How can I afford to digitise when our organisation has other priorities?
Team IMS is often asked this question by healthcare providers.
With limited funding, staff and resources, we know how difficult it can be for Trusts to rationalise an investment in technology.
As an EPR vendor, we have a duty to all of our customers to help provide an effective business case to answer this question: to explain why digital is part of the solution in tackling unprecedented service demands, staff shortages and ongoing financial constraints facing the health system.
It’s why we have published our latest report, The ‘MAXIMS’ Digital Hospital – Releasing Time to Care.
We have sought to provide Trusts with information that will help them build a compelling business case that clearly illustrates the benefits that can be realised from implementing an EPR, in the context of the challenges facing the NHS.
And acknowledging Robert Wachter’s productivity-paradox, we can show the periodic financial improvements that take place from year one and across the duration of the digital transformation programme.
Digitisation has to become part of a Trust-wide transformation programme, and we must take a shared risk to make it affordable.
We can provide Trusts with the benefits realisation and financial options, allowing the flexibility for payments to be made as a percentage of cash-releasing rewards, or for Trusts to fund suppliers from the resulting enhanced performance of the hospital.
