Healthcare is evolving and you need the technology to evolve with it.
Working with a range of NHS Trusts, hospitals, CSUs, CCGs and GP surgeries throughout the UK, Insight will assist you at every stage — from purchasing and implementation, all the way to improving patient care. We have a dedicated Healthcare Team that offers the expertise to help you find the best hardware, software and Cloud solutions, and get the IT support you need to ensure your technology is running efficiently and effectively.
Delivering technology driven health solutions whilst reducing costs
Working with over 400 NHS clients, our deep understanding of the budgetary constraints and other challenges faced by NHS Trusts means we provide you with the most efficient, cost-effective Healthcare IT solutions, allowing you to benefit from economies of scale.
Furthermore, aligning our technology solutions with Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) initiatives, we help you meet the increasing demand by clinicians and patients for digital health solutions.
What are eObservation Solutions?
Traditionally, monitoring a hospital patient’s (or care home resident’s) vital signs has been a time-consuming, manual and not always accurate process. Chart-based judgements have had to be made about whether a patient needs, for example, more or less monitoring, and documenting the decisions has often been incomplete.
Our eObservations solutions remove the need for manual assessment of a patient’s condition and progress. The whole process is digitalised, applying a level of intelligence to the results obtained. We supply everything needed – the software, infrastructure, tablet devices and training – and provide all the configuration necessary. With our solutions, you can go from paper-based monitoring to full digital observation in just eight weeks.
Not only does this free up clinicians’ valuable time and improve patient outcomes by supporting tailored care, it also provides a robust audit trail, with a clear recorded vision of the patient care pathway.
Electronic Document and Records Management Systems (EDRMS)
Paper patient records dating back decades pose a significant challenge to trusts and GP surgeries, in terms of accessibility, storage space and costs, and data security. The issue is compounded by the government’s goal to switch all NHS paperwork to digital records by 2018 and by NHS England’s requirement for the secure sharing of patient records.
Our EDRMS solutions support smarter, safer management of patients’ data. Historic data can be securely digitised as can current records held in unstructured physical formats such as physical folders, letters and emails.
With fully aligned digital records, there are clear benefits. Patient care is improved because a comprehensive view of a patient’s history is immediately available to clinicians. There are significant reductions in storage costs and administrative time, and security is tightened through structured access control and the incorporation of patient data into stringent disaster recovery plans.
Field-based nursing staff, GPs, health visitors and others providing care outside a hospital, waste hours trying to match different views on information about their patients in order to work out what, if any, treatment is needed. If they had a clear, single view of a patient’s treatment, how many more patients a day could they see?
Clinical Portals provide a single amalgamated view of a patient’s records, providing a level of functionality that radically transforms the level of care that field-based staff can offer patients. It also prevents costly duplication of care, enabling health workers to update a patient’s records, order tests and follow up procedures in real-time so there is a consistently accurate picture of what treatment they have received.
In addition, patients themselves can view their records, bringing new levels of transparency and engagement, and supporting the government’s call for everyone to have access to all their health records by 2018.
