to date.
eMeds (Medchart) is an electronic clinical system that is used to prescribe, validate and administer medication to patients. It has an integrated eDAN which replaces the Bluespier eDAN. eMeds has been implemented in some areas of LTHT. Everyone has access to a patient view of eMeds via ppm+, but to use eMeds you must complete the e-learning package ‘eMeds (Medchart) & ppm+ eDAN for prescribers’, which can be accessed through the Training Interface link.
To find out which wards are already live with eMeds, please go to the following link:
