Boost for EMIS Health secondary care

EMIS Health has been appointed to the £15m contract framework for secondary care clinical systems across Scotland.

The Glasgow-based company has won accreditation as a supplier of Hospital Electronic Prescribing and Medicines Administration (HEPMA) systems from NHS Scotland.

EMIS Health’s hospital pharmacy system is already used in seven health boards, and the company has a 51.5% share of the GP market in Scotland.

EMIS Health is one of just two suppliers on the NHS Scotland HEPMA framework, which means that health boards are free to choose EMIS Health’s fully integrated suite of HEPMAeprescribing, medicines management and hospital pharmacy systems.

The technology uses intuitive touch screens with a drug chart layout that is familiar to clinicians, and allows them to prescribe according to their current practice rather than having to adapt to the constraints of an electronic system.

Duane Lawrence, managing director for EMIS Health secondary care said: “We are delighted to have landed this important business win, which shows our reach across the UK.

“North and south of the border, our systems are driving up standards of patient care, transforming ways of working for clinicians and introducing efficiencies that will save the NHS money.”
