EDT enables GP practices to receive documents directly from hospitals electronically without the need for manual attachment or scanning.
If additional information is sent with the document (known as 'meta-data') it can be used to automatically identify patient and document details without user intervention.
Processing documents via EDT saves considerable time compared with manual handling of documents, resulting in greatly improved communications between the hospitals and GPs.
EDT is able to collect from multiple message streams enabling practices to receive from multiple document sources in the same trust or from neighbouring trusts. No matter how many streams a practice collects from, all documents are delivered to Docman. This is convenient both in practical terms for the clinician and from an audit/clinical governance point of view.
