IMS MAXIMS was last night highly commended at the prestigious EHI Awards 2015 for its pioneering open source software, openMAXIMS.

Judges from the awards, which rewards excellence in IT, singled out the health technology provider for its nomination within the healthcare IT product innovation category.

openMAXIMS, an open-source version of the full MAXIMS suite, including its full electronic patient record (EPR) and patient administration system (PAS) was released to the NHS in June 2014 – marking a substantial step in providing NHS organisations with the opportunity to access software and tailor it to the needs of clinicians and other healthcare professionals.

The solution has since gone from strength-to-strength and is currently being deployed at Wye Valley NHS Trust and Ramsay Healthcare. The praise from the judging panel follows yet another milestone for IMS MAXIMS after the launch of the UK’s first live open source electronic patient record this week at Taunton and Somerset NHS Trust.

Leesa Ewing, commercial director at IMS MAXIMS, commented: “This commendation is a reflection of the team’s hard work and dedication over the past few years. The open source approach is very much aligned with our organisation’s philosophy – developing the best clinical software possible through collaboration with healthcare professionals, developers and partners to help make the NHS safer and more efficient.”

The awards ceremony, which was attended by more than 600 people, was held at the Park Plaza hotel, Westminster.
