Less than 7 months after signing the contract to deliver RiO to 2gether NHS Foundation Trust, Servelec’s RiO is now live for the Trust with over 2,500 users.
2gether NHS Foundation Trust (2gether) selected Servelec Healthcare to provide RiO to support their Mental Health and Learning Disability services in November 2014, following a procurement process under the Camden and Islington Procurement Framework. The Trust provides integrated mental and social healthcare, treatment and support services across Gloucestershire and Herefordshire.
2gether adopted RiO as it provides more flexibility and control over system design and configuration enabling the system to be more quickly aligned to Trust requirements. It also protects the considerable investment made by the Trust over the preceding 10yrs in Clinical Systems. They now have over 2,500 RiO users, are connected to the Spine Personal Demographic Service (PDS) and RiO is fully hosted by Servelec Healthcare on a dedicated platform, providing complete disaster recovery services.
During 2105 2gether will undertake a Trust wide rollout of RiO Mobile, Servelec’s mobile connected and disconnected working solution, which will support improvements in the quality of service delivery for service users and staff.
Ruth Wethey, Clinical Systems Manager, 2gether NHS Foundation Trust said:
“2gether chose Servelec Healthcare’s EPR solution in November 2014 which we are branding across the Trust as 2gether RiO. It was important that we chose a system that was flexible and could be advanced to meet the Trust’s current and future needs. Our purpose is to make life better through delivering quality services and 2gether RiO provides the capability to help us with this. We look forward to developing 2gether RiO, working with Servelec and adopting their mobile solution as technology will enable greater safety and support for service users as well as new ways of working for staff.”
Lindsay Dransfield Servelec Healthcare’s Sales Director said:
“We were delighted when 2gether NHS Foundation Trust chose RiO and Servelec as their partner and we are pleased with the success of the go live. We worked closely with the Trust to ensure delivery on time and budget and look forward to working further with the Trust to deliver the next phase of the project, supporting them to develop new and improved services.”
