Kent pathologists roll out document management

John-Paul Kamath

The East Kent Pathology Network (EKPN) is planning to implement a new document management application from Kofax to improve patient care.

“The software will streamline requests through our pathology environment,” said Dai Davies, pathology manager for East Kent Hospitals NHS Trust.

The Trust plans to use the software to improve the way it manages incoming pathology specimen request forms – regardless of type and format – as well as reduce the cost of human errors associated with manual document management.

For example, EKPN will benefit from the package’s automatic document separation feature, which eliminates the need to insert separator sheets and can help to reduce costs related to printing separator sheets, such as paper, ink and toner.

“Paper-intensive operations are increasingly demanding the successful marriage of paper within electronic-based business environments,” said Rob Klatell, CEO of Kofax’s parent company, Dicom.
