Civica to digitise County Durham and Darlington NHS records

Civica has been selected by County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust to digitise patient records. Civica’s electronic document management system will help transform the way information is audited and aims to improve patient care overall.

The deal will ensure that clinical and administrative staff can access patient information quickly and efficiently, enabling them to make more informed clinical decisions. Civica’s WinDIP technology also means that if a patient is transferred to a different department within the trust, their information will still be readily to hand.

Diane Murphy, clinical director of service transformation and project sponsor at the trust said: “We’re aiming to have paperless clinical record management by 2015 and this is the next step in our strategy to get there. Being able to provide our clinicians and administrative staff with the information they need at the touch of a button will transform the way patients are treated, and help us make huge savings in the years to come.”
