Technology Boost for Health and Social Care Organisations as Orion Health Secures Place on Major NHS Framework

Orion HealthHealth and social care organisations aiming to be fully compliant with the government’s Personalised Health and Care 2020 plan, can now access electronic health record (EHR) and healthcare integration technologies faster as Orion Health has secured places in five lots on the £1.3bn Clinical and Digital Information Systems (CDIS) Framework.

NHS London Procurement Partnership (LPP) launched the framework in December 2016 to help streamline the procurement of technology, such as EHR systems, integration and interoperable digital tools. This will support medical staff in gaining accelerated access to vital data and information whenever and wherever they are needed in order to deliver safer and more efficient care.

Securing places in five lots, Orion Health scored highly in each including: Interoperability and Interfacing (Lot 3.5), Clinical and Patient Portal (Lot 3.6), Informatics and Reporting (Lot 3.7), Medication Management (Lot 4.4) and Patient Workflow (Lot 4.6) where it met 100% of the evaluation criteria.

The success in the patient workflow lot builds on Orion Health's strong track record in deploying its Coordinate platform across the UK. The solution is live in various forms across 4 sites in the UK including Northern Ireland. The solution leverages rich clinical data to enable patient-centric care through better decision-making. It enables shared care planning and the creation of clinical pathways for specific conditions, for example, diabetes. Coordinate's functionality can be integrated with other Orion Health solutions in areas such as medicines reconciliation and patient engagement to further improve outcomes.

Gary Birks, general manager UK & Ireland at Orion Health, said: "By supporting more accurate and more efficient sharing of clinical information, we can enable healthcare providers and their partner organisations to reduce unnecessary duplication of clinical effort and save precious time for frontline staff to help meet today’s clinical safety and efficiency challenges."

Orion Health's established Rhapsody Integration Engine provides interoperability between healthcare systems, enabling connected solutions in less time and at a lower cost. It is currently deployed in over 70 organisations across the UK and is an underpinning component of the technology behind Northern Ireland’s national Integrated Care Record, where over 1.1m unique patient records have been accessed since July 2013.

LPP's CDIS framework, which has a potential value of up to £1.3bn, has been developed at the request of the London NHS Chief Information Officers' Council and the consortia of 38 NHS trusts which built the first Clinical Information Systems Framework in conjunction with LPP in 2013.

James Ormonde, sales director for England at Orion Health, added: "The CDIS framework builds on the success of LPP’s previous framework, which saved tens of millions of pounds on electronic health record and procurement costs for NHS trusts. The approach to standardising contracts to save time and resource for public sector organisations is certainly welcomed as it will help accelerate access to products and services that can digitally transform care environments for the better."
