Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust has selected Hyland Healthcare to provide its OnBase content services platform and PACSgear image capture solution as part of its digitisation strategy.

The trust is incorporating the new solutions as part of its Hive EPR transformation programme.

More than 750 electronic and paper records will be consolidated with a new electronic medical record powered by Epic. OnBase’s solutions were selected to complement the Epic system and support the trust’s wider digital transformation strategy.

Jo Smith, the trust’s group CIO, said: “The low-code OnBase platform integrates with more than 30 Epic modules to provide a more accurate and complete patient record, ensuring providers at Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust have the information they need to make the most informed decisions and provide the best care.”

The integration of OnBase, Epic and PACSgear will give the trust’s staff the tools required to optimise the clinical experience, boost productivity, deliver outstanding care and improve overall patient outcomes.

This will be achieved by:

  • Better management of all content including clinical forms, images and video, in a secure format at the patient, order and encounter level for improved accuracy.
  • Creation of one patient-centric record that links all patient information, consent and data from within the core application.
  • Automation of checklist processing, including deficiency tracking, referral management and subject access requires to ensure compliance with external regulations.
  • The ability to easily capture and integrate vital medical images and data during endoscopy procedures and have them available within Epic Lumens.
  • Eliminate information silos and allow clinicians to access images from any speciality or department.

Mark Groesch, director of Hyland Healthcare international sales, added: “By leveraging the tested and validated OnBase integration for Epic, and PACSgear image and video capture solution, Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust is extending the value of its Epic investment, incorporating additional essential information management functionality from within the Epic system to further streamline processes across the organisation and its multiple facilities.”

Both Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust and Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust have selected Hyland’s OnBase solution in recent months.
