The One Health Alliance Launched

The launch of The One Health Alliance has been recently announced. Composed of eight member companies this alliance has been established to offer an alternative approach to the delivery of technology and information solutions to both public and private healthcare organisations.

This launch comes after several months consultation between member companies whose combined experience means the Alliance can deliver an umbrella of services and solutions to match all the technology needs demanded by today's global healthcare providers. Initially the Alliance's solution set is aimed at healthcare clients in Europe, Middle East and African markets (EMEA).

Commenting John Smith, Chairman One Health Alliance explains: "With so many issues and demands now being placed on healthcare providers one of the underlying objectives of the Alliance is to help ease this pressure by providing a 'one-stop-shop' single point of advice that takes away the risk and challenges of dealing with multiple suppliers."

"When commissioning an IT system, healthcare providers are faced with a time consuming and complex process. Having to deal with a number of different suppliers can magnify the issue. The One Health Alliance helps to effectively alleviate this problem."

The Alliance brings together best of breed technologies from companies that have a proven track record of success within healthcare IT. Collectively no other group can offer such depth and breadth of relevant experience. The group's understanding of the issues and challenges facing healthcare means that it can deliver a powerful set of solutions to support the future evolution of healthcare needs. By working in partnership the Alliance can help all types of healthcare provider organisations improve financial, operational and clinical efficiency.

Smith adds: "What's key is that all members products are based on current industry standards and standardised interfaces to enable interoperability between the solutions being offered. For the healthcare provider this means they will get a single set of connected solutions to remove the problem of dealing with multiple suppliers, integrating multiple systems."

The One Health Alliance members work together on a philosophy based on partnership, collaboration and mutual trust and aims to share this approach when working with customers. However, the Alliance partnership is not exclusive and healthcare providers can still maintain the benefits of having a direct relationship with each of the member companies if required.

Members of the One Health Alliance include:

  • Ardentia - providers of business intelligence solutions and web-based information management tools
  • Clinical Solutions - a supplier of intelligent and flexible evidence-based decision support and clinical software solutions
  • Lawson Software - providers of Enterprise Resource Planning software applications
  • Perceptive Software - developers of enterprise document management, imaging and workflow software
  • SciQuest - a provider of procurement automation and supplier enablement solutions
