Advanced Health & Care Achieves ITK Accreditation

Advanced Health & CareAdvanced Health & Care (Advanced), a leading provider of IT management systems for the health and care sectors, has achieved the ITK (Interoperability Toolkit) accreditation from the Department of Health (DH). Advanced gained the accreditation for its leading clinical patient management system, Adastra.

The ITK was developed by NHS Connecting for Health (CfH) and is a collection of specifications, implementation guides and related documents to bring consistency to system integration within the NHS.

The accreditation of Adastra means that it has successfully met CfH's criteria for system interoperability, providing NHS bodies with the reassurance that Adastra effectively works with other IT solutions.

The Adastra system has been designed specifically for out of hours, urgent and unscheduled care across the UK. The system is highly versatile and can deal with a vast range of community-level activities.

Jim Chase, Managing Director of Advanced Health & Care says, "Achieving ITK compliance for Adastra is another string to our bow, providing NHS bodies with confidence in the interoperability of the system. As Adastra is able to talk to other IT solutions, this enables the NHS to streamline services and improve efficiencies, maximising the value of their IT investments."

Advanced's Adastra system is the system of choice for organisations across the UK and Ireland including GP out-of-hours services; NHS 111 services; walk-in centres; urgent care centres; minor injuries units and community nursing teams. NHSScotland is the latest trust to have implemented the system across all 22 of its health boards.
