UK hospitals experience the benefits of 6PM’s intelligent file tracking

The efficient and effective management of medical records within any hospital is a substantial business critical task. Between 2012 and 2013, 6PM successfully launched iFIT™ (intelligent File and Inventory Tracking) within various NHS Trust Hospitals in the UK.

The return on investment by NHS Trust Hospitals was quickly realized and demand for 6PM’s business solution increased substantially. iFIT allows hospitals to better manage their medical records through RFID technology and its integration with other systems such as Patient Administration Systems. This is where 6PM maximized its NHS business knowledge and technical system integration expertise in order to bring together a solution made up of various devices such as RFID guns, Smart Badges and Android mobiles working in harmony with a third party back end system to provide one fully integrated solution.

In line with 6PM’s business strategy, in 2014 a major investment program of works was undertaken. Having gained additional expertise in medical records management within the NHS, it became clear that for 6PM to be more effective and continually improve its business solution, the third party back end application needed to be developed by 6PM for enhanced and quicker turn- around of extended customer requirements.

Following an intensive development program, 6PM completed the new iFIT2 back end application thereby eliminating the third party supplier from its total solution. In the last quarter of 2014, a migration programme was initiated and current live NHS Trust Hospitals running 6PM’s iFIT solution started to migrate to its new iFIT2 business solution with many new and improved features.

Following the successful migration to iFIT2, Philip Stone, Medical Records Manager at Surrey and Sussex NHS Trust Hospital commented “The new functionality around the display of search results has made a big difference for us and also improves the overall look and feel of iFIT”.

Peter Bugeja, Customer Success Director at 6PM said “ Whilst 6PM continues to focus on delivering customer success by ensuring our customers derive the business benefits from our solutions, iFIT2 is also testimony of 6PM’s determination to improve its products and providing enhanced value to its stakeholders in line with its’ Business Strategy”.
