Docman RMS is a workflow management system that helps NHS Trusts and other healthcare service providers to manage referrals regardless of how they are received. Accessed entirely through a web browser, it provides secure access to clinical documents making it easy for a clinician to manage referrals at any time. Our solution has been integrated with NHS eRS, allowing the entire patient referral process to be digitised. This is delivering time and cost efficiencies to NHS Trusts.

Understanding key issues
Many NHS Trusts still use Excel spreadsheets to track incoming referrals. This does not provide effective audit trails.
Paper-based tasks and processes require a significant level of repetitive, manual work, which is inefficient and can lack accuracy.
Reliance on local hardware
There is a significant cost to Trusts for storing and maintaining local hardware.
Risks of using post and fax
Trusts still receive many documents by post and fax. This is a costly and arguably unnecessary process, which also carries the risk of referral being lost, unread or sent to the wrong person.
