We have introduced Ardens to our membership practices. Ardens is a Clinical Decision Support Tool for SystmOne (the IT system used by our member practices to hold patient notes among many other functions). Ardens gives clinicians easy access to the latest evidence-based resources, promotes best practice, medicines management and patient safety, helps to upskill practice staff, improves efficiency and ensures standardised care locally.
We have an IT specialist who is
dedicated to ensuring Ardens is kept up to date and cross refers to local
policies and ‘pathway’ information. This ensures our GPs and nurses can use
national best practice and advice to fit local system working.
