Supporting hospices to provide more joined-up healthcare
Death is an emotional and often difficult experience for all involved, but by using technology to join up care and share information we can help hospices allow people to make decisions about how their care is carried out - allowing them dignity in death.
We work closely with 30 hospices across the UK, delivering the technology required to support better and safer palliative care. With our clinical experience, specialist knowledge and technical expertise, we’re helping hospice teams ensure that everyone can live well towards the end of their lives.
Helping hospice teams support patients and their families
The hospice care sector supports over 200,000 people with terminal and life-limiting illnesses in the UK each year, providing individual care plans that suit each patient’s wishes and needs. By allowing hospice teams to access relevant patient data from other organisations and sectors, EMIS Web makes it easy to provide tailored, person-centred care that provides all forms of support to patients and their families. Patients’ wishes can be recorded and viewed quickly and simply, ensuring their care proceeds in the way they wish it to.
Ensuring everyone’s needs and wishes are met
Our system allows you to view all the details you need to meet not only the physical requirements of your patients but their social, emotional and wider holistic needs too. Hospice care often extends to those who are close to the patient during the bereavement period after the patient has died. Using EMIS Web has helped East Cheshire Hospice to easily record, update and access crucial patient information, reducing the need to repeatedly ask patients or their relatives difficult questions and improving their quality of care by ensuring their needs and wishes are met.
