Guildford, Surrey, England and Lund, Sweden – February 8th, 2016 - Destiny Wireless, a part of the Anoto Group AB, today announced that The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust (RWT) is making an additional £0.5 million investment in the INKWRX™ data capture platform. The deal allows for the integration of INKWRX data capture technology for an additional three years, continuing an implementation that began in 2010. INKWRX has been a critical element of RWT’s patient data management procedures, facilitating acute care and other health services in the West Midlands region of the United Kingdom, consisting of more than 800 beds and 8,000 care professionals.
“The decision by RWT to choose INKWRX as central part of their strategy for patient information capture within their community teams underlines its relevance and versatility to address efficiency and patient care challenges within England’s National Health Service,” states Edward Belgeonne, Founder and CEO, Destiny Wireless. “We continue to see increasing levels of interest from RWT in INKWRX’s capabilities for patient data capture and see this as one of our key growth areas over the next few years.”
Using INKWRX, RWT is able to free up time for patient care – around one patient per day for each member of clinical staff – by reducing administration time and cost through fast, automated data entry. Digitization of health records through Anoto enabled electronic forms eliminates the filing, storage and shredding of paper copies, significantly enhancing service planning capabilities and ensuring patient records are quickly updated and accurate.
Simon Parton, Head of Software Services at RWT said “We are delighted with the partnership that has developed between Destiny and RWT over the years and the real business benefits we have secured using INKWRX™.”
INKWRX is a key component of a transition to a new underlying patient database system at RWT. It also is a key part of RWT’s strategy to meet its obligations under the UK government’s CIP (Cost Improvement Programme) and QIPP (Quality, Innovation, Productivity and Prevention) agenda, the purpose of which is to improve the quality and delivery of National Health Service (NHS) care while reducing costs and reinvesting the resulting savings back into healthcare provision. RWT is also able to show compliance with NHS England’s new Digital Maturity Index.
Stein Revelsby, CEO of Anoto, adds, “it is great to see such a valued client renewing their contract after having successfully improved their business performance using Anoto technology. We’re coming up on a decade of partnership that has improved how patient care services are delivered, and we look forward to many more years ahead.”
