Electronic Palliative and Care Coordination System (EPaCCS) and SIDer

Updated on Wednesday, 10 April 2019, 729 views

The new Electronic Palliative and Care Coordination System (EPaCCS) which is the first phase of the Somerset Integrated Digital e-Record (SIDeR) Programme, is going live on 1 April 2019. SIDeR aims to progressively modernise and integrate patient information and communication between providers throughout the county and it is starting by revising and updating the existing EPaCCS system

From 1 April 2019 practices are asked to review and refresh the current end of life records on Adastra that are transferred to the new system. This should not be an arduous task as the majority of mandatory data will be auto-populated from the EMIS record. This updating will also get users used to the new system.

Your IT lead should have received instructions about user accounts set up and configuration. There is a an EPaCCS Implementation Bulletin attached containing a training guide to help users logged in and using the new system.

The SCW IT Service Desk are also available to help configure accounts and to help if required. If you haven’t so far sent a list of users to jess.brown@nhs.net , please do this as soon as possible as your staff will be unable to use the system without licences being set up.

If you do not have the patient identifiable details for any existing Adastra End of Life records, please contact Devon Doctors Ddooh.informationteam@nhs.net , who will be able to provide this information.

The LMC agrees that this is an important first step in the essential but big job of integrating patient information and we hope practices will take part in this first initiative.
