James Paget University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust selects mediSIGHT as their ophthalmic EMR. Having trialled the cataract module during the National Cataract Audit, the Trust has realised many of the benefits of electronic working and capture of structured data. As such they have now ordered the system for all subspecialties in ophthalmology.
The Royal College of Ophthalmologists (RCOphth) has published their annual report on Cataract Surgery outcomes which evidence clear improvements in care including a 38% reduction in posterior capsular rupture complications. The collaboration between Medisoft and RCOphth has been key to this audit - see below for more.
In line with our commitment to be a responsible employer, Medisoft have achieved the BS 8555:2016 environmental standard. This demonstrates our compliance with legislation and helps to manage our environmental impacts.

The Royal College of Ophthalmologists has published their annual report on Cataract Surgery outcomes, providing invaluable information to support patients in their choice of treatment centre.
The report includes data from 183,812 cataract operations carried out in NHS Cataract Surgical Centres in England and Wales in 2016/17, with the majority of data captured using Medisoft’s Electronic Medical Records system. The system was designed by ophthalmologists to enable paperless working and the rapid audit of clinical outcomes.
The report shows a 30% reduction in the unadjusted Posterior Capsule Rupture (PCR) rate from 2.0% in 2010 to 1.4% in 2016-2017, equating to around 2,500 fewer complications per year suffered during this surgery.
Christian Martin, Managing Director, Medisoft Limited commented, “This unique audit reinforces the huge power of structured data. Reusing routine treatment data for audit and research is essential for the delivery of NHS improvements. The twin challenges of an aging population and better treatments are nowhere more evident than in eye departments. Medisoft is delighted to have been such a key enabler for this project by providing the systems through which these treatment and outcome measures have been collected.”
