Hull Trust achieves target savings from Idox system in just five months


Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust has reported a rapid return from its investment in Idox Health’s
iRecords solution.

The system – which deploys technology for the faster tracking, storage and retrieval of patient records –  was adopted by the Trust to manage its 3,000 case notes a day and, in just the first five months following implementation, has helped the team to hit its productivity savings targets well ahead of time.

Martin Whittle, Health Records Manager for the Trust commented:

“Now notes are filed with iRecords, we’ve been able to completely transform the management of our records, making it far easier, safer and quicker to store and retrieve patient information. As a result, we work more productively and can increase patient safety by ensuring case note availability.”

The Trust has also reported a 15% library shelf space increase, and an 80% quicker filing rate for records – vital for ensuring high-quality patient care and efficient and reliable processes for the Health Records team.
