Barts Health NHS Streamlines Electronic Patient Records

LONDON – 9 July 2012 – Barts Health NHS Trust, the largest National Health Service Trust in England, has selected OnBase, Hyland Software’s enterprise content management (ECM) solution, to streamline electronic patient records (EPR). The Trust required an ECM solution that would reduce the time and money spent managing and storing paper patient records while streaming clinical workflows to improve productivity.

“Hyland Software demonstrated a depth of experience in integrating with Cerner Millennium, which provides the Trust’s Care Record System,” said Toby Lewis, deputy chief executive of Barts Health NHS Trust. “OnBase offers a complete ECM solution that will fully integrate with Barts’ core applications. This will provide our clinicians with up-to-date patient information which they can access without having to leave Cerner Millennium.”

OnBase will reduce the cost and physical space needed for storing paper patient records and will provide the workflow to streamline document-based processes.

James Longstaff, Hyland Software’s director of sales, Europe and Africa, adds, “We are delighted to be working with Barts Health NHS Trust to complete its electronic patient records. With over 1,400 healthcare customers worldwide, Hyland has a wealth of expertise that we can bring to the Trust to reduce costs while improving patient safety and quality of care.”
