Docman have launched their new cloud based software platform Docman 10 at the recent National Docman Conferences 2017.
Docman 10 manages the transfer of care process between clinicians and healthcare organisations and the announcement was made to around 700 delegates at the Conferences coinciding with the first GP Practice site going live with the software.
Docman 10 is an innovative platform that has been built to support the future direction of the NHS, provide access from a web browser on any tablet or PC, enabling federated working across primary care organisations and working collaboratively across healthcare teams.
Ric Thompson, Managing Director at Docman highlighted the direction of travel for the company with Docman 10 being the start of an exciting journey and a platform for the future.
Ric said “We started to design Docman 10 two years ago and we are delighted to announce that the first GP Practice is live! Docman 10 is set to revolutionise the way healthcare professionals manage the transfer of care within and between organisations. We have already had over 800 GP Practices request the Docman 10 migration package and I’m really proud of what we have achieved so far but I’m also really excited about the potential of what Docman 10 means for healthcare professionals in the future.”
“We recognised 2 years ago the direction of travel for healthcare providers and the need for cross organisational collaboration, discussions, communication and the need to share information and data. We worked with our large customer base to develop this platform to meet the challenges and demands of a 21st Century health economy.”
Fran Kirke, Commercial Director, Docman “There has been huge demand in the market place for the web based platform with CCGs, GP Practices and Federations excited about the opportunities of having all organisations and their documents on a single platform. This includes across traditional boundaries of a GP practice, extended hours, shared care records and new models of care.”
“We’re delighted to launch Docman 10 and extend the reach of Docman Hub to a greater number of healthcare organisations.”
The conference showcased many examples of where Docman is bringing real efficiencies and savings to the health economy. HERE, a Primary Care not-for-profit social enterprise presented their approach to optimising the process of managing incoming clinical correspondence and in result reducing the GP admin burden by 80%, saving 40 minutes per day per GP. HERE have used data to make decisions and automate processes within Docman to the benefit of staff time.
At the conferences Docman also announced an exciting development to Docman Hub, to enable any healthcare provider to now send clinical correspondence to thousands of GP Practices across the country through a managed service.
InHealth an independent provider of managed diagnostic solutions at the conferences announced their decision to utilise the Docman Managed Hub to send correspondence digitally to GP Practices across England. The development to the structured messaging platform used by over 125 healthcare providers means providers can now send a greater number of documents digitally by being connected to a greater number of practices. In result this means more communications can reach GPs quicker and the costs of transferring information is further reduced.
Tim Robinson, Product Director, Docman “We love what we do and developing innovative solutions to support the biggest transfer of care network in the world. We love to see our users get more from the software, push boundaries and utilise data and information to customise the system to automate processes further. We know if we can improve one process by a few mouse clicks, then once rolled-out across our 200,000 users it makes significant difference to healthcare.”
Docman also announced at the conferences some of the significant achievements from providers using Docman. The company showcased Greater Manchester’s achievement of sending over 5 million digital documents to GP Practices. Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust was referenced for its achievement in digitising the sending of documents from 41 different sources which include discharge summaries, A&E attendance letters, specialist services letters and maternity letters.
