Each year Civica deliver software and services to around 400 healthcare providers worldwide and digitise 150 million documents to enable efficient electronic processes.
In the UK, 200 NHS Trusts are supported by Civica systems and their WinDIP Electronic Document Management, e-forms and Workflow solution is amongst the most widely used in the marketplace. Deployed successfully in over 60 NHS organisations this provides Civica with unparalleled experience in the implementation of EDM and Workflow solutions in the NHS and ensures they are one of the key experts within our health informatics forum.
Civica offer a unique service which allows them to deliver the end to end process, from digitising paper records to implementing the WinDIP software for the retrieval of these records. WinDIP can be used standalone or integrated within existing applications such as the Trust’s clinical portal or other clinical systems, to make its function and data globally useful across an organisation.
Civica will be sending a delegation to our Leeds based Forum and will be demonstrating their tried and tested EDM and Workflow solution. WinDIP supports the government’s vision of a paperless NHS by 2018, allowing organisations to remove their reliance on paper records, which improves efficiency and patient safety and supports clinical decision making.
Paul Sanders, General Manager Records Management, at Civica said “We are pleased to be participating within the UK Health Informatics Forum. This platform offers a strategic opportunity for us to share our experience of streamlining processes, improving efficiency and aiding clinical decision making through the use of effective electronic processes. It is an excellent chance for NHS and service providers to experience and discuss the real and measurable benefits of digitisation with the healthcare sector”.
