Guernsey Chooses TrakHealth For Community

TrakHealth has been awarded the ten-year contract by the Health & Social Services Department in Guernsey for the supply of an integrated Health and Social Services electronic record in support of comprehensive health and social care services to Guernsey and Alderney.

This contract is an integral part of a major project designed to improve the way care is delivered whilst also yielding much improved health and social care information to support operational management, the quality of clinical services and the strategic planning of future health and social care delivery.

Central to the solution is the TrakCare Web-based healthcare information system from TrakHealth that delivers a fast trak to electronic patient records. TrakCare incorporates the InterSystems Ensemble rapid integration platform, enabling TrakCare modules to easily and seamlessly connect to Guernsey's existing specialist systems that include TechniData Laboratory, HSS Radiology, and GE PACs as well as new systems from JAC, CSE Servelec, and CliniSys to be delivered as part of the TrakHealth contract.

The introduction of an electronic health and social care record represents a major programme of business change and IT modernisation. It will potentially impact nearly every facet of health and social care delivery, whether provided by Health and Social Services Department staff, by clinicians working with the department, or in the private sector.

With 62, 000 people in the population, the scope of the project is comprehensive as it delivers a joined-up island-wide community health and social care service.
