New digital documentation system to be implemented across Wales

A new nursing digital documentation service is expected to roll out across Wales. 

Nurses will soon be able to use a mobile tablet to help perform their assessments in adult inpatient settings with the hope the new system will be more time efficient and improve accuracy. 

The project, led by NHS Wales and funded by the Welsh Government, will see nurses replacing paper documentation with digital ones. As part of the new digital implementation, a clinical nursing informatics lead is now employed in each health board. 

Hospitals in Hywel Dda University Health Board, followed by Swansea Bay University Health Board and Velindre University NHS Trust have been the first to adopt the new system.
