Electronic document management solution in Northampton
Northampton General Hospital has embarked on a major medical records digitisation project with partners IMMJ Systems that will see over 200,000 medical records scanned into the IMMJ Systems MediViewer Electronic Document Management System (EDMS).
The project is part of the Northamptonshire Group’s ambitious 10-year digital transformation plan. Its aim is to improve care provided to patients by delivering mobile clinical decision-making support to clinicians, thereby improving the flow of patients through the 800-bed hospital and by fully digitising the patient record.
The scan on demand service has been outsourced while the trust is able to utilise its existing in-house scanning service to manage the day forward scanning operation supported by IMMJ Systems.
As part of this digitisation programme, the trust is implementing the leading next-generation EDMS MediViewer from IMMJ Systems. This provides a platform to store the scanned medical records and in addition, ingest a wide range of clinical feeds using the flexibility of the MediViewer API and architecture to centralise patient information.
The MediViewer platform enables clinical and clerical users to view the complete history for each patient attending the trust, as well as being able to free text search through the record for key clinical documents utilising MediViewer SmartIndexing technology.
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 is also powered by its SmartIndexing technology that classifies information in real time enabling content to be surfaced at the click of a button.
