One of the biggest challenges faced by organisations, especially procurement teams within healthcare, is deciding which software to purchase to meet the demands of individual users, departments and multi speciality teams.
There are some key considerations procurement teams need to consider and evaluate ensuring the software solution is fully interoperable and integrates with the existing Trust infrastructure. The sheer number of choices that are available adds another layer of complexity, making the choice even more difficult and time consuming researching the most suitable solution/s.
This is where choosing the right vendor has been simplified for NHS Trusts and other public sector institutions. Procurement can now take place through the G-Cloud directory, which is a Government-led digital procurement marketplace. Any Trust which seeks procurement through the G-Cloud has reassurance and peace of mind that each listed supplier has gone through rigorous checks. This ensures that they meet the highest standards in data protection, data security and information governance.
