Healthcare

With increasing regulation and stricter cost containment policies, healthcare teams are being pushed to streamline and modernise business process, manage information overload and introduce tighter controls for patient privacy.

In fact, the Department of Health published its information strategy – The power of information – in May 2012 and set out a ten-year framework for digital transformation across the NHS, public health and social care. Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has said the NHS “should go paperless” by 2018.

Your challenges

Healthcare teams spend much of their day designing forms and collecting data for audit or key performance indicators, which is manually transcribed into spreadsheets or databases for processing and analysis. The types of information routinely collected includes:

  • Audit of drug charts
  • Controlled drugs contractor self-assessments
  • Competency assessments
  • Data for quality improvement work
  • Discharge turnaround times
  • Intervention data
  • Medicines reconciliation
  • On-the-spot concerns
  • Patient surveys
  • Patient record management
  • Pre-registration and diploma audits
  • Prescribing audits

Manual processing of data is time consuming and decreases efficiency and reduces accuracy through transcription errors. Often, the time and effort needed to re-collect data is a barrier to the audit process and measurement of improvement.

Our solution

At ePC, our data capture and high volume scanning technology automates the collection and processing of patient records from paper forms into real-time patient databases or Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, depending on the application.

Patient data is scanned, verified and processed by TeleForm software which reduces data entry costs, improves productivity and outpatient research and enhances the quality of patient information and research capabilities.
