We already cannot wait for you to see what we have in store for 2018 but first, as 2017 has drawn to a close, let’s round up the year.

2017 Year in Review Infographic

Docman Share

2017 saw us announce Docman Share, which provides clinicians access to Primary Care documents across all healthcare settings. It supports health economies achieve their Sustainability and Transformation objectives and Local Digital Roadmap. You can find out more here.


Docman 10

This year we released Docman 10 to the market – a cloud based software that manages the transfer of care within a healthcare organisation. It is accessible from anywhere, at any time and through any device, so it’s going to be fundamental in revolutionising the digital transfer of care. Docman 10 is now live and benefitting practices across the country. When talking about their recent move from Docman GP to Docman 10, Tracy Dell, Practice Manager of Plane Trees Group Practice in Halifax stated that “Docman has not only saved us time but has increased our productivity which greatly benefits the patients we serve.” For more information about Docman 10, click here.


Award Recognition

We won an award with Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust in the Paperless Awards. Oxleas were one of the first customers to utilise Docman as a trust-wide electronic document workflow system, so it was great for this collaboration to gain acknowledgment. Alongside this, we were shortlisted for ‘Paperless Project of the Year’ for a project involving Docman Hub and Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust in the Public Sector UK Paperless Awards.


National Docman Conferences 2017

We held our National Docman Conferences 2017 at Chelsea Football Club and Manchester United Football Club. This was a very exciting conference as it saw us launching Docman 10 into the market and showcasing its revolutionary features to all attendees. However, the National Docman Conferences 2018 are set to be bigger and better than ever, so you do not want to miss out! Don’t delay, click here to register your free place today.


Full Roll-Out Approval

NHS Digital granted us full roll-out approval for Docman 10, and with 2,000 orders already placed, it’s all systems go in fulfilling them! Read all about it here.


We value feedback from our customers, so we touch base with them regularly to see how they’re utilising Docman in their care setting. Here’s a few examples of customer testimonials throughout 2017:

“We were delighted to be a finalist at the Paperless Awards and the national recognition for this project is rewarding. Docman were instrumental to the project and worked alongside us to successfully deliver the EDN. GP practices across Kent and Medway now receive an electronic discharge summary, reducing the risk of paper summaries being misplaced or going astray”.

Josie Broady, Head of Clinical Information Systems & Records Management

Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust (KMPT)


“We looked at automating processes by spending time with administrators and GPs to truly understand how administration flows through a Practice. We have co-designed an approach so administrators can filter correspondence to reduce the correspondence GPs have to process, and in result this equates to 40 minutes per day.”

Paul Deffley, Clinical Lead Primary Care Collaboration



“Since implementing Docman Hub, InHealth’s services have undoubtedly become much more efficient. Faster reporting to referrers has resulted in better service for patients, faster diagnosis and ultimately faster treatment – overall a much better experience for customers and patients.  Some of our larger customers have said that Docman Hub saves them up to 8 hours per day.”

Marc O’Brien, Chief Information Officer



“Saves time and increases efficiency with delegation of clinical admin work from GPs and nursing team to clinical admin and to reception staff. Clinical governance systems have improved, summarising and coding of medical records turnaround has reduced from 6 weeks to 1 week and our clinical correspondence is now actioned twice daily.”
