Frimley Health picks Hyland as part of five-year strategy

Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust has selected OnBase from Hyland, an information platform, to digitise and manage clinical documents.

In September 2020, Frimley announced it would adopt Epic as it electronic patient record, part of a £108m deal. The trust in late 2019 published an ambitious five-year strategy, ‘Our future FHFT’, and set out plans for the EPR to be deployed in March 2022, along with advancing in other areas of health tech over the next five years.

The OnBase platform will aim to consolidate existing documents stored in repositories, and optimise workflows and performance across the enterprise, integrating with the EPR.

Frimley Health has also selected Hyland’s ‘PACSGear Video-Touch 4k solution with Hyland’s Enablement Workflow’ (VIEW) for specialty departments such as Endoscopy to capture images and video, into OnBase then deliver it to clinicians through the Enterprise Viewer within Epic.

Lucy Barette, EPR programme director at Frimley Health, commented: “We are very much looking forward to using OnBase, which will seamlessly integrate with our Epic EPR to create an interoperable platform, where our existing technology investments can work together to create a comprehensive patient record.

“By implementing OnBase, integrated with our Epic EPR, we will improve patient safety and an all-round better patient experience. Our staff will be able to spend more time caring for our patients as they will have faster access to information through a one patient record, and Hyland has proven experience in helping to deliver this goal.”

Christopher Brice, UK&I Healthcare sales manager for Hyland Healthcare, added: “Leveraging our content services platform to consolidate unstructured content, Frimley Health will benefit from the deep functionality and interoperability within OnBase and PACSGear, proven to integrate successfully with the trust’s Epic EPR. The trust will benefit from consolidated access to important patient information, delivering the right patient information at the right time, whilst streamlining clinical workflows.”
