Health Informatics News

Digitalhealth.net is reporting that Blackpool teaching hospitals NHS Foundation Trust will deploy the Open Source IMS Maxims software:

Steven Bloor, the trust’s chief information officer, told Digital Health News: “Our existing PAS is the Hearts PAS and it is 25 years old.

“We will be sad to see it go, because it is very stable and reliable, but the new openMaxims PAS is browser-based and much more modern and flexible.”

Bloor said he expected to see three benefits from the direction the trust is now pursuing. “The first is cost,” he said. “We expect the total cost of ownership over the lifetime of the project to be much lower than pursuing the traditional, proprietary route.

“The second is flexibility. We expect to get input into the code. The third is control. We will have get control over the releases that we deploy.”

He also said he expected to see specific benefits from being part of the CIC.

“We can work with other organisations to make decisions on where the code goes, instead of being dependent on the supplier,” he said.

“We have been talking to Taunton since it decided to go with IMS Maxims. We are also talking to Wye Valley, which is a smaller trust, but interesting to us because it runs community services, which we do as well.”
