Major medical records digitisation project underway
Kettering General Hospital has embarked on a major medical records digitisation project with System C, IMMJ Systems and SPS, with over 220,000 medical records securely scanned into the IMMJ Systems MediViewer Electronic Document Management System.
The project is part of the trust’s ambitious 10-year digital transformation plan, working in partnership with EPR supplier System C. Its aim is to improve care provided to patients by delivering mobile clinical and decision-making support to clinicians, by improving the flow of patients through the 600-bed hospital and by fully digitising the patient record.
As part of this digitisation programme, the trust is implementing the leading next-generation Electronic Document Management System (EDMS) MediViewer from IMMJ Systems.
The MediViewer EDMS software integrates seamlessly with System C’s Careflow EPR to provide clinical-context launching of the digitised record. The tightly integrated platform enables clinical and clerical users to view the complete history for each patient attending the trust, as well as being able to search through the record for key clinical documents via the MediViewer SmartIndexing technology.
Swiss Post Solutions (SPS) is in turn contracted to digitise all active patient records for the trust.
The combined solutions will provide instantaneous access to scanned medical records via the EPR safely and securely. The speed and intuitive design of the MediViewer EDMS means that simple but rich features will enable clinical users to easily find the key documentation needed at the point of care, especially as MediViewer not only OCRs all ingested information (scanned or born digital) but applies its SmartIndexing technology over the top, classifying information so it can be found via a single click of a button.
