PHS Data Solutions has been listed as a UK Public Sector Cloud provider. Hence the firm will be able to supply its services to the NHS and other government departments through the G-Cloud 8 Framework Agreement.
The framework gives public sector buyers the assurance that suppliers are working to standards compliant with G-Cloud 8 and as such they are audited or inspected by a range of bodies including the Cabinet Office and the National Audit Office. Gaining this status means that PHS Data Solutions joins vetted suppliers who are all working according to codes of practice set by the Crown Commercial Services (CCS).
The digital marketplace has been created by the government seeking to improve efficiency via the adoption of technology. PHS has five services available on Cloud 8. These services encompass: a digital mailroom, medical records scanning, invoice processing and workflow, records management and confidential document destruction.
So how do buyers get their head into the cloud?! The G-Cloud 8 provides access to suppliers’ applications or work flow software running on a cloud infrastructure. Buyers can access services from various devices through interfaces such as a web browser or a program interface.
The NHS faces a challenge to eliminate paper usage in hospitals, clinics, surgeries and amongst administrators. PHS says that it’s working with NHS Trusts, including the Royal Liverpool Hospital, to help them manage the change to full digitisation by 2020. PHS says that it can digitise medical records to make the NHS more efficient and as it offers security too, so that confidential patient information is guarded as a matter of course.
PHS Data Solutions’ Managing Director, Anthony Pearlgood, said: “We are proud to be part of the G-Cloud 8 framework. We have the resources and digital expertise to safeguard against data breaches and help the NHS and other government departments meet the Government’s ‘paperless’ goal. Our job is to provide businesses and large organisations with the capabilities to handle vast amounts of data in a practical and safe way. We look forward to being a key service provider for the public sector.” Visit: http://www.phsdatasolutions.co.uk.
