Epson forms partnership with Docman to help over-stretched NHS providers keep the focus on patient care

Epson has formed an alliance with Docman, a company that manages the digital transfer of clinical correspondence across a range of healthcare settings.  Docman will use Epson scanners to increase efficiencies in the healthcare sector.

This partnership with global technology leader Epson Europe will in turn benefit the 200,000 NHS staff members, 6,000 GP practices and 125 secondary care organisations that the company supports.

“We are really looking forward to our future projects together with Epson. We understand that resources are scarce in the healthcare sector, so this partnership works to ensure that organisations are free to focus on what they do best: patient care,” says Ric Thompson, managing director at Docman.

Docman tested five Epson scanners, allowing for official accreditation of their compatibility with Docman 7, 8 and 10 of its cloud-based software platforms. They subsequently chose a range of products including the Epson DS-530, DS-770 and DS-860 which will complement Docman’s scanning capabilities and increase the efficiency of the company’s digital transfer of care

Epson’s range of best in class business scanners provide a range of invaluable productivity features for healthcare customers, helping to reduce manual processes by integrating critical paperwork into digital workflows by scanning medical notes and patient updates straight to electronic records.  This helps speed up information sharing, offers multiple security options to keep confidential data safe and minimises time spent filling out forms.

Docman is the leading supplier of advanced electronic document management, workflow and transfer software for primary, secondary and social healthcare organisations. Its technology is responsible for maintaining detailed records and documents for over 40 million patients and managing over three million items of patient correspondence weekly  Docman’s flagship product, Docman 10, is a platform for the future. Accessed entirely through a web browser, it manages inbound clinical correspondence through one-click workflow.

Kevin Dobson, product manager for business scan, Epson UK, says, “With healthcare providers constantly under budget and time restraints, business processes need to be as productive, reliable and affordable as possible.  We’re proud that our range of market leading scanners has been endorsed and selected by Docman to help the NHS support millions of patients across the UK.”

Epson’s market-leading, comprehensive range of business scanners meets the shifting requirements between sectors – enabling the capture of high-quality images and documents as easily and quickly as possible. Its products significantly cut the steps required to capture and store documents, all while supporting a wide range of applications across numerous sectors and business environments.
