Population health and precision medicine company Orion Health has been awarded five lots by the NHS London Procurement Partnership (LPP) for its Clinical & Digital Information Systems Framework (CDIS).
The Clinical & Digital Information Systems Framework was developed to help heath and social care organisations become fully compliant with the government’s digital health ambitions.
The Framework attributes £1.3 billion to resource suppliers that can help healthcare organisations meet the government’s Personalised Health and Care 2020 plan.
NHS London Procurement Partnership launched the framework in December 2016 to help streamline the procurement of technology, such as EHR systems, integration and interoperable digital tools. Healthcare organisations will benefit from these technologies through quicker access to vital data and information.
Orion Health’s five lots include Interoperability and Interfacing, Clinical and Patient Portal, Informatics and Reporting, Medication Management and Patient Workflow. The company met 100% of the evaluation criteria.
The company’s contribution to patient workflow comes from its Coordinate platform, which is live in various forms across four sites in the UK including Northern Ireland. The platform uses clinical data to enable patient-centric care and decision making. It also enables shared care planning and the creation of clinical pathways for specific conditions.
The Coordiante platform can be integrated with other Orion Health solutions in areas such as medicines reconciliation and engagement to potentially 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.”
Speaking about the CDIS Framework, James Ormonde, sales director for England at Orion Health said: “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.”
