NHS Connecting for Health has added Digital Healthcare to a supplier framework agreement for the provision of streamlined healthcare.
Digital Healthcare provides software and related services for very large scale eye screening, and is also developing advanced clinical pathway systems for use in acute care.
Digital Healthcare is now part of the NHS Additional Supply Capability & Capacity Framework.
This Framework is designed to support both the delivery of existing IT systems and provide new clinical technology and services as NHS business requirements emerge.
The new contract is not intended to replace the contracts already awarded for the National Programme for IT, but to support them.
