National Spinal Injuries Centre at Stoke Mandeville opts for IMS Maxims Spinal Cord Injuries software

IMS Maxims : 27 September, 2007  (New Product)
Buckinghamshire Hospitals NHS Trust has selected IMS Maxims to provide specialist Spinal Cord Injuries software.
The Maxims Spinal Injuries software has been operating for over two years at South Tees Hospitals NHS Trust. Stoke Mandeville Hospital has been closely watching the implementation and use of the system and has now placed an order for the software.

The Spinal Injuries system is designed to track the spinal injuries patient pathway from the initial event leading to the spinal injury, through inpatient admissions and onwards into outpatients including specialist outpatient appointments such as erectile dysfunction and fertility clinics. The system takes an inter-disciplinary approach, supporting information from medical, nursing, therapists, social workers and psychologists.

The system is delivered with many detailed forms and offers the flexibility to be extended using the site defined structured and graphical assessments functionality. Information is accessible and shared across disciplines, allowing ease of access to all users. Access to relevant entries is rapid, efficient and importantly legible. Summary of the neurological status is immediately available and relevant past medical history is there at the drop of a menu. The system also improves communication within the Inter disciplinary team, during day to day function. Accurate discharge summaries are automatically prepared from operational data, significantly reducing the potential for error and improving completeness. Audit of the services will be significantly improved to the benefit of current and future patients.

David Griffiths, divisional general manager at Stoke Mandeville Hospital said, 'We have taken great interest in developments at South Tees and applaud both the investment and the collaborative venture between James Cook University Hospital and IMS Maxims. Following several visits and discussions with staff at the Golden Jubilee Regional Spinal Injuries Centre at the James Cook University Hospital, we are confident that the system will provide the National Spinal Injuries Centre at Stoke Mandeville with a robust and functionally rich system that will more than meet our current and future needs. We are looking forward to working with IMS MAXIMS to implement the system over the next few months.'

Shane Tickell, head of sales and marketing at IMS Maxims said, “ this is a great example of the new web based Maxims application being used to fully support Clinical Specialist and Multidisciplinary requirements. IMS is delighted to be working with the world renowned specialist Spinal Centre at Stoke Mandeville. The Maxims suite of Clinical and Patient Administration systems are the latest step in ground breaking web based applications that are the corner stone of our cutting edge technology born from our 21 years of ongoing research and development in the healthcare sector”.
