Stockport NHS Foundation Trust in Stockport, UK, has partnered with information technology (IT) company CDW to enhance patient care at Stepping Hill Hospital.

The collaboration involves introducing new IT systems at the hospital as part of an 18-month digital transformation programme.

The programme aims to improve patient care and staff performance through the use of advanced technology while enabling quicker and more efficient access to clinical workspaces and systems.

It will involve implementing a new blood tracking system designed to improve traceability and minimise human error. 

IT systems by Cisco, io, Imprivata and Zebra are among those being implemented as part of this project.

CDW Health and Social Care chief technologist Phillipa Winter said: “The forward-thinking vision that Stockport NHS Foundation Trust harboured for integrating technology sparked genuine excitement at CDW.

“It stands as a remarkable example of harnessing technology not to substitute human efforts but to elevate and amplify their impact on day-to-day tasks.  

“This transformative approach not only empowers clinicians to extend their reach to more patients but also affords them the precious opportunity to invest additional, high-quality time in patient interactions, fostering a future where healthcare is not just efficient but deeply human-centred.”

Stepping Hill employs around 6,300 staff and serves more than 300,000 patients each year.

The hospital said it had recognised the need to replace manual processes with technology, selecting CDW as its technology partner.

Stepping Hill chief clinical information officer and clinical safety officer Holly Carr said: “We knew we needed to be smarter to maximise and optimise our existing resources.

“The new technology makes sharing devices and information more seamless and has enabled us to provide the infrastructure and digital capability to support a more agile working environment and mobile workforce across multiple care settings.”
