Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (NNUH) have gone live with CareMotive’s Spine Message Handler (SMH). SMH is being used to connect NNUH’s McKesson PAS with Choose & Book. Previously NNUH had a Spine broker system which entailed manually transcribing slot and booking information to and from the PAS. Using SMH, NNUH have been able to directly integrate with Choose and Book, hence saving significant amounts of time and helping to avoid transcription errors.
Choose and Book is just one of the Spine message sets that SMH supports; the others including Electronic Prescription Service, Birth Notifications, and Personal Demographics. SMH is also accredited as a PDS Spine Mini Service Provider.
