The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust is overhauling its digital operations and priming itself for future growth with the help of a new network solution and fully managed service from ANS Group.
This new fully-managed network will underpin both student and patient record systems, and will help to speed up checking-in processes, as well as enabling remote patient care and trust-wide scheduling. ANS Group, is implementing a scalable Cisco local area network (LAN) solution and has also signed a five year fully managed service contract with the Trust in excess of half a million pounds, which will act as a key enabler for trust-wide digitalisation.
David Wyndham-Lewis, Director of Transformation and Technology at The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, said: “As a rapidly growing trust, we quickly identified the need to invest in state-of-the-art network infrastructure, in order to future-proof our operations and provide the best possible service to our patients and students.
“We tendered so that we could be confident that we were partnering with a specialist consultant. ANS perfectly matched our requirements and have been able to provide a high-quality service, along with the flexibility and level of management that we needed to completely transform our digital operations.”
Andy Barrow, CTO at ANS Group, added: “The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust is an ambitious and forward-thinking organisation. It recognises why it’s crucial to provide a digital-first service and understands the benefits of having a comprehensive digital strategy and a robust network in place.”
