Leading UK Children's Hospital Uses Clarizen to Launch New Electronic Patient Record System, Reducing Overhead Costs and Setting New Standards for Projects

Alder Hey Children's Hospital and National Health Services Foundation Achieves New Levels of Transparency and Collaboration for Operational Success

SAN MATEO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/07/14 -- Clarizen, the leader in enterprise work collaboration software, today announced Alder Hey Children's Hospital has increased their productivity, performance and transparency by implementing Clarizen v6. As one of the largest children's hospitals in the United Kingdom and Europe, Alder Hey has set a new standard for how projects should be run.

Alder Hey is one of Europe's largest children's hospitals, caring for over 270,000 children's outpatient appointments each year. Alder Hey leads research into children's medicine, infection, inflammation and oncology. As part of its commitment to innovation, six months ago the hospital decided to implement a new electronic health record system. The project will create a central Electronic Patient Record across the hospital and community services.

Since the introduction of Clarizen, Alder Hey has greatly reduced the overhead required to plan and track actions associated with the new electronic health record system rollout. The enterprise work collaboration software has also helped Alder Hey manage the project to budget. Most of all, Alder Hey has benefitted from Clarizen's ability to enable productivity and performance through transparency.

Robert Forde, who joined Alder Hey to lead the endeavor, has identified several high-impact aspects of the Clarizen solution that have a great effect on the success of their initiative:

  • Social collaboration, which enabled rapid onboarding of team members and a high level of user adoption. Clarizen automatically captures and organizes communications in a social stream, both from the discussion groups and email threads.
  • The cloud-based platform, which drives an unprecedented level of global alignment and visibility across Alder Hey and US-based technology suppliers.
  • The reporting functionality, which provides stakeholders a weekly, accurate overview of the state of the project.

"The level of transparency Clarizen provides is tremendously helpful. We can now put a simple link on our Intranet site, which lets anyone check on project status," said Robert Forde. "Teams can immediately see the `red' activities that have issues that require attention and resolution, and the 'green' activities which are moving forward according to plan. It is generating a confidence in and support for the project that is further enabling success -- and setting a new standard for how projects at Alder Hey could be run."

Clarizen will also showcase the Alder Hey success story at the National Health Service Confederation Exhibition in Liverpool, June 4th - 6th 2014.

The Work Graph™
The way most companies work is broken. First we build work groups, and then we engage in conversations, which may become actions and, ideally, these actions become deliverables. Each of these typically live in disconnected "islands" of activity, managed by different systems. Clarizen is different in that it connects these islands into a "work graph" that is organically created through the act of getting work done. The work graph enables collaboration that drives results, turning every organization into a high-performance, real-time operation.
