Healthcare Innovations

The NHS is challenged to deliver modern effective healthcare in an age of severe financial constraints and an increasing social IT awareness and increasing public expectations.

Patients, Carers and NHS professionals expect and require innovation.

Over recent years national solutions have been aspired to and rarely delivered in part due to the complexity of the infrastructure underpinning, and the ability to be secure and accurate solutions.

Significant progress has been made in terms of a national secure network and the adoption of industry standard protocols and topologies for security, communications and programming languages.

Working with multiple vendors and users to specify, select and implement integrated solutions.

Our experience as healthcare professionals and patient representatives enable us to work closely with customers and prospective systems suppliers to provide advice and assurance of the needs of the client and the delivery of working solutions.
