Daisy Hill Hospital has hosted a visit from the Deputy Permanent Secretary of the Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety to showcase how technology is being used to help improve services. daisyhill7Deborah McNeilly met with staff and saw first-hand demonstrations of the range of innovative developments that the hospital has introduced in recent years. Welcoming, the Deputy Secretary, Southern Health and Social Care Trust Chair Roberta Brownlee said, “We are very proud that our Acute hospital network – Daisy Hill and Craigavon Area – for four consecutive years has been ranked as a Top UK hospital and we are committed to continuous improvement in our services to ensure that we maintain our consistent high standards. “We have an ongoing development programme in Daisy Hill and this includes a wide range of innovative technologies which we were delighted to show the Deputy Secretary. “Technology has been a key enabler for our ongoing modernisation programme within the Southern Trust, particularly in strengthening the links between our two acute hospitals, Craigavon and Daisy Hill, in improving quality and safety of care, and in enhancing the patient experience,” she added. The visit included demonstrations of; the PARIS Community Information System which is providing a fuller profile of each patient in a way that can be shared between community and hospital services; the Telepresence Robot, the first to be used in a UK hospital giving intensive care specialists in Craigavon the ability to remotely assess Daisy Hill patients; and the very first paediatric simulators to be used in Northern Ireland to train staff in managing acutely ill babies and infants.
