CFH Docmail Secures GPSoC IT Services Framework Agreement

Hybrid Mail specialists, CFH Docmail, has secured a new agreement with the GP Systems of Choice (GPSoC), as part of its Lot 2 Additional GP IT Services Framework. CFH Docmail, which has already helped its medical sector clients save over £6million.

The Lot 2 framework agreement enables local organisations, including general practices and CCG’s to procure additional software, hardware and professional services, complementary to those already available under Lot 1. The Lot 2 catalogue will be published in December 2014 and will be accompanied by ‘how to buy’ guidance to support local organisations in ordering services.

CFH Docmail has been approved to supply four distinct services under the agreement; ROVa, Docmail, Dotpost, and Docmail Plus. ROVa is an innovative new application that enables medical record access and facilitates communication between patients and clinicians. Docmail is a print and mail software solution for patient communications and Dotpost allows patients to receive communications via their own secure digital mailbox. Docmail Plus integrates all three solutions with the Principal Clinical System.

There are already 3,000 medical and healthcare providers, CCG’s, Hospitals and NHS Trusts across the UK who enjoy using the Docmail print and mail service, which helps them save endless hours printing and stuffing envelopes and thousands of pounds on stationery and stamps every year.

The Docmail solution has allowed medical practices to send over 10 million important documents - including appointment reminders and clinic notices – at a fraction of the cost of traditional mass mailings.

Martin’s Oak Surgery, a small practice in East Sussex, has been using Docmail for the last two years, and for Practice Manager, Carey Sinclair, the difference it’s made to their practice is significant:

“Docmail has saved money, staff hours and elbow grease and once we learned how to format the documents and spreadsheets, it really was plain sailing.

“I would estimate we have literally saved days in staff time, and therefore hundreds of pounds using Docmail for large runs – it’s much more efficient than the more traditional method. For example, using it for our flu campaign alone saved over £800 and by using EMIS Web searches we can save even more. We are glad to have discovered Docmail - and we believe that other medical practices should benefit from it too.”

CFH Docmail Managing Director, Dave Broadway, says:

“We are delighted to have secured a contract as part of the GPSoC supplier framework and that our solutions have been recognised as a valuable asset to the medical sector. As the only supplier offering these types of print and mail services, it demonstrates that the communications solutions we have worked hard to develop are valuable, credible and fit-for-purpose.

“In fact, are now the number one provider of mailing services to the medical and health services sector, with a 25% share of the Hybrid Mail market, and we are continuing to grow.

“Whether used alone, or as part of a patient management system, our patient communications solutions can make life considerably easier for admin staff, at a time when every minute and every penny matters.”
