“Atos Origin launches Atos Healthcare”
London, 20 June 2007
Delivery to first new customer already underway Atos Origin at today's NHS Confederation Conference launched Atos Healthcare, a new division which combines Atos Origin's healthcare expertise in one integrated, world-class offering. Atos Healthcare, which leverages the company's knowledge of consulting, technology and healthcare services, also announced that it has commenced delivery of Occupational Health Services to more than 6000 NHS Blood and Transplant employees.
Atos Healthcare has been set up in response to growing demand from private and public sector organisations for a joined-up approach to healthcare service delivery. With 2,000 employees in the UK - including more than 500 full-time and 1300 contract medical professionals – Atos Healthcare delivers a range of services from change management, procurement, hosting and software development, through to disability assessments, occupational health and front line primary care.
Atos Healthcare is delivering ground-breaking projects, such as Choose and Book and the first privately run, award-winning NHS Walk-In Centres in England. Each year, Atos Healthcare also carries out 1 million medical assessments and looks after the occupational health of 500,000 employees from its 150 UK treatment centres.
“Following our increasing success in the healthcare market and its importance to our business, we have created Atos Healthcare, enabling us to better focus on the needs of our customers and further grow and strengthen our position in this market,” said Keith Wilman, UK CEO, Atos Origin.
“I am delighted that on the same day as we launch Atos Healthcare, we are able to announce that we have commenced service delivery of occupational health services to NHS Blood and Transplant. We remain committed to working with all our clients to lead improvements in the way care is delivered and giving control to patients to help them choose how to manage their health most efficiently, conveniently and reliably.”
