Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has selected Swiss Post Solutions (SPS) to deliver an electronic document management system (EDMS).

The document managing outsourcing company has chosen IMMJ Systems to deploy its MediViewer EDMS and integrate the solution with the trust’s Cerner electronic patient record (EPR).

This follows on from Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals Foundation Trust who also chose the duo in May 2020.

MediViewer provides 24/7 access to records anywhere geographically and a full, consistent and up-to-date version of patient information.

Carl Chow, CCIO at the trust, said: “We are proud to be a leading trust demonstrating a commitment to improve patient safety and the quality of clinical care whilst enabling our staff to carry out core duties more efficiently through the use of technology.‘’

After achieving HIMSS stage six by becoming a paper lite hospital, the deployment of IMMJ’s solution is seen as a key enabler for the trust to move to stage seven.

Phil Burke, chief projects officer at IMMJ Systems, said, ‘’IMMJ Systems are proud to be partnering with Kingston Hospital and SPS to deliver this project for such a forwarding thinking trust and assist them in their journey towards paperless healthcare.

“We are also delighted that IMMJ Systems’ MediViewer EDMS has again been chosen as the preferred EDMS platform via another competitive procurement, further demonstrating the change in the market, by providing a uniquely architected solution for another NHS Trust.

“This project will enable so many benefits for the trust in a number of areas, we are genuinely excited at the prospect and future successes we will jointly deliver.”

SPS in partnership with IMMJ Systems were chosen because of their experience and proven ability to collaboratively deliver challenging large-scale digital transformation projects and knowledge of the health sector.

Gary Harrold, chief executive of SPS, said: “Kingston Hospital has demonstrated innovation by leveraging technology to improve their patient experience and staff working culture and because of this SPS are proud to be a part of their digital transformation journey.

“We are committed to working together efficiently to deliver the change quickly.“
