EMIS Health in £15m Scottish health contract

Leeds-based healthcare software provider EMIS Health has won a share of a £15m supply contract, helping the firm extend its reach in secondary care.

The company has won accreditation as a supplier of Hospital Electronic Prescribing and Medicines Administration (HEPMA) systems in Scotland, and is just one of two suppliers on the NHS Scotland HEPMA framework, which is rolling out electronic medicines management across hospitals.

It means that health boards are free to choose EMIS Health’s suite of HEPMA eprescribing, medicines management and hospital pharmacy systems.

The technology uses 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.

EMIS currently provide every health sector with technology to improve practise, from clinical management systems to health analytics tools, all with customer support.

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.”
