Chris Fokke Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust discusses Clinical Data Capture at the point of care in practice

Chris Fokke Chief Clinical Information Officer Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust discusses Clinical Data Capture at the point of care in practice: 

  • the options and clinical benefits
  • integration into the digital patient record
  • engaging clinicians and frontline staff
  • how to maximise the benefits

In his presentation Chris stated: 

"We try to feed all of our electronic systems into the Discharge Summary"

"Next step will be smart discharge planning"

"2018, paper light is more realistic than paperless"

"My vision is every hospital bed having its own terminal. Patients engaged as well so it's a patient sentry device but is multi disciplinary so clinicians can use as well"

"Advice would be to let the EPR be clinically driven, so they see what they would like to see"

"Need to move to text analytics. Coders spend 20 mins per patient but only 5 minutes of that is actually coding"

Chris Fokke works in Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in Basingstoke. Recently he has been appointed as the Chief Clinical Information Programme Officer (CCIPO), leading on several Programme streams associated with clinical systems development in the trust.

His nursing career has been in acute Neuro-science in New Zealand and English hospitals although his first Honours degree is in Community Health Care which he applied as a District nurse in Oxford.

He has worked for 16 years in the Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases NHS Foundation Trust in Bath, a national specialist rehabilitation hospital, where he was the Director of Clinical Practice and the Nursing Professional Advisor. His role included supporting clinical teams in care pathway development and implementation and acting as an executive board member, delivering opportunities associated with care pathways and clinical models to improve patient safety and enhance the patient journey.

Chris’ second degree is an MSc in Information Technology. He is also a qualified PRINCE 2 practitioner. Applying these qualifications in the NHS meant a change in career and in 2009 Chris commenced at the Basingstoke and North Hampshire NHS Foundation Trust as a Programme manager; successfully managing the roll out of several business critical clinical systems (PAS, electronic prescribing and electronic order comms). Chris’ role is to interface, support and provide advice between the clinical- and IT function within the trust. Combining an executive clinical background with an advanced insight into IT/IS solutions has proven to be an asset in ensuring that IT is a solution in healthcare.
