Mdsas, an Independent Provider, has chosen Advanced’s Docman Connect to deliver correspondence securely and digitally
21 March 2018 – Mdsas provide IT systems and consultancy for the NHS; building bespoke national and local databases and referral systems across a range of disciplines including immunology, haemophilia and spinal cord injury.
Mdsas were struggling to maintain a list of local GP contacts as they continuously change.
"Advanced's Docman Connect was the perfect solution for the delivery of streamlined, secure electronic referrals due to “its simplicity and Advanced’s 100% coverage in Greater Manchester” - Enis Muminovic, Development Manager, Mdsas.
Docman Connect is a cross-organisational platform to manage clinical correspondence. When a document is sent through Docman Connect, it is wrapped in metadata which contains the practice details. This data is pulled from a data list that is centrally managed by Advanced, to ensure that it’s always up-to-date. Therefore, eradicating the need for Mdsas to maintain a list themselves.
Mdsas are working with Stockport CCG on this project. They are piloting with nine practices, but are set to roll out their work to 47 practices across Stockport in the near future. In a typical month, there are approximately 500 referrals to a dermatology consultant. Once fully rolled out, it is anticipated that there will be around 2,000 referrals each month. Therefore, it was incredibly important for them to choose a solution that could mirror their growth and upscale alongside them.
"Docman Connect is the perfect solution to allow scalability and ease of implementation” - Enis Muminovic, Development Manager, Mdsas.
We’re really excited to watch Mdsas grow, and to see the efficiency savings that Docman Connect will provide them with along the way.
