As a paper process, sending documents is inefficient, costly and labour intensive.
Docman Hub is a structured messaging platform which enables clinical communication between care settings.
Over 120 NHS Trusts and Provider Organisations use Docman Hub to send and receive a variety of clinical and non-clinical documents safely and securely, including electronic discharge summaries, ensuring timely delivery with a full audit trail.
As part of the NHS Standard Contract 18/19, from the 1st October 2018 all electronic clinical correspondence including discharge summaries need to be sent via direct electronic transmissions, not by email. If the NHS standards are not met, there will be a fine of up to 2.5% of the trusts quarterly turnover.Docman are fully committed to supporting the NHS Transfer of Care initiative
