  No more paper

The pain of the handwritten record is removed. K2MS Athena is the FIRST ever maternity system to achieve a truly paperless implementation. Athena collects all notes from the entire pregnancy pathway electronically and so can provide all patient information to healthcare professionals effortlessly at just the touch of a button.

  Captured once

Maternity clinical data is captured once, and once only, contemporaneously at the point of care during the patient interaction, even in emergency situations. There is no need to rely on retrospective entry away from the patient. Athena facilitates the patient consultation, captures the interaction and helps plan future care.

  Seamless data

Developed entirely by K2 Medical Systems, Athena™ uses a single database and, by linking seamlessly with medical device equipment, offers a continuous system. No joins or gaps in the data and no internal interfacing. An obstetric risk management system offering a complete solution to patient data capture, Governance and learning.


Invaluable for data capture, efficient auditing, freeing resource and improving patient safety, Athena is fully customisable to local requirements and has been proven to help Trusts realise their full potential in Governance, management of care and the appropriate reimbursement for the services they provide. K2MS Athena is the complete solution.

  • Data captured is reliable and complete because it is the clinical record, not duplicated entry.

  • As a single data source, clinical time saved on data duplication and data validation.

  • Dashboards, reports, audits, National Maternity Datasets are immediately available from a single source.

  • Poor outcomes, near misses, any specific clinical events or combination of events are automatically triggered.


Powerful interfaces allow Athena to link with key dependant hospital systems, including PAS, Radiology, Pathology, Neonatology

Athena interfaces to NHS Digital services, including NHS Digital Birth Notifications, Maternity Data Set and Safeguarding services

Remote Connectivity

K2MS technology provides a powerful link between hospital and community. Using a secure internet connection, Athena can be accessed from anywhere in the world via phone, tablet, laptop or PC using any wired, wireless, 3G, 4G or GPRS network.

If no internet connection is available notes can be downloaded in encrypted form, modified offline, and then synchronised with the master notes once an internet connection is re-established.

Secure internet connections means for the first time pregnant women are now able to access their own ‘hand-held’ notes via the internet using PC, laptop or mobile device.

Reports and Analysis

The capture of the electronic medical record by Athena is a fundamental requirement but equally important is the ability to analyse and report on the information collected.

K2 have developed an impressive report generating engine. Any report can be constructed for:

  •   Audit
  •   Governance
  •   Process Improvements
  •   Clinical Research
  •   Management Control

A single database, developed by a single supplier. Seamless system. Seamless care and reporting
