A privately owned group consisting of of hospitals and care homes, wanted to take advantage of a new government initiative, “Choose and Book”.
“Choose and Book” provides NHS patients access to private medical support when NHS facilities are not available.
The system allows GP’s access to consultants and services at private establishments on behalf of its NHS patient through a computerised appointment system.
360ict assigned a senior member of its team to fully explore and understand the system and the challenges faced by private providers in meeting the criteria both organisationally and technically. We consulted at Board level in advising and implementing the Choose and Book scheme within HMT’s IT strategy.
HMT became one of the first private institutions to benefit from Choose and Book offering services to NHS patients, greatly increasing its patient intake and profitability which was then used to further its own Christian led charitable care.
“Being one of the first private hospitals to incorporate the governments Choose and Book system has been a great achievement for The Trust and 360ict’s personnel were absolutely instrumental in getting to grips with the requirements of the system and implementing it for The Trust, including HR”
