DevelopIQ has scooped yet another award for its work with
Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust. The TechWorld Award for Mobile
Working Project of the Year was awarded to DevelopIQ at an evening
awards ceremony in the Central London on June
The Trust's midwives use Digital Pen and Paper technology combined with BlackBerry smartphones to take notes during consultations with expectant mothers out in the community - a simple solution that has helped the trust create a projected annual saving of £220,000. The midwives use the Digital Pen to fill out the patients' maternity notes, which are then automatically updated on the maternity unit's digital patient records system.
Commenting on the award, Robert Bakewell, CEO, said "We are thrilled by the recognition and high profile that Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust has had for the digital pen solution we designed and implemented for their midwifery team. We are working hard to extend the very significant cost savings generated by Portsmouth to maternity teams across the wider NHS and this latest award from TechWorld will only help to maintain the momentum of this initiative. Thank you to all at TechWorld".
