Trusted UK provider of advanced nurse call solutions, Wandsworth Healthcare, has entered into a collaboration with DNV Imatis, a leading Scandinavian digital healthcare solutions provider, to help NHS trusts enhance the digital patient journey and deliver more efficient, patient-centred and data-driven healthcare. 

DNV Imatis’ innovative EPR-agnostic digital health solutions are already delivering operational efficiencies for more than 46,000 healthcare professionals in 45 hospitals across Europe, Australia and Canada. Through its intelligent platform, Fundamentum, DNV Imatis assists healthcare organisations in managing patient flows, logistics and overall operational efficiency, empowering them to improve productivity and patient safety.

With the digital maturity of most NHS trusts still remaining low and the pressure to increase operational efficiency mounting, this collaboration aims to leverage Wandsworth’s strong market track record alongside DNV Imatis’ well-proven solutions to support NHS trusts to tackle these challenges. Initially, the collaboration will focus on four core solutions:

Task management to efficiently handle support service assignments
  • Electronic bed capacity management system (eBCMS): present data from multiple sources to give a single view and reduce time gaps between bed availability and patient occupancy
  • Task management: efficient handling of support service assignments that can be integrated with all departments in the hospital, from A&E and wards to cleaning, janitorial and portering departments
  • Alarm management: silently allocate and escalate alarm calls through mobile devices
  • Patient engagement: allow patients to engage in their care using their own mobile devices 

Adam Sherry, Managing Director of the Wandsworth Group, comments: “With NHS trusts under pressure to leverage digital health solutions and demonstrate digital maturity, we’re confident that this forward-thinking collaboration of two leaders in our respective fields will be well received by trusts across the UK. We’re excited about the ways in which this collaboration and DNV Imatis’ state-of-the-art technology can help trusts unlock more capacity to care, advance their digital maturity and, ultimately, enhance the digital patient journey.”  

Johan Folkunger, CEO of DNV Imatis, adds: “Wandsworth Healthcare is a great fit for us, complementing our digital solutions with its strong industry reputation and firm foothold in trusts across the UK. Both companies are fully committed to driving operational efficiency and maximising patient care in the modern healthcare environment. This collaboration marks an important step in the growth of both companies, ensuring we are well-positioned to help trusts embrace the latest digital health solutions and maintain a comprehensive, real-time overview of their operations 24/7/365.”

Efficient handling of support service assignments that can be integrated with all departments

To demonstrate the advanced digital integration capabilities that will result from this collaboration, a new Digital Patient Journey Experience Centre is being developed at Wandsworth’s headquarters in Woking, Surrey. Trusts will be invited to visit the Centre to see, at first hand, the end-to-end process and digital integration features available – from the point of patients arriving at a hospital through to discharge. The Centre will also be available as a venue for industry workshops and seminars.
