“MISL is our strategic partner for the scanning of our legacy case notes as part of our project to digitise medical records across the Trust. The Trust had previously worked with MISL on a smaller scale to archive patient notes, but the scale of this project was bigger than either MISL or the Trust had undertaken before. MISL and the Trust worked together closely to determine the workflows from medical records to the scanning bureau to allow the timely scanning of both historic notes and paper content being generated through clinical contact on a daily basis.
As with any large scale project, there were issues, especially at go-live, but MISL was extremely proactive and professional in working with the Trust team to overcome these issues.
After 6 months of live running, availability of scanned notes is higher than the availability of paper notes before the system went live, and every day MISL are able to ensure that every set of notes sent to their bureau has been scanned and uploaded to the EDRM system.”
