Accenture to Install Patient Record System in Nine U.K. Communities, Hospitals; Jim Burke Comments

accenture_ExecutiveBizAccenture has won a multi-million dollar contract from The Phoenix Partnership (TPP) to implement a patient administration system across nine community health systems and children’s hospitals for the National Health Services in southern England, according to an Accenture statement.

“With the combination of TPP’s proven and reliable technology and Accenture’s implementation experience, patients of all ages across southern England will see the benefits that connected health can provide,” said Jim Burke, managing director for Accenture’s U.K. health business.

Accenture is expected to work with the Trusts in the Southern Community & Child Health Procurement consortium to deploy the TPP SystmOne solution.

The contract calls for application integration, hosting, deployment and ongoing support for the platform.

Accenture and TPP will also work to implement functionality to support community services, community hospitals, minor injuries units and child health, including e-prescribing between 2013 and 2014.

The electronic patient record system is expected to allow clinicians to access and exchange health information across community, primary and acute care settings.

The Southern Community & Child Health Procurement consortium includes nine NHS community health systems from Kent to Cornwall in southern England.
