A digital transformation initiative between Lancashire & South Cumbria Integrated Care System & BridgeHead Software
Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care System (L&SC) teamed up with BridgeHead Software during the summer months to innovate and develop a digital solution to streamline and scale the end-to-end COVID-19 testing process. Initially focused on lab-based pathology antibody tests on patient blood samples, this has since expanded to encapsulate new COVID-19 testing workflows, such as point of care antibody testing and LAMP90 antigen testing, as well as evaluating its use for the impending vaccination program and other point of care and laboratory testing beyond COVID-19.
In this webinar, you will learn how L&SC is digitally transforming its manually-intensive testing process to accelerate COVID-19 testing operations, at scale, using BridgeHead’s HiPRES™ (Health Imaging Patient Record Exchange Service). You will also learn how HiPRES leverages mobile data and image capture technology and BridgeHead’s award-winning HealthStore® solution to securely consolidate, store, protect and share the clinical and administrative data associated with tests. This includes barcode scanning, patient validation, consent, and demographic updates; to offer real-time results (via integration with L&SC’s core systems), negate the need for repeat testing, and create a digital audit trail.
