Ortivus and the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service HSC Trust (NIAS) have reached an agreement for Ortivus to deliver its prehospital MobiMed system to Northern Ireland’s emergency services. The agreement includes the delivery of software, hardware and support for the MobiMed system by Ortivus and applies to the entire Northern Ireland ambulance service which handles 17,000 patients per month and has approximately 300 vehicles. The total value of the order is £2.7M. Installation is expected to commence at the end of 2019 and the agreement is valid over a six-year period, with option on a up to two-year extension.
”The award was made following completion of an OJEU procurement process led by the Northern Ireland Procurement and Logistics Service (PaLS) which was open to all suppliers and the evaluation shows that Ortivus’ MobiMed solution delivers a competitive edge and meets the high demands made by NIAS regarding required functionality. This is yet further proof that Ortivus solutions are at the forefront of fulfilling today’s modern functionality and integration requirements.” said Lars Host, CEO for Ortivus UK.
“The scope of this project is about much more than just replacing a paper-based patient record with an electronic patient record. It is about providing an end-to-end solution for an e-health environment while keeping the patient at the centre. Our key aim is to establish an integrated electronic patient record system which enables NIAS to improve the quality of patient care while also optimizing patient outcomes and care pathways. Ortivus’ MobiMed solution is a system that fulfils our requirements and NIAS is eager to start this important project,” said Dr Nigel Ruddell, Medical Director of NIAS.
The entire system is planned to be commissioned in 2020, but partial delivery of various components may begin at the end of 2019.
