It is important that third-party medical applications can download patient demographic data from the hospital's main Patient Administration System (PAS).
Many Hospitals want the endoscopy reports to be available on their Electronic Patient Record (EPR) or other similar external systems.
Unisoft’s generic Open Export Utility allows reports created by Unisoft’s Endoscopy Reporting Tools to be exported automatically to these external systems in a wide variety of fully configurable formats.
Unisoft Medical Systems is based in Enfield Middlesex. Its financial holding company - Unisoft Computers Ltd - was set up by Steve Rainey, a computer programmer of then some 15 years experience, in September 1994 and began trading the following January.
The first product - The Bronchoscopy System - was written by Steve Rainey to a specification drawn up by Dr Simon Hanley, Consultant Chest Physician at North Manchester General Hospital. The original specification was sufficiently robust that the software required little modification in order to support the lung cancer core data sets that began appearing in the late 90's and the product was rebranded as Unisoft's Lung Cancer Management System in 1997.
Development of Unisoft's GI Reporting Tool began in 1996 and was beta tested the following year at the Glenfield Hospital in Leicester.
Both products are continually being developed and enhanced to support current practices within the specialties.
All applications are designed and written in-house - the programmers themselves answer calls to the help desk.
The products are constantly being kept up to date with Latest Developments within each specialty.
Unisoft is very receptive to hospitals' special needs and users can discuss their requirements with the development team.

Unisoft acknowledges that a Trust's IM&T resources are there to support the major hospital-wide systems. Therefore if Unisoft users encounter problems with their application they are prompted to
call the Unisoft help desk first.
As all applications are designed and written in-house calls to the help desk are answered by the programmers themselves.
This ensures users receive prompt high quality support and advise.
There is nothing Unisoft does not know about its applications, and in 95% of the cases all issues
are resolved within the one call. Only if the problem is outside the control of Unisoft, such as a network failure, will the user be referred to the hospital's IM&T help desk.
