What is the Procurement Framework?
This Framework features approved digital tools which have been proven to assist NHS organisations with communication and task management.
It’s a key part of the drive to replace hospital pagers and minimise reliance on emails, and will enable the best new technologies to be found and adopted by NHS teams.
Why was Cinapsis selected?
The Cinapsis SmartReferrals platform offers all of the required and optional features outlined in the Framework - including smartphone and desktop compatibility, single sign-on, and automatic updating of patient records.
Following a tender application in May 2020, the NHSX assessors confirmed that Cinapsis demonstrably saves time for individuals and teams, supports patient transfers of care and is scalable across the NHS.
Primary and Secondary healthcare workers are able to use the secure platform to communicate securely with colleagues through voice and video calls, instant messages or image sharing. The intuitive app and user-friendly interface enables everyone to access the advantages of digital communication tools.
Following this announcement, we’re preparing to onboard many new healthcare teams this August. We’re looking forward to playing our part in the streamlining of patient pathways and improvement of care delivery on a national scale.
