IT In The NHS – Not So Boring Anymore…

Datrix are an IT specialist. For many years, we have talked to IT people, about IT things, and the outcome has often led to us successfully delivering IT solutions both in the NHS and elsewhere. For almost as many years, I have personally been advocating a focus on proactivity and on the end user experience, rather than reactivity and the delivery of generic solutions - this time with varying degrees of success.

Recently, for the first time, I decided to really stand by what I’ve preached and speak to people in the NHS who are responsible for the patient experience, rather than networks and IT. My aim was simple – to communicate how our seemingly boring IT technologies can have a massive impact on the people that matter in the NHS – the patients.

Transform to a Digital Hospital with 802.11ac Wave 2

No IT environment is more demanding than healthcare, which literally defines reliability in mission-critical information systems.

Optimal outcomes – in healthcare services, organisational budgets, IT efficiency and effectiveness and beyond – depend upon wireless LANs providing the best possible coverage, capacity and reliability for communications and patient telemetry monitoring, as well as low-latency access to often (very) large amounts of data, produced by MRI and CT imaging.

How can SME suppliers get a look in to Public Sector Procurement?

Over recent years, various Government pledges have proposed – even mandated – that the public sector makes better procurement choices. Targets include choosing cloud solutions first and buying more products and services from small/medium businesses (SMEs).

These strategies have solid enough foundations – having been designed to introduce greater agility, speed of delivery and cost efficiency to purchasing. They are also intended to boost the British economy, by supporting entrepreneurs, smaller specialists and local suppliers – the sorts of businesses that drive innovation and underpin the country’s prosperity.
