MediTech Solutions offers a 'Bureau Service' for clinical summarisation where we provide GP practices with a highly reliable, accurate, efficient and cost-effective outsourcing solution for patient summarisation. Our streamlined process is designed to enhance productivity and efficiency while causing minimal or NO interference in the normal day-to-day running of the GP practice.
We also operate mobile scanning units which could come to your practice to prep and scan the patient records onsite. Our digital transformation team is fully equipped and self-sufficient in bringing our own necessary equipment including industrial strength scanner and computer. All we need is access to patient records and a small room with a couple of tables and chairs for our operations. This way the patient records never leave the GP practice, who has full access to all the records throughout the entire digitisation process.
We use a team of highly qualified and experienced doctors from all major specialties and facets of medical sciences for Clinical Data Summarisation, resulting in the generation of accurate and high quality patient summaries. Our summarisation team can complete the summarisation process, whether to get rid of the backlog of records or for the on-going support for new patient registrations, in matter of days rather than in weeks or months.
We are one of the few organisations who specialises in clinical summarisation and has the most experience in this service sector. And our expertise match second to none!
Clinical Data Summarising is a process whereby specific salient and significant aspects of patient's medical history are extracted from their Lloyd George medical records to form a precise, succinct summary. This provides a safe platform of patient information with comprehensive medical information about a patient to the appropriate and precise use of read codes.
The patient summary would store patients' essential details such as their address, date of birth, NHS number and their comprehensive health and medical care history, which includes the codes of all significant aspects of a person's medical care such as :-
Over the next 4 years, NHS Digital is aiming to get all GP practices in England to offer 'Digital-First' primary care to their patients. But this objective can only be achieved by replacing the current patchwork of paper records with digital patient records for each of England's 60 million patients and having them fully summarised. This clinical data needs to be entered into the clinical system so it can be accessed anytime and from anywhere in the UK.
Moreover, patients are likely to be treated by a variety of care professionals in a range of locations throughout their lifetime. Each doctor will keep a separate medical record focusing on the most recent encounter with the patient. Currently, these pieces of vital medical information cannot be shared easily amongst different hospitals, GP surgeries or Community/Social Caretakers nationwide as the computers/networks in different NHS organisations are not inter-connected and hence cannot communicate with each other.
But patient summary reports that are being created as part of NHS Digital Care Record Service (NHS CRS) would change all of this, providing solutions to problems/issues that have dogged NHS for ages.
NHS Digital aims to issue electronic NHS Care record to all the NHS patients and put them on a centralised patient record database, SPINE, to enable easy information sharing between GP surgeries and hospitals nationwide. This new NHS setup would effectively link various disparate NHS organisations to create a true national health service.
