St George’s NHS Trust has bought 6PM’s electronic document management and paper tracking system.

The document management project includes the implementation of 6PM’s web based Intelligent File and Inventory Tracking software supported by Radio Frequency Identify tags.

EMC’s Documentum XCP enterprise wide EDM platform will provide the trust with a vendor neutral archive to store medical images and to share medical records with GPs, patients and other healthcare organisations.

The clinical user interface for the EDM will be provided by Fortrus’ Mobius product, to be used on the trust workstations and iPad devices.

Mobius allows users to access the entire patient history across a chronological timeline and allow clinicians to search for and view data by attendance, document type, date or speciality.

6PM has integrated its physical file tracking solution and EMC Documentum databases to provide a fully integrated system, providing a view for clinicians of what is held digitally and what is still held on paper in the records store.

The company has also partnered with ScanDox to establish an in-house scanning bureau.

St George’s chief information officer John-Jo Campbell said the best of breed EDM platform, “provides the trust with strong capability for delivering workflow solutions to drive efficiencies and provides full vendor neutral archive and image sharing capability, which meets the trust IT strategy.”

St. George’s is also using the Praim Compact Dual Core C9010 integrated with Imprivata OneSign to optimise its virtual computing environment.

“To ensure the highest quality of care possible for the more than a million patients we serve each year, it is critical that our staff are able to quickly access clinical systems and patient information in a busy environment,” explained Campbell.

“This presented a challenge because clinicians are constantly moving between computers, shared workstations, patient rooms and wards.

“With this solution from Praim and Imprivata, we are able to deliver secure, personalised desktops at the point of care, via the user’s NHS smartcard.”

OneSign enables ‘no click access’ to patient data by allowing care providers to authenticate once using two-factors, then tap their smartcards to log in and out of applications on virtual desktops that follow them throughout their shifts.
