Responding to the results of the EU Referendum, Shane Tickell, CEO, said:
"We are entering a new era for the UK, and businesses with offices here, such as ourselves. It isn't without its challenges. The development of new trade agreements with our European and global partners will be complex and gradual, but we are a nation of immense strength and resolve that can meet these challenges. We too, are a company, of extreme commitment and passion, and continue to see the UK as being one of the best places to invest and grow businesses like ours.
"With 30 years of experience of working with the healthcare sector in the UK, we are well placed to support our customers as they plan for the new future.
IMS MAXIMS is one of twenty-nine industry leading organisations that have come together to create INTEROPen, a supplier action group aimed at accelerating the development of open standards for interoperability in the health and social care sector.
The group has been set-up to support the delivery of the
Code4Health Interoperability Community
that was launched by NHS England in November 2015, by providing a forum for suppliers to collaborate on the design and application of technical interoperability standards.
The group has identified four key areas that, if interoperability standards are effectively developed, will deliver demonstrable shared care across care settings.
Our take on this year's NHS Confederation Conference
In case you missed it, a core focus at this year's NHS Confederation Conference was looking at how the NHS can 'innovate, digitise and think differently' in light of warnings from Simon Stevens (Chief Executive, NHS England) that we can expect a U shaped funding settlement and a 'resetting' of finances with immediate effect.
In Computer Weekly, our CEO, Shane Tickell responds
, by discussing off-balance sheet investment in digital that means service providers can use technology to deliver better and safer care, whilst also addressing their run rates.
At our exhibition stand we were discussing our exciting new suite of applications (Astute), which provides hospitals with one solution that manages all the clinical, operational and financial needs now and aspirations of the Five Year Forward View.
