With the drive to level up digital provision across the NHS, the digitisation of patient records is a fundamental component of this transformation. But, with the average GP surgery estimated to handle around 750,000 pages of health records at any one time, the scale of the challenge of shifting to a digital-first healthcare system is clear.
iRecords enables trusts to accurately track medical records across the healthcare environment, transforming the records management process into a modern, location-based logistics operation. Supported by the installation of fixed RFID passive readers and sensors to accurately track case note movement across the healthcare estate, and the provision of handheld devices to reliably locate case notes electronically, our system ensures timely access to patient information. Together with reliable PAS integration, this enables staff to rapidly trace record locations across an ICS, further supporting the drive towards interoperability and shared care records.
As a GS1-compliant solution, it delivers immediate efficiency savings in tracking, locating, re-filing and auditing of records, helping healthcare trusts meet NHS directives and enhancing patient care and safety.
