Over 100,000 hospital records to be made digital

Noble's Hospital is to start digitising more than 100,000 health and maternity records.

The paper records will be scanned and converted into electronic records which can be quickly accessed by those who need to see the information.

The process will get underway in March, and it's expected around 70,000 sheets of paper will be scanned each day, with the whole process taking around 15 months.

UK-based company MISL will lead the project with support from local firm Manx Business Solutions.
