The National Health Service (NHS) stores a large amount of active and inactive health records that require vast physical storage as well as multi faceted document retrieval and management. The industry is looking to go paperless by 2018 and Cleardata is an approved, trusted supplier for the industry. The company can help with medical records scanning, secure document storage and document management solutions. Records commonly digitised and stored include:-
- Patient Health Records
- GP Medical Records
- Medical Notes
- PCT Records
- Endoscopy Records
- Sterile Services Unit Records
- A&E, Birth and Theatre Registers
- X-ray Records and Imaging
- Microfiche and Microfilm
- Immunisation Records
- and much more!
Whilst paper does have an important part to play with regard to clinical and evidential values, the government has set a milestone to achieve a paperless NHS by 2018 – meaning that Hospital, PCT and GP records should be accessible at the push of a button.
