Hive is MFT's Trust-wide Electronic Patient Record (EPR) system. Alongside our innovative online patient portal MyMFT, Hive is ensuring that we provide better, more consistent healthcare wherever our patients are treated.

Hive is the biggest digital transformation we’ve seen at MFT. Powered by tried and tested Epic software, Hive means so much more than updating to a new digital system, it means wide-spread change and improvement that will see benefits for our patients and staff for many years to come.

What Hive means for patients

As a large and complex Trust, we understand that our patients may potentially receive care at different clinical services across multiple hospital locations. By bringing all IT and patient record systems together, we can provide a joined up, better healthcare experience wherever patients are treated.

Since Hive went live in September 2022, staff have adopted new, digital ways of working whilst continuing to provide the best care for our patients. Positive impacts so far include:

  • Access to a single patient record across this Trust is improving standards of services at all hospitals
  • Patients no longer have to repeat the same information to different members of staff
  • Staff have been able to spend more time caring for patients as information is at their fingertips

To reflect on some of the key Hive activities that have taken place across the Trust since the EPR went live, we recently launched our Hive Insights and Benefits report for 2022/23. Click here to read the report and find out more about how Hive is improving the way we work.
