Royal Orthopaedic Hospital starts utilising digital form system

The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (ROH) has started using electronic forms to help ease the burden on administrative staff.

The trust is using a NDL’s FX platform to quickly create a series of eforms, enabling it to simplify the collection of information and alleviate administrative pressures on its staff.

A lateral flow test submission was developed in just two days. This has enabled the trust’s 1,500 members of staff to submit their results in real time, which can then be easily shared with NHS England every three days.

The e-form template has also been adapted by the HR department in the creation of two Covid-19 risk assessment forms.

Future projects include a staff feedback form, enabling staff and patients to give direct feedback to a member of staff, which will be automatically shared to boost staff morale.

Gavin Newman, digital programme manager at the trust, said: “We’re pleased to have embarked on our digital journey with NDL.

“Having only worked with them for a short while, NDL has been on hand to help and support us every step of the way. NDL’s FX technology has enabled us to capture data securely and reduce our paper consumption greatly. We look forward to continuing our relationship with NDL to develop future projects.”
