Integrated Care Systems (ICS) and Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs) aim to deliver the best possible quality of health and care, shift to value-based care and proactively improve outcomes for their populations. These transformation initiatives can now be more easily supported by sourcing a range of innovative services and technologies through NHS England’s new Health Systems Support Framework (HSSF). Cerner are proud to have been selected for all six of our submitted ‘lots’ on the new framework.

With this new framework, NHS England aims to build a ‘one-stop-shop’ for STPs and ICS partners to make faster and better decisions to work with ‘pre-approved’ industry suppliers in the acceleration of their digital transformation and Population Health Management (PHM) ambitions.

Our application to become part of the HSSF supports our commitment to the delivery of smarter, value-based care and our drive to support the improvement of health and wellbeing of citizens, integrate and enhance the quality of services, and drive financial sustainability.

Our place on the framework supports health systems to partner with Cerner to provide: Local Health and Care Record solutions (Lots 2A and 2B), ICT infrastructure (Lot 3), Insight, Informatics, Analytics and Digital tools including risk and impactability modelling (Lots 4 and 5) and Patient Empowerment and Activation (Lot 7).

The success of our submission builds on Cerner’s capabilities and extensive experience, underpinned by the results seen from recent projects such as the Healthy Wirral Programme, Lewisham Health and Care Partners (LHCP) and the award of NHS England’s National Performance and Population Health Management Dashboard project.

The announcement follows the completion of a robust assessment process carried out by NHS England to ensure all providers included in the framework are able to deliver the capabilities as described in their applications and in compliance with the framework’s terms and conditions.

Geoff Segal, General Manager for Cerner UK, welcomed the announcement and said:

“The need for integration of health and social care services is an essential part of the NHS Five Year Forward View. We are thrilled to be part of a framework that supports this aim and keen to partner with STPs and ICSs to help them achieve successful transformational change along their digital journey and enable the improvement of their patients’ experience and population well-being.”

Battling sepsis on World Sepsis Day and beyond

This World Sepsis Day, over 20,000 people will die from the condition, including 120 in the UK, and according to the Dr Foster research unit at Imperial College London, more deaths from sepsis are being reported. However, when drilling down further into the data, the main reason for the increase is improved awareness of sepsis. Doctors and nurses are recognising deteriorating patients earlier and are coding sepsis cases more accurately. This has led to a rise in coding for sepsis, and a subsequent increase in known sepsis-related deaths.
