Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care selects Civica

Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust has selected Civica’s cloud-based CostMaster solution.

The software, a patient level and reference costing solution will provide the ICFT with a clearer view of its cost data to better inform the board of the ICFT’s finances and identify where cost savings can be implemented.

Dawn Murphy, Finance Business Partner at TGICFT, said: “Due to the number of patients we serve daily, having a clear view of our activity and cost variation is vital. We need to be able to source the information required to make robust investment decisions and achieve the most effective use of our resources.”

“We felt that Civica’s system offered a great user experience for all staff, in the hospital and the community, including those with limited technical abilities. With Managed CostMaster, we can quickly start to remove much of the admin currently facing our internal IT teams, so they have more time to support critical frontline services.”

David Roots, Executive Director, Health and Care at Civica, said: “We’re excited that TGICFT has chosen Civica’s cloud-based CostMaster platform. We are very much looking forward to supporting the ICFT in achieving significant cost savings and efficiencies and understanding the more innovative ways the IT team can now support frontline clinical services. Our solution will continue to support the ICFT’s digital transformation vision and ultimately enhance its integrated patient care.”

The company said the solution will help the ICFT make better use of resources relating to cost infrastructure and support.
