EASILY ACCESSIBLE LLOYD GEORGE NOTES THAT WERE PREVIOUSLY STORED AND FILED ON SITE
SQUARE METRES OF STORAGE SPACE WERE RECLAIMED FOR CLINICAL USE

270 SQ. METRES BEING TIED UP FOR RECORD STORAGE
COMPLETE RECORDS NEED TO BE FOUND AND RETRIEVED IN TIME FOR PATIENT APPOINTMENTS
RAPIDLY EXPANDING PATIENT BASE REQUIRED MORE CLINICAL SPACE
The project was a collaborative effort, with the practice staff collating Lloyd George files and organising batches, ready for collection and scanning by the NHSBSA team. Working alongside Dr. Stephenson’s team, NHSBSA utilised the OPEX® Falcon scanning platform and created an indexing system for the scanned documents to ensure easy upload and accurate retrieval from the digital archive.
The OPEX Falcon scanner is designed in such a way that it enables a single operator to deliver a single touch ‘prep and scan’ solution, quickly transforming unstructured paper files into structured file content alongside images and metadata – ready for onward processing and ingestion into EPR systems. The end result enables the clinical team to make informed decisions about patients based upon the electronic information captured and presented for them.
“IT HAS BEEN A PLEASURE WORKING ALONGSIDE THE NHSBSA SCANNING TEAM TO DELIVER A RECORD SOLUTION THAT COULD HELP MANY OTHER PRACTICES IN THE FUTURE. THE PROCESS WAS QUICK AND EFFICIENT AND THE NHSBSA TEAM WERE PROFESSIONAL THROUGHOUT – NOTHING WAS TOO MUCH TROUBLE. WITH PLANS UNDERWAY, WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO WELCOMING PATIENTS TO OUR NEW WAITING AREA AND USING OUR ADDITIONAL CONSULTING ROOM.”
