Partnership for NHS EDM and Scanning Project
Early in 2013 a large Southern based multi-hospital Trust awarded Kainos, one of our key strategic partners in the NHS sector, a contract for the provision of an Electronic Medical Record (EMR)solution and associated document scanning services. Implementation of the project is now underway with the roll out of the Kainos Evolve EMR system across the Trust. The document scanning services provided by Hugh Symons Information Management (HSIM) has also commenced with full scale production planned to be operational during November 2013. The conversion of approximately 160,000 medical records is due to be completed in a ten month period.
Outsourced document scanning provided by HSIM will supply live clinics with the bulk of the electronic records they need whilst last minute amendments to clinic lists will be provided by onsite scanning.
