Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (NHFT) is the main provider of mental health, learning disability, sexual health and drug and alcohol services for a population of around 700,000 living in Northamptonshire.

The impending move from the Princess Marina Hospital site, due to take place by the end of July 2011 was the catalyst for the Trust looking to implement electronic document management. With over 56,500 patient records (approximately 17 million images) to remove from the site, the Trust decided to issue a tender for document scanning through the Buying Solutions channel. This route to tender was chosen because of the tight timescales and the need to identify an experienced supplier swiftly. This programme of work will help the Trust to realise one of the key strategic objectives to eliminate paper based records and complement the Trust's primary clinical system, ePquired experience and assurance to complete this piece of work."
