Health care deal

Have your say

Healthcare IT expert CSE Healthcare Systems has clinched its first contract in the acute care market.

The company, part of Eckington-based CSE Global UK, is supplying its Oceano hospital patient management system to the emergency and casualty departments at Royal Cornwall Hospital and West Cornwall Hospital.

Oceano keeps track of what happens with patients from when they enter the department to when they are discharged and tracks their movements from details supplied using interactive whiteboards.

The system also collects data on the type of ailments treated as well as the ordering of medical consumables.

Royal Cornwall Hospital Trust consultant, Toby Slade, said: “Modern IT systems play an important part in delivering safe, high quality care to our patients.

“We have looked carefully at a number of systems to find the right one capable of meeting our needs and are looking forward to reaping the benefits we expect Oceano to bring.”

CSE’s Alistair Eaton said: “In winning the contract with Royal Cornwall Hospitals we have taken another major step along the road to become a leading provider of systems to the Acute sector.

“We are rapidly becoming a recognised force in the hospital systems market and not just a supplier of mental health and community health systems.”
