Nominators Answer

Nominee's story :

Simon is our part time integration specialist who is a very much an unsung hero. Some of the key projects which he has delivered in the last 12 months alone has had a significant impact on the clinical/admin teams at ESTH. Some of these include: 1) SWL HIE and Surrey Care Record which has allowed our clinical teams to access clinical data such as past medical history and medication lists from GPs and surrounding acute organisations. ESTH is the first organisation who have succeeded in sharing pathology data with the Surrey Care Record and also has the richest data set available with the largest number of users accessing the system 2) Developing an application called Hybrid Mail to enable PODS team to manage their letter failures as part of transitioning the sending of patient letters using an external company called CFH. Working with the Clinical Applications Team, this project has delivered financial savings for the Trust and efficiencies for the administrative teams 3) Developing a scanning solution to work with the upgrade document management solution called CITO, and working with the Community Applications Team to ensure that this solution supports the end users who undertake significant scanning as part of their job role. 4) Alongside these, there are numerous system upgrade and new deployments over the course of the year. Simon is diligent and has a very keen eye for detail, both of which are pivotal in ensuring that the interfaces which the Trust have in place are robust. This often includes holding suppliers to account and making changes when required. He has successful connected up many clinical applications to iPM over the years using the Trust integration engine called Mirth Connect to ensure that departmental systems have better data quality without users having to enter data twice. Please may I nominate Simon for the unsung hero award as the work which he undertakes is really one which is not seen by most of the organisation but has a significant impact on ensuring that clinicians have timely information when needed and that our data is shared with other organisations.
