Liverpool implement Bluespier Trust-wide as part of Aintree merger

Bluespier has been kept as system of choice for orthopaedic trauma, virtual fracture clinics and theatre scheduling as longstanding customer Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust merges with Aintree University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

Following the successful forming of Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and discussions across clinical teams on best practice, Bluespier software is now used to manage orthopaedic virtual fracture clinics, trauma cases and elective theatre scheduling across all three hospital sites. This is in conjunction with the organisation’s EPR system.

The already well-used Bluespier Trauma Board has moved from the Royal Liverpool University Hospital site to Aintree University Hospital to manage the orthopaedic trauma cases that require admission via the regional trauma unit.

Bluespier Virtual Fracture Clinic has been extended across to Aintree University Hospital to provide a streamlined approach to managing fracture patients across Merseyside.

Broadgreen Hospital continues to utilise Bluespier’s elective orthopaedic waiting list and scheduling functionality to support it receiving all orthopaedic elective cases across the Trust from late November.

Nearly 100 staff across the Trust were trained by the Bluespier training team to ensure staff across all three sites were confident in using Bluespier as part of their care delivery. All training, software configurations and set up was completed in just 10 working days.

Stuart van Rooyen, Managing Director of Bluespier, said: “We are delighted to see these two organisations merge into one, streamlined and effective NHS Trust which will give patients in Merseyside a consistent and cohesive care journey.

“The Trust merger deadlines were incredibly time-sensitive so we knew we had to deliver an effective configuration and training programme in a very short timescale.

“We are proud to be ongoing software partners with the organisation in trauma, theatres and outpatients and look forward to continuing our strong relationship with managers, clinicians and administrative staff.”
