IMS MAXIMS will be demonstrating the benefits of their portfolio of user-focused solutions, including innovative dementia software, to a major clinical audience at the Acute and General Medicine conference in London, 27-28th November.
Delegates to the conference, which is expected to attract thousands of senior consultants over the two days, will have the opportunity to speak to representatives of IMS MAXIMS about how they create products and services that are easily adapted to suit each customer.
Furthermore, IMS MAXIMS representatives will be on stand F24 to talk about the organisation’s strong track record of involving healthcare professionals at every stage of the development process, ensuring their needs and those of patients are given the highest priority.
This approach was clearly evident, as IMS MAXIMS customer Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust became one of the first in the country to exceed all its Commissioning Quality for Innovation (CQUIN) targets for dementia care. Using IMS MAXIMS’ dementia software, developed based on The Department of Health’s CQUIN requirements, the trust is now able to more effectively identify patients with dementia and other causes of cognitive impairment to enable a better referral process, reduced length of stays in hospital and effective follow-up care.
Frazer Underwood, associate director of nursing, Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust said: “The high profile of our dementia work in Cornwall means that the ability of IMS MAXIMS to contribute meaningfully to improving services is invaluable. We felt really engaged with IMS MAXIMS throughout the development process; they were driven by patient needs, delivering a system which put clinical requirements first.”
In addition, IMS MAXIMS will also demonstrate its Patient Administration System (PAS), Electronic Patient Record (EPR) and Integrated Care Pathway solutions.
The MAXIMS PAS currently supports more than 11 million patient records in England and a further two million records in Ireland. The system allows healthcare professionals to replace paper-based systems with electronic records that are fast, efficient and accurate, helping both clinical and admin staff work more efficiently while improving patient safety.
The EPR enables a single, complete electronic patient record to be created that contains all relevant information about every aspect of the patient’s care – historic notes, all correspondence, past and future appointments and care detail. Whilst the IMS MAXIMS Integrated Care Pathways allows clinicians to easily co-ordinate multiple care actions in a patient-centered approach, allowing care to be delivered efficiently and as quickly as possible.
Shane Tickell, CEO, IMS MAXIMS added: “The Acute and General Medicine conference provides us with an excellent platform to highlight our dementia module and other software solutions. We are committed to developing systems that support healthcare professionals to safely deliver the right care to patients at the right time. In this way, not only do we contribute to improving outcomes for patients but we also help healthcare organisations as they strive to address the multiple challenges that the NHS faces.”
IMS MAXIMS will be exhibiting on stand F24; delegates are invited to come along to find out more about the company’s current range of clinical healthcare information solutions. For more information on IMS MAXIMS and their products visit: www.imsmaxims.com
