MediViewer minimising COVID cross infection in hospitals
IMMJ Systems are working in partnership with London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust to minimise the spread of COVID-19 and support virtual clinics for its clinical users, by digitising paper-based clinical records and making them digitally available using their Rapid Deployment Service to all healthcare providers via MediViewer, IMMJ’s next generation and market leading electronic document management system.
Once deployed, MediViewer will help support the Trusts virtual Outpatient clinics by minimising the potential for COVID-19 cross infection between patients, consultants, nurses and any other exposed hospital workers. The rapidly deployed solution incorporates a scan on demand service of all patient records ahead of each Outpatient clinic, providing the consultant with remote access to key patient records that are currently held in paper format in the hospital’s medical records libraries and across the hospital site.
MediViewer’s cloud-based solution provides the platform for London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust with access to patient records anytime, anywhere and on any device. Tens of thousands of patient medical records will be securely scanned and stored in IMMJ Systems’ MediViewer platform thereby reducing not only the need for patients to attend the hospital for appointments but also enabling clinicians to work remotely.
Furthermore, the solution will also ensure that medical records will no longer need to be moved around the hospital where they are physically handled many times before, during and after each patient appointment.
Max Smith, Chief Revenue Officer and Co-Founder at IMMJ Systems commented: “COVID- 19 has driven us to innovate our approach to our MediViewer deployment methodology. Faced with the challenge of providing a fully functional MediViewer solution within a six-week period inspired the IMMJ team to think outside of the box by streamlining the delivery process to focus purely on providing digitised patient records to virtual outpatient clinics. We are now working seamlessly with the Trust to configure the solution in line with their requirements followed by the ingestion of the digitised records into the MediViewer.
“We are enormously proud to be supporting London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust during this extremely difficult time. Priority here has been agility, collaboration and innovative technology that can be rapidly deployed safely and securely.”
Sonia Patel, Chief Information Officer at London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust and The Hillingdon Hospital as well as the newly appointed Chief Information Officer for NHSX, added: “Faced with the COVID-19 crisis and the urgent need to move to virtual Outpatient services, we were under pressure to find a solution that would support our consultants with relevant patient information required to deliver effective virtual clinics.
“Having already been exposed to IMMJ Systems’ MediViewer solution at The Hillingdon Hospital we knew this was the solution for us. This has been a successful partnership between the trust and tech to deliver critical digital information, during a very challenging time.”
MediViewer from IMMJ Systems has been built specifically for healthcare and enables the rapid digitisation of clinical content for use at the point of care by providing structure to patient paper records – inherently unstructured information.
