Why should I scan my Lloyd George notes? How the digitisation of your Lloyd George records can streamline your patient care operations

Why should I scan my Lloyd George notes? How the digitisation of your Lloyd George records can streamline your patient care operations

With the NHS prioritising digital transformation, and many General Practices beginning their digitisation process in the next few years, we have compiled a few undeniable benefits of digitising your Lloyd George records to make the process of digitising decades worth of records feel a bit less overwhelming.

1. To reduce the danger of misplaced, stolen, or damaged records.

Whilst documents exist in hard format alone, they are always at risk of loss, theft, or damage. With LG notes containing sensitive patient information, this significantly increases the risks to compliance which could make it difficult to meet legal requirements. By digitising documents, the single point of failure is removed as documents can be securely stored and backed up to ensure they are never at risk of permanent loss. 

2. Free up space.

Having digital access to your records frees up valuable space and makes the practice more agile. This space can be utilised more efficiently, perhaps for more rooms with an opportunity to upscale your operations. 

3. Make better care decisions by gaining immediate, digital access to your patients' medical history. 

In the case of a medical emergency, there may not be any time to locate a patient's file in an archive room. With digital access, you can locate the record to your screen within seconds in order to make better care decisions for your patients and offer a quick and improved service to patients. Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software can help to reduce this time even more, allowing you to text search for keywords within the PDF to locate the information required. 

 

Are you a General Practice with a digitisation project in mind? We are currently working with various General Practices all over the UK looking to digitise their records. Contact one of our team today for a free onsite audit. We are available at your convenience for a Teams/Zoom call to discuss your requirements. We can even collect directly from your practice and pack your records ourselves, you don't need to lift a finger.
