Document Management for NHS and Private Healthcare
How can document management improve efficiency in the NHS and healthcare?
Potential efficiency gains from document management are of increasing interest to UK hospitals and healthcare service providers as operational margins fall and patient registrations rise. Under these conditions, switching to electronic healthcare records can help cut inefficiencies in manually handling paper documents, reduce paper storage costs and improve service delivery.
With Data Capture Solutions, you can dismantle information silos and have one document management library for patient records, material management and procurement, X-ray images, insurance details and other business records. Using a centralised digital repository, our workflow solutions enable faster access to patient information by departments regardless of location, and ensure strict adherence to Data Protection guidelines.
