Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust has chosen Hyland’s OnBase to digitise and manage its clinical documents.

The OnBase platform, supplied by Hyland, consolidates existing documents stored in disparate areas into one repository. It’s hoped this will optimise workflow and performance across the trust.

The platform will deliver content to clinicians and staff by integrating with the trust’s £108m Epic electronic patient record, due to go live in March 2022.

OnBase will further support the improvement of medical data management and reduce operational costs.

The trust has also selected Hyland’s PACSGear Video-Touch 4k solution with Hyland’s video and image enablement workflow (VIEW) for Epic bringing together industry-leading, standards-based technology.

Using VIEW, specialty departments, such as endoscopy, can capture images and video into OnBase then deliver it to clinicians through the enterprise viewer within Epic.

Lucy Barette, EPR programme director at Frimley Health, said: “We are very much looking forward to using OnBase, which will seamlessly integrate with our Epic EPR to create an interoperable platform, where our existing technology investments can work together to create a comprehensive patient record.

“By implementing OnBase, integrated with our Epic EPR, we will improve patient safety and an all-round better patient experience. Our staff will be able to spend more time caring for our patients as they will have faster access to information through a one patient record, and Hyland has proven experience in helping to deliver this goal.”

Christopher Brice, UK and Ireland healthcare sales manager for Hyland, added: “The trust will benefit from consolidated access to important patient information, delivering the right patient information at the right time, whilst streamlining clinical workflows.

“With the ability to access all documentation and clinical content from within a single view, Frimley Health clinicians will be better equipped to make more informed medical decisions and optimise patient outcomes.”
