Driven in part by NHS reforms, and higher patient expectations, the UK healthcare sector has experienced unprecedented levels of transformation in its use of information technology to improve patient care.
The NHS National Programme for IT (NPfIT) in 2003 initiated a broad range of significant national and regional IT projects to provide a more integrated care delivery system that meets the needs of a 21st century health service. Similarly, the private healthcare sector is reassessing its approach to IT, both to meet its own internal demands and to integrate with their NHS partners. As an established public sector expert, Agilisys understands the impact of these changes and is primed to help our clients better meet their needs.
Agilisys provides IM&T strategy consultancy for organisations delivering health services to both the NHS and private sector to help them achieve their goals and meet their priorities.
Based on our reputation in implementing enterprise patient demographic and patient scheduling systems, Agilisys was engaged to design and deliver a turnkey medical diagnostics solution to support the 18-week RTT targets mandated by the Department of Health. This multi-disciplinary platform, built and managed for InHealth Group supported the only service of its kind across the UK. The design required the integration of clinical applications, telephony, and workflow management all centralised in a patient referral service booking over 120 sites in London.
Agilisys’ pedigree in clinical diagnostics supporting both NHS and private care health bodies in their delivery of care resulted in a dedicated clinical diagnostics unit. We integrate, implement and manage radiology, pathology and other departmental systems for medical centres. For BMI Healthcare, Agilisys is responsible for RIS-PACS across 50 sites throughout the UK. Our consultants advise NHS Trusts on their IMT strategy and transformation programmes.
ITIL service delivery, Prince 2 project management, backed by world class hosting facilities mean Agilisys offers a comprehensive managed service with assured quality and flexibility.
