The NHS is on a digital journey that varies from feeling like a sprint to a marathon depending on who you ask.
Yet, no matter which way you look at it, we are moving in a positive direction that feels inevitable, and that’s because it’s being driven through funded policies promoting healthcare digitisation.
The Five Year Forward View (FYFV) and Personalised Health and Care 2020 (PHC2020) set the scene, but so much more has happened since then.
Whether it’s Robert Wachter’s review that led to the Global Digital Exemplars (GDEs) and Fast Followers programme, or the more recent Local Health and Care Record Exemplars (LHCREs) there is now money being set aside to implement IT systems and other healthcare digitisation solutions that promote enhanced clinical workflows, information sharing, productivity and patient safety.
At T-Pro, we know how important every IT investment decision is for a trust.
We also know that any healthcare digitisation solutions must meet a range of needs and generate benefits clinically, operationally and financially. Getting to those positive outcomes means delivering solutions and building relationships that are focused on long term outcomes and not just short-term ones.
What does that mean in practice?
With our digital workflow platform, we cover everything from document creation through to distribution in a way that’s optimised for a trust’s digital journey.
We’re different from traditional clinical documentation companies because we’ve taken the power of transcription, digital dictation and speech recognition solutions and wrapped them into a cloud first, mobile ready package that’s based on the latest interoperability standards (HL7, FHIR, XML etc.).
Our platform is ideal for trusts on a journey to adopt electronic health records (EHR) systems because our solutions can be integrated to give clinicians the best digital experience possible of clinical documentation.
Our healthcare digitisation solutions have been developed with clinical input and continue to be refined to meet the evolving needs of different clinical environments so that a great clinical user experience means greater optimised adoption of EHR systems and a return on investment sooner.
These are essential benefits for all trusts, not just GDEs, but also create a foundation for information sharing that can support interoperability best practice between trusts too, such as through LHCREs.
Whenever we work with a new customer at T-Pro, our focus isn’t just on products...
It's also about building relationships and ensuring positive outcomes.
We make sure we understand your objectives and the context of the investment you’re making by engaging with a range of stakeholders critical to the success of your healthcare IT strategy from the CIO to the CCIO.
That’s been the cornerstone of our success and will continue to be as we work with trusts whether they’re moving up the HIMSS EMRAM scale or working with others as a part of regional digitisation plans.
