New digital maternity system launching soon at University Hospitals Southampton
Starting from 7th June 2021 the maternity service at University Hospitals Southampton (UHS) will be introducing a new digital maternity system called BadgerNet Maternity.
This will digitise the maternity record all the way from initial antenatal booking through to recording postnatal maternity care; it will also allow women to refer themselves for maternity care (rather than via their GPs) and have access to their record via a mobile app and website. Portsmouth Hospitals University Trust went live in February 2021, and Hampshire Hospitals are going live in May 2021, leaving the Isle of Wight to go live in July 2021.
UHS will introduce this new system on 7th June 2021, and from this point onwards women wishing to receive maternity care at UHS should refer themselves through a new online portal https://www.pregnotes.net/SelfReferral/CareLocation/SHIP.
