Insource announces co-sell agreement with Microsoft
Insource has joined with Microsoft to help their healthcare customers find better ways to purchase, implement, roll out and update their technologies.
Steve Aitken, Insource CEO, explained, “We are already working with progressive NHS Trusts and NHS Regional Initiatives who are pioneers in the move to cloud-based solutions. For example, Liverpool Women’s NHS Foundation Trust has declared their intention to go server-free and leveraging our Data Academy development environment is vital in this. In addition, the Northern Care Alliance NHS Group are rolling out our Patient Pathway Plus solution for improving RTT data quality across the group, leveraging Microsoft’s Azure cloud services. We’re keen to help more in the NHS understand the benefits and we’re delighted to have Microsoft’s support in this.”
The new partnership comes at a time when the government is planning to downgrade trusts with poor IT and as GDEs are increasingly required to meet digital milestones before accessing funding. Insource estimates that 50% of its healthcare customer base will be accessing their solutions via the cloud by early 2020.

Servelec and Totalmobile extend partnership
Servelec has extended its partnership with mobile workforce solution provider Totalmobile. The partnership will facilitate the mobilisation of Servelec’s health and social care customer base by enabling them to access the clinical information they need on the move, via their mobile device.
Mobile solutions for Servelec’s social care platform, Mosaic, are currently in development, including a solution that will enable social care workers to easily organise visits and update case management notes whilst on the move. It is currently estimated that social workers spend around 30% of their time in the office, which Servelec and Totalmobile hope to reduce to 10% through use of the app, meaning they can spend more time with clients.
