NHS Organisations to Access IMS MAXIMS Cloud-Based Services on G Cloud 9 Framework

IMS MAXIMSAward-winning electronic patient record (EPR) provider IMS MAXIMS has announced the availability of its cloud services on the latest iteration of the UK Government's G Cloud Framework. NHS organisations looking for a cost-effective and efficient way to purchase cloud-based solutions that enable their paperless 2020 ambitions, can use G Cloud 9 to access a range of IMS MAXIMS professional implementation services. To support the successful deployment of their EPR, openMAXIMS, the company is offering configuration, benefits realisation, data migration, project management, software testing and staff training on the Framework. Implemented together, this approach to healthcare transformation can enable Trusts to deploy an EPR system in 6 to 12 months, rather than the 18 to 24 months typically needed.

IMS MAXIMS appointment to G Cloud 9 is one of several achievements in recent months. Last month they were awarded a place on the NHS Clinical and Digital Information Systems Framework and earlier in the year, their specialist services were re-listed on the recently updated Government Framework for Digital Outcomes and Specialists (DOS). The company has been involved in the G Cloud Framework since it was established in 2012.

"NHS organisations looking to advance their digital journey and meet Government’s paperless aspirations can now access our support services across a variety of Government Frameworks," said CEO of IMS MAXIMS, Shane Tickell.

He added, "G Cloud 9 is the latest Framework that gives NHS customers an alternative, more effective route to buying digital services, helping them avoid lengthy OJEU procurement processes that can often constrain buying decisions. At a time when the health system so desperately needs to reap the benefits of technology, we think this Framework is vitally important to the NHS and UK plc."

NHS organisations wanting to deploy IMS MAXIMS full suite of patient information and clinical software solutions - which is available on an open source basis - can access it without a license fee via software development platform, GitHub.

Notable use of openMAXIMS in the NHS has been widely publicised. The company's partnership with Taunton and Somerset NHS Foundation Trust, helped the organisation to become a Global Digital Exemplar last year, recognised by Government for its innovative digital offering. Similar transformation programmes are underway elsewhere in the country, including Blackpool Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Wye Valley NHS Trust and Ramsay Healthcare.
