Our latest postings from the blogosphere, Twitter, and across the Internet linked in to our news page is now live.
While try to find the prettiest way of presenting this to you without it all looking a mess, we'll leave you with the maxim 'less is more'.
A blast from the past. A random selection of news headlines from our last 5 years of updates are on show below while we revamp how we keep everyone up to date with the World-of-Waba.
Stay tuned, because we think it's time sites said goodbye to tired 'News' pages and came up with a far fresher way of letting you in on the latest.

Waba’s new Mobile App isn’t designed to replace Medical Photography, but to enhance the service. Using our secure App means clinicians can take a photo of a burns victim at 02.00am on a Saturday morning. It will confirm the patient details via PAS, and after getting consent off the patient, the Photo and data can be directly uploaded to Waba MIM. Nobody need worry about the patient’s photo remaining on the device or cloud storage as the photo and data are wiped from the device after upload. It’s a simple and secure workflow that ensures the integrity of the patient data and photo whilst protecting the clinician and Trust. When the time is right to call in Medical Photography a professional clinical photo can then be taken for the patient’s notes.
We know that out of hours cameras aren’t being used efficiently, if at all. Most of the time the ward staff are too busy to ensure that the camera’s battery is fully charged, never mind checking to see if the last batch of photos have been uploaded to MIM, and who knows when patient A’s photos finish and patient B’s start? Using the Waba Mobile App will ensure this is no longer a problem. It’s great for the here and now clinical photo when Medical Photography aren’t available.
If you would like more information on our new Mobile App, please do not hesitate to contact us.

This means that a project and on-going support can be funded by a monthly payment over a pre-agreed term.
The MSA allows the acquisition of the solution to be met from revenue expenditure and allows an immediate payback from the savings and efficiencies gained.
Institutions where the VAT reclaim on capital expenditure is an issue, may benefit from savings as the whole solution is delivered as a service provision on which the VAT is reclaimable
Should additional modules or users be required during the agreement term these can be managed within the existing agreement thereby removing any potential demands on capital expenditure.
