VITALHUB ANNOUNCES MULTI YEAR LICENSING CONTRACT WITH NHS HIGHLANDS
Vitalhub Corp. has signed a multiyear licensing agreement of subsidiary Intouch With Health's digital, at-home preop solutions, Synopsis Home and Synopsis iQ, to the NHS Highlands.
NHS Highlands is a new Vitalhub customer and has signed a multiyear licensing agreement to access the company's award-winning Synopsis Home and Synopsis iQ.
The award-winning Synopsis platform allows hospitals to manage the entire preoperative assessment from initial questionnaire through to postoperative outcomes digitally, removing paper trail, increasing data security and delivering significant organizational benefits -- including very clear economic benefits.
NHS Highland is one of the 14 regions of NHS Scotland. Geographically, it is the largest health board, covering an area of 32,500 square kilometres (12,500 square miles) from Kintyre in the southwest to Caithness in the northeast, serving a population of 320,000 people. It provides prehospital care, primary care and secondary care services. Raigmore Hospital covers the majority of medical and surgical specialties and is the cancer treatment centre for the Highlands and Western Isles.
As a result of implementations of Synopsis solutions, fewer patients are required to attend hospital for a preoperative assessment, improving patient throughput while freeing up staff resources and clinical time. Staff are thereby able to spend more clinical time with high-risk patients, improving resource utilization and the efficiency of care delivery. Providing the opportunity to better educate patients on presurgery and postsurgery care, Synopsis contributes to reductions in postsurgery readmissions, promoting improved patient convenience and accessibility to care. Finally, the Synopsis solutions will help NHS Highlands improve its elective care backlog, enabling departments to cope with booking and managing additional surgeries required to clear its backlog.
"We are delighted to further increase our presence across Scotland as we partner with NHS Highlands," said Dan Matlow, chief executive officer of Vitalhub. "We appreciate the ongoing market ratification and demonstration of our leadership across patient flow and operational visibility solutions. We look forward to continuing to support our customers as we scale across the U.K. and beyond, helping health systems accommodate their growing demands and needs."
Raigmore Hospital (454 beds) covers the majority of medical and surgical specialties and is the cancer treatment centre for the Highlands and Western Isles.
