London - 12 February 2018 - UKCloud, the easy to adopt, easy to use and easy to leave assured cloud services company and the Healthcare Electronic Document Management Systems (EDMS) provider IMMJ Systems today jointly announced the launch of “MediViewer Cloud” for secure, scalable, reliable, mission-critical services with best-in-class EDMS technology in line with the NHS Cloud guidelines* recently published by NHS Digital and NHS England.
MediViewer is a game-changing next generation Electronic Document Management System specifically designed for patient records to deliver a paperless NHS. MediViewer provides clinicians and relevant hospital staff with a powerful, intuitive and user-friendly solution to view a patient’s digitised paper and electronic records. This simple yet sophisticated platform facilitates rapid access to clinical content providing a 360º view of a patient’s record at the point of care.
IMMJ Systems’ delivery team, all of whom have worked within the NHS, advise and oversee all aspects of implementation, transformation and scanning requirements until all departments and specialties are live. Its deep experience coupled with a configurable, intuitive system serves to ease and simplify the transition from paper to digital records thereby increasing rapid user adoption and introducing all the advantages of fully digital patient records. MediViewer is built around the needs of clinicians on the front line, working as they work rather than expecting them to fit the technology consequently delivering clinical and operational benefits from ward to board.
MediViewer also offers a revolutionary integrated scanning and document classification module that drastically reduces the time and costs historically associated with scanning and indexing records bringing seamless and unrivalled benefits to the scanning process and ingestion of the digital imagery into MediViewer.
MediViewer Cloud provides access to MediViewer’s EDMS functionality on UKCloud Health’s award-winning cloud infrastructure, enabling the NHS to benefit from greater flexibility and substantial cost savings while being fully compliant with the recently announced NHS Cloud national guidelines* and legislation. The new MediViewer Cloud implementation, transformation and software licencing model will give healthcare organisations financial flexibility by mixing capital and revenue based funding or if preferred to consider a flat lined revenue payment model thereby surfacing an earlier return on investment. This flexibility will complement and accelerate the Business Case for implementing MediViewer by reducing costs and capital requirements, while offering operational benefits over the duration of the contract and meeting predefined financial milestones on the journey.
As IMMJ Systems Chief Revenue Officer, Max Smith, explains: “MediViewer Cloud demonstrates our continuous commitment to offering our customers the best-performing EDMS technology in the cloud in line with the recent NHS Cloud guidelines* jointly published by NHS Digital and NHS England. Healthcare providers are finally able to consider all the benefits a cloud service can deliver to their organisations with confidence, freeing up valuable IT resources and avoiding the need to procure capital draining resources such as expensive hardware and with enhanced security and 24 x 7 management and monitoring capabilities.” Max continues, “Approximately 20% of Acute Trusts are already using the cloud to deliver critical services and we are delighted to be launching MediViewer Cloud in partnership with UKCloud Health to deliver a secure, more powerful and cost effective EDMS value proposition to the NHS.”
“Recent guidance* has given the green light for the NHS’s use of cloud technology for storing patient data, accelerating the digital transformation that is supporting the Five Year Forward View and transforming patient care with the effective use of information technology,” explains Simon Hansford, CEO at UKCloud. “However, healthcare organisations still need to ensure that their most sensitive data is stored securely and easily accessible across secure government networks such as N3 and HSCN. With MediViewer Cloud on UKCloud Health, you get best in class EDMS functionality in an assured security domain accredited for OFFICIAL and OFFICIAL SENSITIVE workloads, safe in the knowledge that your data will always remain in the UK.”
UKCloud Health’s assured cloud solutions are designed to meet the exclusive needs of the UK public sector which makes them different. They have developed an offering which is solely focused on the UK public sector and its very specific requirements. Their services are subject to UK Government accreditations, confirming their suitability for supporting OFFICIAL and OFFICIAL SENSITIVE data; and are authorised to connect to multiple government networks; and are assessed against recognised international standards ISO9001, ISO20000, ISO27001 and ISO27018. Through UKCloud’s assured cloud services working with IMMJ Systems, the NHS can benefit from lower costs, reduced procurement times and a simplified tendering process, without compromising either performance or security.
IMMJ Systems Chief Executive Officer Michael van de Weg comments: “UKCloud Health has a deep understanding of the NHS and understands the mission criticality of delivering a platform for clinical systems like MediViewer which provides essential clinical information to healthcare workers hospital wide and at the point of care.” Michael adds: “They were by far our service provider of choice for assured cloud services to the NHS and we look forward to a very successful partnership.”
