Advanced to drive forward digital health transformation

CDIS Award

Leading software and services provider Advanced, has been awarded a place on the new Clinical & Digital Information Systems Framework Agreement (CDIS), launched by NHS London Procurement Partnership (LPP). The framework includes Advanced’s software solution for the health and care sector, its hosted patient management solution Carenotes, which covers all aspects of community, mental and child healthcare.

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. More information on the framework is available here.

“Securing a place on this important NHS purchasing framework is significant as it demonstrates that our solutions meet the demanding criteria set by the NHS LPP. We know that these frameworks maximise the purchasing power of the NHS and represent a smart way of ensuring a sustainable future. It will also ensure the health and care sector gets access to the highest quality services whilst making sure this offers the best value for money,” said Nick Wilson, Managing Director – Public Sector, Health & Care – Advanced.

“We’re seeing many NHS Trusts looking to become digital leaders to enhance everyday service to patients. Being included in this framework agreement is an important endorsement of the positive outcome our solutions can deliver,” concludes Nick.

Advanced solutions are already being used widely across the NHS, examples include:

• Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust is using Carenotes from Advanced to ignite its digital revolution for mental health services.
• Several NHS Trusts are using its Odyssey clinical decision support software which uses a unique Bayesian approach to guide clinicians to provide the right treatment and its patient management solution, Adastra. East Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust, for example, has seen significant cost savings through reductions in unnecessary ambulance journeys, instead allowing emergency calls to be responded to with appropriate telephone advice.
• Likewise, South Central Ambulance Service NHS Trust has enhanced the way it manages its NHS111 service through Advanced’s solutions, helping them to provide more tailored and timely care through instant access to their caller’s health history.
