IMS MAXIMS and Secure Exchange Solutions partner

IMS MAXIMS and Secure Exchange Solutions have announced a partnership to offer mobile provider-to-provider and provider-to-patient communications to NHS organisations, GP practices and patients.

The partnership aims to support NHS organisations move away from outdated technologies and remove paper correspondence within and between organisations and with patients.

Shane Tickell, Chief Executive of IMS MAXIMS “The current methods by which clinical and sometimes urgent information is exchanged in the NHS have come in for increasing scrutiny as concerns have grown that they are antiquated and expensive.”

“Recognising the shortcomings of some of the current systems in use, Matt Hancock has called on NHS organisations to plan for the introduction of modern, secure communications solutions. Our partnership with Secure Exchange Solutions, a leader in this field, is a direct response to that challenge.”

IMS MAXIMS and SES will immediately make available a simple, secure and seamless communication solution that is already delivering superior security and performance to thousands of healthcare providers and millions of administrators and patients in the US.

This solution is called SES DIRECT, which provides a variety of methods to connect to its secure data exchange platform, including SMTP and POP3 email clients (such as Microsoft Outlook and Apple’s iPhone email).

It comes with robust directory services, end-to-end message encryption, and easy integration options with healthcare applications including: electronic patient record systems, patient portals, clinical data repositories, patient health applications and GP systems.
