NHSX and NHS England (NHSE) have published a list of accredited suppliers of electronic patient record solutions, to give purchasers in the NHS more confidence in their route to digitisation.
NHSE and NHSX have developed a new section on the Health Systems Support Framework to help organisations and integrated care systems get best value for money when buying new digital services, software and infrastructure.
Eight companies – who have been evaluated and assured to deliver the most robust systems – are on the framework’s Lot 1 list and meet a wide range of key criteria including ability to integrate with other IT systems. The successful companies are; Allscripts, Cerner, DXC, IMS Maxims, Nervecentre, Meditech, TPP and System C.
The framework was created to provide services that support the delivery of integrated care – including population health management – and the new EPR section will provide access to supplier systems able to meet the Global Digital Exemplars (GDE) standards. It will mean Trusts and other NHS entities can digitise more quickly.
