The programme vision is to deliver &lsquo;a sustainable, integrated, cohesive and enduring information capability that will fully and effectively support the delivery of evidence-based medical and dental health and healthcare outputs, to achieve the Aim of the Defence Medical Services (DMS)&rsquo; &ndash; which is to Promote, Protect and Restore the health of the Defence population in order to maximise their fitness for role, while maintaining an occupational focus and an operational edge.<br> A multi-million-pound (CAT B) programme, with global reach and operations equivalent in size to two large CCGs (Clinical Commissioning Groups) and a Community Trust, CORTISONE looks to procure a full suite of healthcare software from multiple healthcare product/service suppliers, together with Design, Develop and Deliver services. It is anticipated that elements of the ecosystem will be re-competed on a regular basis to ensure the best solutions are being delivered to users, giving an ongoing opportunity for market players to get involved with the ecosystem on a long-term basis.</p> <p><br> MOD is looking for a range of companies to engage with the programme, delivering a full suite of healthcare software to meet use-cases and patient-journey-defined functional requirements. With the modular nature of the procurement allowing innovation, all suppliers are encouraged to take a leading role in the delivery of functionality.</p> <p><br> The CORTISONE Programme has engaged with suppliers through an Industry Day on 17 May 2018 and through a series of Discovery Days, where it has invited potential suppliers to present information on services and demonstrate products to relevant technical and business staff from the CORTISONE Programme. These Discovery Days have addressed:</p> <p>&bull; Primary Healthcare<br> &bull; Dental Healthcare<br> &bull; Integration Platforms<br> &bull; Enterprise Master Patient Index<br> &bull; Document Management</p> <p><br> CORTISONE is also looking to the future and will exploit innovation to align with NHS strategy, virtualise healthcare and integrate with services across the healthcare sector. This may include telemedicine, patient record integration with the NHS and other patient databases and patient condition tracking.</p>Contact: <a href="mailto:Charlie.Wyatt@techuk.org">Charlie.Wyatt@techuk.org</a>Contact: <a href="mailto:dan.patefield@techuk.org">dan.patefield@techuk.org</a>Contact: <a href="mailto:fred.sugden@techuk.org">fred.sugden@techuk.org</a> http://www.techuk.org/events/briefing/item/14598-analyst-launchpad-business-growth-via-analyst-endorsements Analyst Launchpad: Business Growth via Analyst Endorsements http://www.techuk.org/events/briefing/item/14598-analyst-launchpad-business-growth-via-analyst-endorsements Wed, 09 Jan 2019 08:14:49 +0000 CRM Sync noreply@techuk.org Analyst Launchpad: How companies win analyst endorsements to grow sales pipelines & scale up <p>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;<img alt="" src="//portal.techuk.org/uploaded-images/analyst_launchpad_logo_v2-01.png" style="height:216px; width:600px"></p> <p><strong>techUK </strong>is pleased to announce that we are joining forces with the <a href="https://ao.business-school.ed.ac.uk/">Analyst Observatory at the University of Edinburgh Business School (UEBS)</a>&nbsp;to provide tech companies with a new service package for scaling up and internationalising your businesses through the endorsement economy.</p> <p>Join us for the first free information session on the endorsement economy and the pitch to analysts on <strong>Tuesday, 29 January, 15:00-17:00, at techUK.</strong>&nbsp;The service package is particularly suitable for start-ups and SMEs with plans to scaling up and internationalisng.
