Anoto Develops and Deploys an eHealth Solution to the Gwent Frailty Consortium
Apr 2 14
Anoto announced that it has built a custom Community Resource Team (CRT) portal for the Gwent Frailty Consortium, comprising of Aneurin Bevan University Health Board (ABUHB) and five local councils in Wales namely Monmouthshire, Torfaen, Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly and Newport. The new portal supports multiagency teams providing care under the Gwent Frailty Programme, which supports over 600,000 people in South Wales and is currently used by 300 carers; with the potential to rollout to 9,000 carers, doctors, hospitals and non-clinical staff to build a patient-centric solution with a complete, auditable log of care received by a patient. Gwent Frailty Consortium’s community based teams were already using Anoto’s digital writing technology to capture key information from its patients, which allowed the nursing team to leave the original record with the patient and spend more time with them, as opposed to travelling back and to the office between patient visits. Following the successful pen deployment in Gwent, the Frailty Consortium in partnership with Anoto further developed a custom CRT portal, which would form a basis of a true eHealth and eSocial care system. Gwent Frailty Consortium’s previous portal was a prototype and lacked the resilience and performance to support the enterprise and therefore it wanted to develop a new bespoke solution to improve the user experience. The new portal – developed by Anoto Ltd. in the UK – allows hospital staff and community care teams to securely access patient’s care history and update it in real-time, using Anoto’s digital pen technology. All care episodes are recorded against a single patient record; providing the team with a log of episodes of care received by any patient, with community care teams being able to manage their diaries through their smartphones. Due to the mobile element, care teams are able to refer patients to colleagues, accept appointments whilst in the field and access all the patient information as and when needed.
Bogota Police Department Reduces Administrative Overhead with Anoto's Anoto Live™ Technology
Feb 12 14
Anoto announced that Colombia’s Bogota Police Department will equip 400 traffic police officers with Anoto Live™ digital writing solutions in order to automate time consuming administrative tasks associated with traffic tickets and accident reports. The system to be used by Bogota’s traffic administration (Secretaria de Movilidad de Bogota) will be deployed by Anoto’s platinum partner Habitual Data. Under the existing workflow, police officers have filled in the traffic fines with regular pens and paper forms. Once filled, it takes several days before the ticket information is entered into the local government’s computer system. Using Anoto digital writing in combination with mobile phones, officers will be able to send fines and accident reports directly to the computer system for immediate processing, effectively reducing the processing time from days to seconds. The department expects to see a return on investment (ROI) from its investment in Anoto digital writing solution within 12 months. There is also potential to expand the roll out to a further 1,000 traffic officers in the city of Bogota. The Anoto digital writing solution is also used by 4,000 frontline police officers at the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI)  to reduce administrative tasks when recording witness statements, marking the deployment in Bogota a further proof point of Anoto technology as an effective data capture solution for the law enforcement industry.
