Link-up drives forward paperless NHS
Lexacom, supplier of digital dictation solutions for NHS primary care, has announced a new, exclusive partnership with Docman.
This partnership will see the deployment throughout England of a fully-integrated document creation, workflow, and management system.
Working closely with Docman - the number one supplier of advanced electronic document management software – the partnership will enable the transfer of care for 40,000,000 patients between 120 NHS trusts and 6,000 GP practices.
Users will now benefit from a seamless document creation and workflow platform driving greater levels of efficiency and productivity. Through the tightly-integrated solution, healthcare providers can significantly improve the management of their patients’ care.
Dr Andrew Whiteley, Lexacom’s managing director, said: “We are delighted to be able to formally announce our key strategic partnership with Docman. This announcement is testament that both companies are dedicated to improving the efficiency and safety of the NHS through the use of technology. Together, we are able to offer a much-broader solution to our clients throughout the NHS. The partnership of our two organisations is extremely well timed, as the Health Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, announced recently the NHS’s paperless aspirations and how technology is critical in achieving these goals.”
Ric Thompson, managing director at Docman, added: “Working with Lexacom will provide our customers with one seamless solution for the creation, management and workflow of patient’s transfer of care between healthcare settings.”
