CCube Solutions has announced that it has signed a reseller agreement with OPEX Corporation to sell a combined EDMS and document scanning workstation solution to the NHS.
The new deal will help Trusts digitise legacy patient medical records and make this information available to clinicians and other health professionals at the point of care. It also supports the Government’s drive that the NHS should be using technology to improve productivity, reduce costs and ultimately enhance patient care.
CCube Solutions will resell OPEX’s proprietary scanning workstations, the Falcon series, on projects based on individual customer requirements with the two companies working together. The Falcon series was designed to cope with the most difficult document types including those found in hospital environments.
Paul Keefe, OPEX Sales Manager for the UK and Republic of Ireland said, “normal high volume scanners are great if you have pristine documents to run through them or you spend ages on preparation. But in a NHS context when you’re dealing with old legacy patient records which are usually of poor quality, that’s the exception not the rule. The beauty of the Falcon workstation is the combination of various types of scanning built-in which results in significant labour savings and therefore return on investment.”
CCube Solutions provides enterprise content management solutions, comprising electronic document and records management, workflow, electronic forms, portal software, and systems integration. Founded in 1995, it has a worked with the police, local government, NHS and in the private sector.
Vijay Magon, CCube Solutions’ Managing Director added, “scanning medical records efficiently and using EDMS to access them is all about optimising a crucial medical process namely patient/clinical consultations. You want clinicians to have someone’s complete medical history available at the touch of a button. To choose a system which does this, NHS managers should select IT companies who can show solid evidence of project success and that’s where both companies, CCube and OPEX, score highly. We have solutions which work well in the real world and where there’s a big focus on delivering for customers.”
