Alcidion extends milestone deal with South Tees for Smartpage, cloud hosting and business change management services

South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Alcidion is pleased to announce an extension of its contract with South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (South Tees) to include cloud hosting on Microsoft Azure, a managed service of the hosted environment, Alcidion’s Smartpage clinical communication solution and business change management services.

This contract extension follows Alcidion’s milestone deal with South Tees for the Company’s flagship product suite Miya Precision and the Better OPENeP electronic prescribing and medicines administration (ePMA) system.

The addition of Smartpage to the solution scope will enable integrated secure alerting and escalation within and between clinical teams at South Tees. The proposed cloud hosting and management service will provide South Tees with a secure hosting environment and the skills required to maintain the environment from Alcidion’s technical services team.

A program as large as the one being undertaken at South Tees requires business change management that focuses on managing the resultant change from the staff perspective, to ensure optimal adoption of the solution and the realisation of anticipated business benefits. South Tees has engaged Alcidion to map out the plan for a program of change management across the life of the project to facilitate positive outcomes.

South Tees is the largest hospital trust in Tees Valley in the United Kingdom, with over 1,000 beds, employing approximately 9,000 clinical and operational staff and providing care for more than 1.5 million people.

Alcidion Group Managing Director, Kate Quirke, said: “Following the initial announcement of our contract with South Tees for Miya Precision and Better’s OPENeP solution last month, we are pleased to build on our partnership. With the addition of Smartpage, South Tees will now be utilising the complete Alcidion product suite, and we are glad to provide further hosting and managed services to best assist South Tees with the implementation of Alcidion’s technology to address their clinical and operational needs.”
