Significant hospital project wins for Servelec Health and Social Care

Servelec, the UK-based technology and software group, is pleased to announce a number of important project wins for its Health and Social Care division across its portfolio of software solutions. 

These contracts build on the strong performance from Health & Social Care in 2015 and help embed Servelec as a supplier of choice to the NHS and Irish Health Service Executive. The contract wins are expected to positively impact Servelec Health & Social Care's revenues in the first half of 2016.

Oceano: modular Patient Administration System ("PAS") for Acute Care settings
Following the announcement of the Group's preferred bidder status to supply an Acute PAS using its Oceano product in December 2015, the Group has been appointed by this Acute Hospital Trust to implement its Oceano PAS solution in three hospitals and 13 minor injury units with delivery anticipated in 2016 / 2017. 

This is an important win because it provides further credibility to Servelec's Acute sector transition under the North Refresh and brings Oceano together with Flow, following the integration of Aura Healthcare during 2015. It also signifies that Servelec's Converged Care approach is gaining traction as the region already has Servelec Health and Social Care solutions in neighboring Trusts and the County Council.

RiO: Electronic Patient Record software solution [for Community and Mental Health settings]
Servelec has been appointed by Shropshire Community Health NHS Trust to deliver its RiO EPR system across the entire Trust supporting full community care settings. Shropshire Community Health NHS Trust delivers community health services to approximately 456,000 people across Shropshire and parts of Wales. This appointment builds on the ongoing sales activity with Community Trusts around RiO in 2015 with further opportunities expected in 2016.

PICS: rules-based clinical decision support software system
The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital Foundation Trust (RoH) in Birmingham has awarded Servelec the contract to provide Electronic Prescribing and Clinical Decision Support with its PICS solution. This demonstrates that Servelec is delivering on its strategy to deploy the PICS solution in an Acute environment. RoH is one of the largest specialist Orthopaedic Trusts in Europe providing complex Trauma and Orthopaedic services across the country. Deployment of the PICS system is expected to be in place by Q4 2016 and anticipated to go live in January 2017.

Flow: web application for patient flow management
Further demonstrating the value of the Group's acquisition of Aura Healthcare in May 2015, Servelec has been appointed as the provider of the Inpatient Journey Solution at St Vincent's University Hospital Dublin with its Flow/Note product. This strengthens Servelec's position in Ireland, and is a useful case study for other opportunities identified in this market.

Mosaic: social care software solution
Continuing Servelec's progress in Scotland, Servelec Corelogic has been appointed by Dundee City Council to deliver its Mosaic product across its Adult, Children, Criminal Justice and Finance departments. The solution, which will go live in November 2016, was selected as the most economically advantageous option for Dundee City Council and puts Servelec in a strong position for future sales in Scotland.

Alan Stubbs, Chief Executive Officer of Servelec commented; "This is a positive start to the year for Servelec Health and Social Care across the UK and Ireland. Building on the strong performance of the business in 2015 these projects demonstrate the breadth and strength of both our product portfolio and market position as a trusted supplier to the NHS and the Irish Health Service Executive.

"Our expansion into the Acute market is an important part of our growth strategy.  The EPR programme win for this multi-site NHS Trust is an excellent platform from which to capitalise on other opportunities in this sector. We aim to play a leading role in the Converged Care agenda nationally. This award demonstrates our commitment to this agenda because our products are already in place and integrating well in the region. We believe we can make Converged Care happen across this and other regions as the Government looks to provide excellent customer care at a lower cost."
