Electronic Patient Records Business Case and Procurement:

For the Business Case we followed the Treasury 5-case model covering the following areas:
This document was produced in conjunction with the Trust and a Full Board signed off on the document in December 2016 initiating a procurement process.
In parallel to this we worked on the development of a specification and all the other documentation required to get to a launch ready state on the procurement process. This involved developing:
Once ready these documents were quality assured and issued in an Open OJEU Process. We then managed the process to the point of final recommendation covering the collation and moderation of all evaluator score and the final assessment of the results using the MEAT sheet as published in the tender.
The results of this process were signed off at a Full Trust Board meeting in early 2018. After this, contract negotiations were managed and the final contract was signed by the Trust Director of Finance and the supplier Managing Director on July 4th 2018.
The Trust is now entering the deployment phase and we are assisting them with this working in a Programme Management capacity.
