We have over 12 years’ experience working in the independent care sector and started the development of the e-MDS service over 7 years ago. That initial work allowed our first customer to save over £1 million by not having to implement a clinical records system to satisfy their NHS Reporting obligations.
We have now built up a great team that has allowed us to develop and improve the service whilst supporting the data collection and reporting requirements of over 70 different inpatient units. We provide e-MDS to some of the largest mental health care providers and we look after over 10,000 service user records.
80% of the MHSDS submissions made by the independent sector to the HSCIC are generated using e-MDS. Our Customers were (again) the first providers to submit the MHSDS.
We are members of the Technical User Group, who discuss the introduction of changes and additions to central data submissions; a forum chaired by the HSCIC in Leeds consisting a cross section of members from service providers, system suppliers, through to NHS England and the CQC.
We provide active support to our customers in many other areas to ensure compliance. We run IG Toolkit workshops to help organisations with the development and submission of the toolkit. We conduct Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery reviews, IT-infrastructure assessments and provide advice on the process to obtain an N3 connection.
Our Directors’ background is in Project Management. That means that if you decide to use e-MDS, the implementation process will be well planned, quick and effective.
In our view you are not buying merely a tool, but something to help you ensure you are compliant with applicable regulations and contractual requirements, whilst running a successful and profitable business. That is the main driver for our service provision, as your success, becomes our success.
