Servelec Healthcare has been awarded preferred bidder status by a new client for its first implementation of PICs; a clinical decision support system developed by University Hospitals Birmingham, for which Servelec is the sole distributor. Subject to the finalisation of the contract, PICs will be implemented during the second half of the year and into 2016.

Servelec Aura, which was acquired in May 2015 and is part of Servelec Healthcare, has been confirmed as preferred bidder for its patient flow software; Flow, which will be implemented at a 554-bed acute hospital by the end of the year.

The deployment will support the trust in the effective use of beds and clinical resourcing as part of a project designed to release more time for direct patient care, improve care quality and safety and reduce costs.

Servelec has confirmed that Nottingham Healthcare will continue to use RiO software in its mental and community health departments, following an open procurement process.

The healthcare team is implementing 20 mental and community health contracts, 18 of which include hosting services. Ten contracts are already live and the remaining 10 contracts are on schedule to be fully live before the NHS deadline to exit the National Programme by October 2015.

In social care, Servelec Corelogic has been awarded a contract for a new adult, children’s and finance case management system, replacing an existing in-house system. This is Servelec Corelogic’s fourth win this year building on the nine wins in 2014. Servelec Corelogic now works with 53 local authority customers across the UK.

Alan Stubbs, CEO of Servelec Group, said: “These successes for Servelec Health & Social Care are encouraging, continuing the momentum in the business following our strong performance in the London Refresh. I am particularly pleased with the successes for PICs and Flow, which mark milestones for Servelec Healthcare and show the potential for our products in these new areas.”

The company recently moved premises from Dinnington into a new 15, 000 sq ft site in Eckington, south of Sheffield.
