New patient administration system

New patient administration system launched at The Holly Private Hospital 

The Holly Private Hospital has launched a new patient administration system. The newly upgraded web-based APAS booking system went live at The Holly Private Hospital yesterday morning, Monday 15th, February 2016.

Staff and consultants across the hospital have been attending a training programme during the last month to prepare for the introduction of the new technology.

Speaking about the new development, Luis Pedro, Director of Services and Patient Experience and Aspen Healthcare Group Hospitality and Services Lead said:

“Our new patient administration system is more patient centric and integrates better with other technology. It pulls together many of the patient administration and clinical systems we currently use into one streamlined digital system. For example, consultants will now be able to view electronic patient medical records during the consultation, resulting in a much more streamlined experience for our patients.

We would ask our patients to please bear with us during this transition period while the new system beds in. You may experience a short delay at our reception areas or while on the phone when booking in for your appointment/admission, while our staff get accustomed to the new system.

However we’re confident that our new patient administration system will bring about real benefits for our patients including better management of patient  information, faster processing of referrals, admissions and discharges, and improvements to the efficiency and management of patient care.”

The Holly Private Hospital is committed to a programme of continuous investment to improve facilities and services and to bring patients the best possible healthcare in the most comfortable surroundings.

Recent developments have included building a new physiotherapy and diagnostics reception area, a chemotherapy suite, a day care unit for day surgery as well as a new patient relations centre.
