Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Trust renews Patientrack contract

Alcidion Group has announced it has signed a five-year product licence renewal agreement with Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Trust for Patientrack licensing and support for an additional five years, to 2024. The total value of the renewal is $970K.

Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Trust first implemented Patientrack in 2012, making it one of the longest-serving users of the software. This is the second time it has renewed its contract. The platform was initially deployed following a successful competitive tender in 2011, and the system is live in 68 wards across the trust’s three hospitals.

Alcidion Group Managing Director Kate Quirke said,

We are delighted to continue our close partnership with Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Trust – one of our foundation customers in the UK – for the continued use of Patientrack for another five years. This demonstrates the longevity of our relationships with customers who have embedded Patientrack into their clinical care.”

Alcidion’s UK General Manager Donald Kennedy said,

Our long-standing partnership with Western Sussex NHS Trust has seen several innovations made to Patientrack, and its use has expanded within the trust since it was implemented. These include the implementation of world-leading predictive analytics for Acute Kidney injury as well as a broad range of clinical assessments and workflow for conditions such as Sepsis. This renewal demonstrates the benefits our solutions can bring to patients and health professionals, and the value our solutions can add to wards, hospitals and healthcare systems.”

Alcidion’s Patientrack platform is a mobile and digital bedside solution that helps hospitals improve patient safety, quality of care and clinical staff efficiency. Patientrack helps hospital workflow by planning and performing patient observations and assessments and providing clinical documentation at the bedside in real-time. These functions of the Patientrack solution ensure the early detection and timely clinical response to deteriorating patients at all times, in a range of different ward environments.
