Orion Health Builds Momentum in UK, Signs Contracts in England and Scotland

Orion HealthOrion Health (OHE:NZX/ASX) has signed two contracts that will significantly extend its presence in the United Kingdom. It will provide a comprehensive technology solution for two leading hospitals in London, and it will implement an integrated health and social care solution for NHS Fife in east Scotland.

Orion Health CEO Ian McCrae says the success in both countries demonstrates the substantial impact that the company is having in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa) region.

"We responded to a highly competitive tender process for the London hospitals and were chosen as the preferred vendor after our solution was evaluated against a number of criteria and compared against other vendors' products," Mr McCrae says.

"Separately, we will be working with NHS Fife and Fife Council to enable an integrated health and social care record for adult services, following a successful pilot programme. This contract extends Orion Health's reach to five mainland health boards and one specialist health board and increases the population covered by Orion Health solutions to over 50% of Scotland."

For the London hospitals, the company will deploy a comprehensive Electronic Medical Record (EMR) and patient engagement solution made up of Orion Health Consult and Orion Health Engage. The EMR will empower clinicians by combining all relevant patient information from disparate systems into one patient record, making critical information readily available through a clinical portal, thereby improving decision making and organisational efficiency.

The Orion Health solution for NHS Fife will provide an integrated health and social care record for a comprehensive range of adult services including adult social work and housing services. The implementation is prompted by the Scottish Government's new requirement that every health board and local authority in Scotland must integrate its healthcare service.

William Edwards, General Manager eHealth and IMT, NHS Fife says, "We were impressed by Orion Health's ability to work collaboratively with us during an initial pilot phase and are excited to be proceeding onto the full roll-out phase. The solution will help enable us to deliver better, coordinated care to the entire Fife community."

Both contracts will boost the number of patient healthcare records managed by Orion Health software, as the London hospitals care for one million people and NHS Fife and Fife Council serve a population of over 360,000. Currently Orion Health's software manages over 90 million patient healthcare records worldwide.
