The service includes engagement with executive stakeholders to ensure that the IT strategy is fully aligned with and enforces the broader organisational / operational vision. We are acutely aware of the budgetary challenges facing the NHS and the need for all planned activity to underpin cost savings and efficiencies.
We are experienced in the development of outline and full business cases following the five-case model, and ensure that benefits identified are realistic and achievable. Our detailed understanding of deploying systems with and for the NHS ensures that the costs and risks are identified at the start so that the business case remains viable throughout the project / programme.
All of our application specialists have worked with or for the NHS for many years and most have held either clinical or operational posts within trusts. We are uniquely placed to work with Trusts to develop a comprehensive set of system and user requirements to populate procurement documentation such as the Output Based Specification (OBS).
Whilst we have strong relationships with a number of suppliers, we are able to offer impartial support and advice to Trusts during procurement in either a lead or advisory capacity.
