CCube Solutions announces an alliance with Restore to provide NHS Trusts and Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) a joint solution comprising award-winning electronic document management software (EDMS) and secure high volume scanning services.
Both companies have a long history working with customers in the health service. With an ability to deliver based on two decades of expertise and an established track record of project success, CCube Solutions’ EDMS software is now installed at 28 hospitals around the country with Restore working with over 40% of all NHS Trusts in the UK providing records management and scanning services. The alliance is symbiotic and means that CCube Solutions and Restore will target more NHS organisations seeking to grapple with the challenges of becoming paper free at the point of care. This is in the context of current Government initiatives that the health service should embrace technology to improve productivity, save money and enhance clinical diagnosis and care.
"Our EDMS, eForms and workflow software is customisable and supports how the medical profession wants to work rather than IT being foisted upon them. We use clever indexing and forms recognition technology to make it simple to find and not search for information."
The two firms are already collaborating on three NHS deals including a project with Sheffield Teaching Hospitals – a contract worth almost £4 million to install a new EDMS solution Trust-wide and scan 175 million pages over a 3-year period. Documents are processed by Restore to meet strict SLAs. Images are then transmitted back to the hospital – integrated with CCube’s EDMS - using secure FTP over a dedicated N3 link.
Richard Lancaster, Restore’s BPO solutions manager, says, “In the UK, there are four key EDMS players and CCube Solutions is one of them. Document management has been a bit of a minefield for some Trusts as evidenced by various failed projects. The onus for Trusts and CCGs is to work with software suppliers who can truly deliver enterprise-wide solutions and can point to successful use case examples. CCube Solutions can do this and is why we are collaborating with them.”
