How can technology and innovation transform how you work? Does your existing IT infrastructure meet your needs and support you in achieving your clinical or business objectives? Our IT consultants take a holistic view of your organisation, your existing IT and your future requirements in order to help you build a sustainable IT strategy and technology roadmap.
Business and clinical transformation programmes often require changes to existing IT infrastructure and/or supporting technology - including the integration of innovative new technology - in order to ensure organisations are fully in line with the evolving NHS digital strategy.
NHS Informatics Merseyside provides specialist advice on all aspects of healthcare technology in order to best support the strategic and day-to-day business and clinical requirements of those we work with. Whether you are building a new technology strategy for your organisation or planning a SharePoint intranet roll out, our specialists take the time to understand your objectives and help you meet your goals.
Budget management and financial planning
Informatics Merseyside has a wealth of experience in working with a range of NHS organisations to review and advise on their budgetary spend in relation to IT services.
Budget constraints and efficiency targets has led to NHS organisations looking to use technology innovatively in order to make savings and improve care through more efficient ways of working. With this in mind, Informatics Merseyside’s technology consultants can provide budgetary management advice and support to help you fully understand the cost of running an IT service in line with your organisation’s strategic plans.
