Benefits of the contract
The NHS is entering a period of significant change and financial constraints. This brings a degree of uncertainty as to future requirements therefore the NHS would like to highlight to any new system/solution that the following are high on the agenda:
- Patient-centred: the patient is able to determine and control their care, and their interactions with the health system;
- Networked: works in synergy with health, social care, third sector systems to provide an overarching patient record;
- Intelligent: able to extract and display data in clear numerical, written or graphical formats
- Intuitive: simple, easy to use, does not require complex training;
- Future-proof: able to adapt to changing platforms and end-user devices and capable of supporting future development of integrated care systems;
- Innovative: use of advanced technologies, e.g. tablets, Apps, mobile working, remote telemedicine, etc.;
- Flexible: to meet new approaches to patient care;
- Agile: rapid system development to service evolving requirements;
- Local: configuration and control by individual organisations; and
- Performance: high level of service performance with continuous improvement.
The Clinical and Digital Information Systems (CDIS) Framework covers allow members to either Direct Award or Mini Competition routes to procure. The Framework Agreement can be accessed by members of the Authority which includes NHS trusts, Foundation trusts, clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), GP federations and other health and social care providers.
The benefits of using the framework are:
- Aggregation of spend and leverage of the Government’s Treasury requirement to deliver better value for money and improves on cashable savings for the Public Sector (i.e. NHS).
- Minimises duplication of effort and time taken within the procurement tendering process, (for both members and suppliers).
- Establishes strategic relationships with key suppliers to the public sector in order to gain better value for money, to take out excessive cost, improve performance and to align suppliers with the government and public sector organisational (i.e. NHS, local government) priorities.
- Members can either call-off from the framework, or re-open competition within it, removing the need for them to conduct full tender exercises or lengthy supplier evaluations each and every time they have a requirement; saving both time and cost associated with laborious procurement exercises.
- The established framework is fully compliant with the Public Contracts Regulations Act of 2015; thereby minimising any potential risk exposure.
- The framework will be managed and monitored by LPP. In managing this framework the views and requirements of members will be taken into account when reviewing and developing any future contracting arrangements.
- Improved flexibility to determine the specific requirements at the contract award and call-off order stage.
- Leveraging further economies of scale through aggregation of organisations to run successful joint mini-competitions and avoiding any duplication of effort.
- Members can have the ability to share experience, services, workload and lessons learnt for improvements to support fellow health and social care providers and/or local government authorities.
- Support health and social care providers to meet national requirements and vision across a multi-functional services, applications and solutions.
- The framework agreement can be accessed by members of the Authority which includes NHS trusts, foundation trusts, clinical commissioning groups, GP federations and other health and social care providers within the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland, as well as local authorities and other third sector organisations.
- Allow public sector organisations to have more control of local requirements and increase service performance without interfering the core requirements.
