London, 17 April 2019
West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust has appointed Atos UK & Ireland, a global leader in digital transformation, to deliver IT services – including a new network – at the Trust over the next three years.
Helen Brown, deputy CEO of West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust said: “Information technology is playing an increasingly large part in patient care. Our new partnership with Atos will drive significant improvements in our current systems, making IT a strategic enabler as we redevelop our sites and transform services for our patients.”
Nikki Kelly, Atos UK&I Senior Vice President for Public Sector said: “We look forward to working with West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust to deliver a high performing IT environment and platform that the Trust can use to renew and enhance patient care and experience.”
In leveraging its technology portfolio Atos will enable the freeing up of clinician time to focus on health, wellbeing and patient outcomes for the trust, which provides care to around half a million people in west Hertfordshire and surrounding areas.
The use of technology to reduce the need for direct use of NHS services and ensure that patients get the best possible healthcare experience and outcomes is key to the sustainable future of one of the UK’s most prized institutions.
