Orion Health CEO Ian McCrae said the company will provide a comprehensive technology solution for two leading hospitals in London, and implement an integrated health and social care solution for NHS Fife in east Scotland.
McCrae said both contracts will boost the number of patient healthcare records managed by Orion Health software, as the London hospitals care for one million people and NHS Fife and Fife Council serve a population of over 360,000.
“We responded to a highly competitive tender process for the London hospitals and were chosen as the preferred vendor after our solution was evaluated against a number of criteria and compared against other vendors’ products,” McCrae said.
McCrae said for the (unnamed) London hospitals, the company will deploy a comprehensive Electronic Medical Record (EMR) and patient engagement solution made up of Orion Health Consult and Orion Health Engage.
According to McCrae, the EMR will empower clinicians by combining all relevant patient information from disparate systems into one patient record, making critical information readily available through a clinical portal and improving decision making and organisational efficiency.
The Orion Health solution for NHS Fife will provide an integrated health and social care record for a comprehensive range of adult services including adult social work and housing services.
McCrae said the NHS Fife implementation is prompted by the Scottish Government’s new requirement that every health board and local authority in Scotland must integrate its healthcare service.
William Edwards, General Manager eHealth and IMT, NHS Fife said, “We were impressed by Orion Health’s ability to work collaboratively with us during an initial pilot phase and are excited to be proceeding onto the full roll-out phase. The solution will help enable us to deliver better, coordinated care to the entire Fife community.”
Both contracts will boost the number of patient healthcare records managed by Orion Health software, as the London hospitals care for one million people and NHS Fife and Fife Council serve a population of over 360,000. Currently Orion Health’s software manages over 90 million patient healthcare records worldwide.
