Orion Health Boosts Offering to UK's Largest Health Board

Orion HealthOrion Health (OHE:NZX/ASX) has significantly increased its offering to the United Kingdom's largest healthcare provider, the NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Health Board (NHS GGC), the company announced.

The publicly funded NHS GGC is one of the largest scale users of Orion Health technology with over 25,000 users. Located in west central Scotland, it delivers services through 35 hospitals, 10 specialised units, and 50 healthcare centres and clinics.

Orion Health has expanded its offering within the NHS GGC to deliver two new modules, Medicines Reconciliation and Problem List. In addition, the NHS GGC is extending its use of Orion Health's Coordinate solution by adopting Healthcare Pathways to support care coordination and patient transfer and handover.

Jonathan Selby, Orion Health Executive Vice President for Europe, Middle East and Africa, says the new solution will provide healthcare professionals with a comprehensive picture of an individual's care needs and help reduce the potential for any medication related errors.

"It will allow authorised users to understand a full list of patient allergies and problems, and enable them to keep track of medication changes that occur during an inpatient episode of care. After the patient is discharged from hospital it will provide a summary of these changes to other care professionals," Mr Selby says.

Colin Henderson, Orion Health Managing Director for the UK and Ireland adds "NHS GGC has acted as a beacon site for others and has driven forward the integrated health information agenda in Scotland, as well as acting as a reference study for health regions across the UK and internationally."

"We are delighted to be increasing our offering to NHS GGC, and look forward to continuing to work with the Board on enabling better healthcare delivery."
