London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust has chosen Hyland Healthcare’s OnBase content management platform to enable healthcare teams to capture, store and manage clinical information on the move.

The move will allow clinicians at the hospital to access and upload patient data from any location via the cloud.

Hyland offers a range of capabilities for healthcare organisations that enable clinicians to securely view, update and share both clinical documents and medical imaging from its cloud-based OnBase solution.

Its contract with Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) will see OnBase integrated with the trust’s electronic patient record system, which is supplied by US vendor Epic.

As a result, hospital care teams will be able to capture photos and videos, fill out electronic forms, record digital signatures and perform a variety of other content management tasks from a computer or mobile device from any location with an internet connection.

Amongst the features that will be available to GOSH clinicians is OnBase Patient Window, which offers a single location where all patient medical information, including medical history and images, is presented.

Dr Shankar Sridharan, consultant paediatric cardiologist and CCIO at Great Ormond Street, called the platform a “game-changer.”

“The OnBase Patient Window allows us to create a truly functioning archive with a seamless narrative of imaging to guide and optimise patient care,” Dr Sridharan added.

OnBase by Hyland is scheduled to go live at Great Ormond Street Hospital in April 2019.

It signals the latest in a series of business moves by the US firm as it increases its presence in the UK healthcare industry.

Hyland Healthcare was launched in October 2017, following the company’s acquisition of printer maker Lexmark’s enterprise content management business in May the same year.

Meanwhile in February of this year, the company further enhanced its clinical toolbox after signing an agreement to acquire Allscripts’ OneContent business.

Susan DeCathelineau, vice president of global healthcare sales and services at Hyland, added: “Great Ormond Street Hospital’s new solutions, combined with their existing technology suite, creates a technology platform ready for the modern healthcare landscape. It gives practitioners the tools and information they need to best serve patients.”
