August 15, 2016 – CCube Solutions announces today that it has signed a reseller agreement with OPEX Corporation to sell a combined EDMS and document scanning workstation solution to the NHS.
This will help Trusts digitise legacy patient medical records and make this information available to clinicians and other health professionals at the point of care. It supports the Government’s drive that the NHS should be using technology to improve productivity, reduce costs and ultimately enhance patient care.
OPEX Corporation has developed an impressive line of proprietary scanning workstations – the Falcon® series - which excel in coping with even the most difficult document types such as found in hospital environments. CCube Solutions will resell these scanners on projects based on individual customer requirements with the two companies working together more closely given the health sector is a key market for both.
CCube Solutions provides enterprise content management solutions including EDMS, workflow, electronic forms (eForms) and portal applications. With an ability to deliver based on two decades of expertise and an established track record of project success, its EDMS software is used at 28 hospitals around the country including Aintree, Addenbrooke’s, Aneurin Bevan, Milton Keynes, Papworth and St Helens.
CCube Solutions recently launched a major new release of its EDMS, version 4 which has been completely re-architected to offer clients a single web-based product family with the software configurable per installation. This will facilitate faster implementations and easier support. Other key features of version 4 include standard APIs for simpler system integration, enhanced content searching, ‘built in’ eForms capability and access to the EDMS via smartphones and tablets.
With a 22 inch monitor incorporated into the design, Falcon scanners offer customers the only combined preparation and high volume scanning workstation on the market able to process a range of document sizes at up to 110 pages per minute at 300 dpi. They offer ultrasonic multi feed detection and can output in duplex and colour.
Paul Keefe, OPEX sales manager for the UK and Republic of Ireland, says, ”Normal high volume scanners are great if you have pristine documents to run through them or you spend ages on preparation. But in a NHS context when you’re dealing with old legacy patient records which are usually of poor quality, that’s the exception not the rule. The beauty of the Falcon workstation is the combination of various types of scanning built-in which results in significant labour savings and therefore return on investment.”
Falcon scanners offer three ways of scanning documentation. First, a high capacity hopper takes up to 700 sheets and offers continuous feeding without having to reset or supervise the machine. Second, for paperwork which is delicate or oversize, operators can use the specially designed conveyor built into the desk which aligns documents correctly before scanning. Third, a rescan feeder means operators can re-insert paper which hasn’t scanned well first time and thereby perform quality control at the time of capture. Multiple sort bins are available so paperwork can then be physically grouped after digitising has finished.
Vijay Magon, CCube Solutions’ managing director, says, “Scanning medical records efficiently and using EDMS to access them is all about optimising a crucial medical process namely patient/clinical consultations. You want clinicians to have someone’s complete medical history available at the touch of a button. To choose a system which does this, NHS managers should select IT companies who can show solid evidence of project success and that’s where both companies – CCube and OPEX– score highly. We have solutions which work well in the real world and where there’s a big focus on delivering for customers.”
OPEX Corporation at its core is all about optimising business processes.
