What is Project Ogham? Pronunciation: Ogham = “Oh-um” or ”O-um” Project Ogham is the Electronic Health Record Project. Project Ogham is the foundation to the new children’s hospital being the first truly digital hospital in the country.
Meet the CxIO Team
At CHI we now have a team of four senior leaders from pharmacy, nursing, HSCP and medical whose main role is to make sure that clinicians have a say in all the digital systems going into the new hospital. Although, they have no superpowers or extra money to hand out, they can be helpful to any colleague who is interested in, or would like to understand a little more about, digital ways of working in the current CHI hospitals or the work going on in preparation for our new hospital. Their main focus is on Project Ogham which is the project dealing with the full range of digital systems going into this new hospital and in particular the new electronic health record (Epic).
Please feel free to contact them with any questions/queries you might have.

CHI Digital Health Programme
The CHI Digital Health Programme is transforming patient care across the CHI network. This is called Project Ogham. One key way this transformation will occur is by introducing the EPIC system on Day 1. All staff will be trained on how to use this system several weeks before the go-live date.
What is Epic?
Epic is a comprehensive electronic health record (EHR) system that is used by hospitals and healthcare organisations around the world. It provides clinicians with access to all of a patient's medical information in one place, including their medical history, medications, allergies, and test results. There are many modules within EPIC this week we will focus on Beacon.
