iPLATO has been awarded a contract on Lot 1 of the GP Systems of Choice (GPSoC) Framework. As well as Principal Clinical Systems such as EMIS and Vision the centrally funded Lot 1 Framework includes the provision of Patient Facing Services that facilitate secure patient-clinician communication, patient access to records, appointment booking and ordering of repeat prescriptions. The company will be offering Patient Facing Services specifically designed for mobile phones under GPSoC.
“Digital GP services will transform the patient experience for over 50 million patients across NHS England under this framework and we welcome the opportunity to contribute to this ambitious programme.” said Tobias Alpsten, CEO at iPLATO. “The addition of appointment booking, prescription management and access to records represent a natural evolution of the existing iPLATO offering and central NHS funding is of course great news for patients, our CCG partners and GP practice users in England. Being on this framework will allow us to significantly extend the company’s mobile patient services that are currently available to more than 6 million patients in the UK. With our mobile expertise and focus iPLATO will become an essential component of any CCG’s digital strategy.”
