iSoft targets telehealth market

NHS software supplier iSoft has won a place on the telehealth assistive technologies framework agreement, which should allow the firm to expand its fledgling telehealth division.

The framework agreement is with Buying Solutions, the national procurement organisation for all UK public services, and will facilitate the buying of a wide range of products for public sector contracting authorities.

The agreement is for two years, with the option of two further one-year extensions, and will cover the areas of telecare, telehealth and telecoaching.

iSoft will be responsible for the purchase, installation, maintenance monitoring and coaching of telecare and telehealth solutions.

Adrian Stevens, managing director, iSOFT UK and MEA, said: “We are pleased to have been awarded a place on the framework agreement. Although relatively new to the telehealth market, iSoft is the leading provider of integrated healthcare solutions in the UK and Ireland, where its current market share is more than 40%.

“Telehealth is a key area for iSoft and we believe that it will become more significant in the new healthcare landscape where the gap between health and social care seems to be closing.”
