Advanced will provide a single integrated and interoperable electronic health record solution across all of the Trust’s clinical pathways including child, community and mental health, and specialised services.
The contract is the third win for Advanced in the NHS community and mental health space and around 68 contracts are expected to be renewed between 2014 and 2016.
The new solution will help the Trust’s 5,500 staff manage and deliver high quality care across Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Wiltshire, Bath and North East Somerset, and underpin the Trust’s research programme.
Support for mobile clinical staff is at the heart of the project, with Advanced rolling out its integrated clinical mobile working solution to 3,500 clinical users.
Rafael Sorribas, Health Informatics Development Manager, Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust, said: “Following a robust procurement process which began in March 2013, seeking our next generation of Electronic Health Record solution to support Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust, we are delighted to have awarded preferred supplier status to Advanced Health & Care.”

We are looking forward to supporting Oxford Health as it delivers efficient and enhanced quality care for its patients and their families.”
