Medisec software’s clinical correspondence system has supported the delivery of electronically-signed hospital letters into GP practice software systems using Healthcare Gateway Limited’s MIG.

BigHand has launched an iPad application called FreeMe, saying it is intended to make it easier and more efficient for GPs, clinicians and medical secretaries to sign off clinical documents. FreeMe gives clinicians a list of documents that require review and approval, and enables them to sign these off and send them to secretaries while they are travelling or away from their desks.17 April 2013
