Cerner selected for NHS framework to support integrated care and population health

Cerner has joined NHS England’s new Health Systems Support Framework (HSSF) to support Integrated Care Systems and Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships.

The company has qualified for 6 lots as part of the new framework where NHS England aims to build a ‘one-stop-shop’ for STPs and ICS partners to make faster and better decisions to work with ‘pre-approved’ industry suppliers in the acceleration of their digital transformation and Population Health Management (PHM) ambitions.

Cerner has been successful as part of Local Health and Care Record solutions (Lots 2A and 2B), ICT infrastructure (Lot 3), Insight, Informatics, Analytics and Digital tools including risk and impactability modelling (Lots 4 and 5) and Patient Empowerment and Activation (Lot 7).

Geoff Segal, General Manager for Cerner UK, welcomed the announcement and said:“The need for integration of health and social care services is an essential part of the NHS Five Year Forward View. We are thrilled to be part of a framework that supports this aim and keen to partner with STPs and ICSs to help them achieve successful transformational change along their digital journey and enable the improvement of their patients’ experience and population well-being.”
