South East Coast Ambulance Service opens data platform tender

South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust has opened a tender for the provision of a patient records data solution.

The trust aims to implement an organisation-wide holistic data solution, to encompass all processes related to the primary and secondary use requirements for patient data.

Currently, South East Coast Ambulance Service processes over 720,000 records each year, and requires a solution to integrate with its electronic patient records solution and clinical audit data solution.

The notice states: “The system will need to interact with several existing systems, to allow call audits, clinical audits and associated patient records to match to the incident details held. Information captured at the time of 999 and 111 calls will combine with data captured on the patient clinical record to automate the data collection processes and reporting requirements for national auditing and internal audit purposes.”

On some of the requirements, the tender adds the need to provide feedback to clinicians, call takers and other trust departments and provide visibility of data and support the secure onward transmission of data.

The value of the contact is anticipated to be £150,000 for an initial three year term.
