Health and social care organisations can now access the company’s range of expertise specialising in digital transformation programmes via the ‘go-to’ purchasing framework for the NHS.

The company has secured a place on the ICT and digital consultancy and advisory series of the consultancy and advisory framework.

The Consultancy and Advisory Services tender exercise was conducted by HealthTrust Europe and designed to support the NHS and other Public Sector Organisations in managing the dynamics of the consultancy market, offering a simple, compliant route for the procurement of a range of expert consultancy services at competitive rates. It offers users the flexibility of allowing both direct call-off and further competition under the provisions of the framework agreement.

Michael Beckett, managing director, Cloud21 said ‘There have been too many IT programmes that haven’t delivered the transformation expected or required, and we have seen that this can make people wary of technology and waste diminishing budgets. And yet today’s technology is capable of so much. Cloud21 has played a part in delivering digital solutions to health and social care over the last ten years accumulating vast experience and knowledge. We have built a reputation for fixing issues, for being delivery focused, for being clear communicators and for turning expert knowledge into quality deliverables. With that we can facilitate a much needed sharing economy of skills and lessons on the key to achieving successful transformation programmes.’

HealthTrust Europe is part of HCA Healthcare, a leading healthcare organisation, which is driven by the care and improvement of human life. They operate nationally as a platform connecting  healthcare provider and supplier communities to improve healthcare. They offer solutions to manage spend effectively and improve performance, working with both public and private healthcare providers to optimise the use of products and services to identify cost saving opportunities.

Beckett concludes, ‘we want to see technology solutions reach their potential and deliver the expected benefits. We want to save staff from ‘making do’ with systems that aren’t fit and prevent systems from being replaced not long after implementation. We’re here to help our health and social care teams gain the most from their investments and more organisations are now able to benefit from our experience via this framework.’
