The solution enables the practices to remove paper from their clinical processes, increasing efficiencies and delivering better patient care through the use of electronic information. Clinicians benefit from the intuitive way the software works with ‘one click’ functionality for workflow management. Included within the solution is the BackOffice module, enabling practices to store all their business documents and data taking further steps to becoming paper-free.
Docman enables instant access to up-to-date correspondence and results with a single mouse click from a patient’s clinical record, even if documents are in a Doctors’ electronic in-tray. This ensures that information can be passed back to the patient as soon as it’s received in the practice. Documents can be filtered by clinic date, organisation, department and consultant if desired and includes a full audit trail of each document showing the date arrived, index information, workflow route, actions and completion. The solution improves data quality within the organisation and frees-up staff to redeploy resources towards the front line patient services.
Ric Thompson, Managing Director, PCTI “we are delighted that over 250 practices have taken the decision to join Docman, with the ever increasing workload placed on GP practices, our software helps them to deliver better patient service for less. Our vision is to enable GP practices deliver paper free care.”
