eHospital is our award winning digital transformation that is enabling our staff at Addenbrooke’s and The Rosie hospitals to use the latest technology to deliver consistently high quality care to our patients.

Like many other NHS trusts, we previously relied on paper patient records and multiple aged IT systems with limited integration and capability.

With a clinical desire for data-driven care and improvements to safety using advanced digital technology, all clinical areas across both of our hospitals have been completely transformed with the introduction of eHospital in 2014.

Benefits to patients

Patients don’t stay in hospital for longer than they need to No more waiting for paper records to arrive
Virtual fracture clinic saves patients time and expenses Barcoded wristbands and medications improving safety

A digital revolution

Combining a ‘built by hospital staff for hospital staff’ fully integrated Electronic Patient Record (EPR) with a complete refresh of the computing estate, and the introduction of integrated mobile devices, we have successfully moved away from paper-based and manual clinical processes to fully digital ways of recording and accessing information to provide high quality patient care.


Cambridge University Hospitals’ current digital maturity is the highest of any of the trusts visited.

National Advisory Group report on Health Information Technology in England, chaired by Professor Robert Wachter (September 2016)

The first-of-its-kind transformation in an NHS Trust, eHospital has revolutionised the way our clinical teams now care for their patients. Having access to comprehensive electronic health records, at the touch of a button, enables our staff to view and record all clinical information in one place, in real-time, wherever and whenever they need it. All clinical teams across our hospitals see the same information about a patient in our EPR, which is vital to patient care and safety. Our patients can also access their information using their patient portal – MyChart – and we are able to digitally share data, in realtime, with other healthcare providers locally, nationally and internationally!

HIMSS EMRAM Stage 6 accreditation

In 2015, following an inspection from the Healthcare Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS) to assess digital adoption and use of electronic systems for clinical care, CUH was validated against Stage 6 of the international Electronic Medical Records Adoption Model (EMRAM) – achieved within a year of Trust-wide electronic patient record implementation.

In October 2018, CUH became the first in the UK to successfully attest against the Stage 6 standards, which were made considerably harder earlier that year.

This accolade puts us among an elite group of leading hospitals and medical centres across the world that use electronic patient record (EPR) systems as a tool to support clinicians in providing high quality patient care. Prior to the introduction of our Epic EPR, CUH was an unofficially rated HIMSS EMRAM Stage 1 Trust with very limited digital capability and clinical adoption.

CUH’s ambition is to become the first UK trust to achieve HIMSS EMRAM Stage 7 – the highest rating in the world.
