About ppm+

ppm+ (Patient Pathway Manager)

Informatics stock imageppm+ (Patient Pathway Manager) is LTHT’s electronic health record, built on the latest web technology and benefitting from a programme of continuous development to deliver an agile, multi-functional EHR.

Evolved from a system originally built in 2002 to support the delivery of cancer services, ppm+ is proven in clinical settings, used by over 11,000 clinicians across the Trust to support everyday nursing, medical documentation & clinical processes. 

ppm+ is constantly evolving, with new functionality and features prioritised by our user community. On-going development is managed by a dedicated in-house team, supported by specialist suppliers using industry best practice techniques. 

Consolidating regional data

ppm+ is designed to consolidate data from disparate systems, both within LTHT and also across local organisational boundaries. This allows clinicians to view a single patient record which includes city-wide information from a number of different organisations, providing a rich, informed view of our patient’s wider needs.

Advanced functionality & features

Clinicians are able to supplement the record directly with a variety of different information data sets, including clinical notes, operative notes and nursing documents. This supports and improves clinical decision making, using functionality such as tasks, alerts and electronic whiteboards to automate reminders, reduce manual effort and save time, ultimately allowing our clinicians to focus on providing patient care.

ppm+ is also available on a mobile app, supporting provision of care at the bedside.
