Full Time
Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (BTFHT) is a highly digitised Trust with almost no paper in clinical areas. We implemented the Oracle Health / Cerner Millennium Electronic Patient Record (EPR) on a shared domain with Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust in 2017 and subsequently rolled out the Maternity module in March 2022, including Feta link which allows immediate and remote access to a patient's electrocadriogam output, across BTHFT. We are now now working to bring Airedale General Hospital Foundation Trust onto the shared domain to use the EPR.

Main duties of the job

The jobholder will be responsible for leading the ongoing design and development of the maternity modue, ensuring it continues to meet the needs of the maternity service at BTHFT and AGHFT. This will include orginating, developing and managing Change Requests which could require in depth analysis of current working practices, process mapping and policy analysis. The post holder is expected to develop a strong relationship with the Maternity department and with the EPR supplier Oracle Health to design and support new and existing build, including testing and go live activities. As workstream lead for the maternity module the post holder is expected to take the lead on all maternity related EPR changes, policy and service delivery, including live issue resolution.
