UK Hospital to Digitize Over One Million Patient Record Documents

Ephesoft Transact Feeds Unity EDMS Providing Clinical Access to Records at Point of Care

North-MiddlesexLaguna Hills, CA., March 21, 2016 – Ephesoft Inc., creators of the industry-leading Smart Capture® advanced document capture platform, announced today that North Middlesex University Hospital (NMUH)—one of London’s busiest acute care facilities—has gone live with its implementation of Ephesoft Transact and Fortrus Unity.  The integrated advanced capture solution is being deployed to scan all clinical records that will become part of the electronic patient record system that is already in place.

The digitization project began in NMUH’s Pediatrics Out Patient Department, enabling hospital users to access electronic patient records combined with patient attendance information. The program is part of the National Health Service (NHS) Trust-wide IT strategy to be fully digital by 2017.  Ephesoft Transact will convert all of the hospitals clinical records into electronic format as well as accommodate any new paper documents that come from other medical providers.

“Now live, it is clear how Ephesoft plays a vital component to the transition process from paper to electronic through the intelligence of their system. This will support the work ahead of us to becoming a digital care campus supporting our clinicians” quoted Musadiq Subar, IT Programme Manager and Clinical Technical Architect at the North Middlesex University Hospital.

“We’re pleased to be chosen as part of this important program to improve clinician access to vital patient records,” commented Ian Pope, Vice President of Ephesoft, UK. “Ephesoft’s open approach allows our software to integrate with best of breed EDMS’ systems like Unity.”
