The new contract has been awarded through the West Midlands Ambulance Service Foundation Trust Framework for the Supply of Ambulance Electronic Patient Record System, under which Ortivus is a supplier.

Installation is expected to start during 2020 and the agreement is valid over a five-year period with an option to extend by up to two years. The optional years have a value of £1.5M.
”This extension of service with an existing customer demonstrates the high-quality MobiMed Journal product and first-class service and support delivered by Ortivus. The latter is required when operating a business-critical system like this” said Reidar Gårdebäck, CEO for Ortivus UK.
Ortivus has been working to provide their MobiMed solution as a fully managed ePCR service with SCAST since contract signature in 2013. The initial contract was for a period of 4 years and subsequently extended to the maximum length of 6 years.
