ePCR goes live in Herts and west Essex

Hertfordshire and West Essex was the last region in the Trust to go live with Siren Nova iOS ePCR on Tuesday (5 October), completing the roll out that started in March 2021.  

Siren Notification Board, the real time inbound patient information system, was also activated at Lister, Watford General and Princess Alexandra hospitals the same day. 

Within the first 24 hours, 123 ePCRs using Siren Nova were created on iPads by crews from Herts and West Essex. 

These contributed to a total 1669 ePCRs created using iPads on 5 October across all six operational sectors. 

Mark Giddens, who is based at Stevenage’s Babbage Road hub, (pictured below) was the first clinician to create an ePCR sent to Lister hospital.

Dan Phillips, Clinical Lead for ePCR, said: “It has been a privilege to be involved in developing the first Siren Nova ePCR app for iPads. I am delighted to see the many months of collaboration with our suppliers ESO and O2 Telefonica successfully come to fruition with the roll out of the Siren Nova iOS app across Herts and West Essex, the last region to go live at EEAST.  

“None of this would have been possible without the dedication and professionalism of the ePCR program team who have delivered this roll out despite many challenges, not least the COVID-19 pandemic.  

“Finally, a special thank you must go to EEAST clinicians from all areas who have come to together to directly support this project. It would not have happened without you and the support from local leaders. You should be proud of what you have achieved. Thank you!”
