The South Eastern Trust serves a population of approximately 345,000, so legacy data was extensive, held across several systems. Data migrated ranged from specialist audiology pathways to social care and mental health referrals, cancer, cardiology and respiratory pathways, to the complete, legacy PAS system data, as well as over 57 million lab results.
Egress Group’s healthcare division has been working with encompass since Spring of 2022, contracted to manage the entire programme’s end-to-end data migration requirements. As the roll out progresses Egress will be working with each Trust in turn. Belfast Trust is next, due to go-live in June 24.
Once complete the project will transform care across the country by creating a single, integrated health and social care record for citizens. This will provide a holistic view of a patient, resulting in more informed clinical decision making and, therefore, better outcomes for individuals.
