Welsh GP contracts are secured by iSOFT

ISoft : 11 October, 2007  (New Product)
NHS Wales has selected iSOFT as one of four suppliers able to offer clinical systems and services to LHBs under the framework agreement.
All 126 GP practices in Wales that use iSOFT applications have been transferred to the new Welsh GMS Systems and Services Framework Agreement. iSOFT has finalised contracts with 20 Local Health Boards (LHBs).

The contracts now meant that iSOFT’s Ganymede and Synergy GP solutions are the officially endorsed national solutions in Wales.

Paul Richards, iSOFT’s UK and Ireland managing director, said: “Securing these contracts is a clear indication of our commitment to supporting our customers, safeguarding their existing investments and moving them forward.

“We have a loyal and supportive customer base in Wales. Our customers can now retain their iSOFT solution with the assurance that these will be developed in line with the new national standards with guaranteed service levels.”

The Welsh framework agreement provides a new national specification for systems in Wales, ensuring that all LHBs use the same standards across the country. The framework also provides a mechanism to purchase additional services such as training, implementation and consultancy and third party services.

Under the agreement, all LHBs in Wales can procure new clinical systems and services, on behalf of their constituent practices, that conform to the national standards and the requirements of the General Medical Services (GMS) contract for the use of IM&T. Practices will also receive system maintenance and support according to defined standards ensuring that GPs across Wales have timely access to IM&T to manage patient care.

“This contract demonstrates our desire to have a strong, enduring relationship with both the NHS Wales Primary Care IM&T Programme and Informing Healthcare, and confirms our commitment to providing customers with modern systems that meet the needs of their specific market,” said Richards.
