Healthcare Solutions

EDM Group is a trusted provider of digital Information Management services to the NHS and Private Healthcare providers.
We have undertaken some of the largest and most challenging medical-record digitisation projects over the past few decades. We effectively transform the way patient care is delivered by making patient records available to healthcare professionals whenever they are needed. By improving access to patient data internal processes become more streamlined and costs benefits realised, freeing up valuable space previously taken up by paper documents.

Healthcare Challenges

Legislation is driving the need for a digital healthcare service.
The healthcare industry is facing monumental changes brought on by an aging population, increasing regulation, such as GDPR, as well as rapid advances in technology. As healthcare organisations look to respond to emerging challenges and opportunities, technology will increasingly play a critical role in key areas such as improved co-ordination of care through secure exchange of data, online availability and access to information and key services; and the handling of patient information safely and securely.
How can you ensure your organisation is prepared to meet these challenges?
