Since 1997, Heidekreis-Klinikum have functioned as two hospitals sharing one administration. The original goal of their merger was to optimize operations, improve patient services and reduce costs — something easier said than done.
Hospital management quickly realized the only solution to meet their medical and budget demands was to work with Nextway to implement a shared electronic document management solution capable of archiving and managing patient medical records and other important documents.
With the implementation of a new shared electronic archive, the hospitals have become more closely connected. Nextway implemented a user-friendly, reliable solution with the necessary data security. Now doctors, medical staff and administrative personnel at both hospitals can always access the necessary information when they need it.
The Next® solution is fully integrated with the hospitals’ existing data system (KIS) via a HL7 interface. Authorized personnel have up-to-date access to any patient journal the instant a medical journal is modified. In addition, a digital signature and time stamp are incorporated in every update and amendment, providing a complete, traceable medical history.
Optimizing routines saves valuable time and money. More importantly, Heidekreis-Klinikum can provide a higher level of service during the critical situations when a doctor needs to make a quick decision regarding a patient’s treatment.
Due to the unique combination of functionality and price, Nextway’s health care solutions continue to differentiate themselves. In contrast to other solutions in the sector, which charge by the number of users or hospital beds, the Nextway license is unlimited. Moreover, Nextway is a well proven, easily integrated, user-friendly solution, capable of running on any server or ERP platform.
