Research and Markets: ERP: Prelude to the Lean Hospital? - UK Market Overview of EPR Transformational Plans Within Secondary Care

DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "ERP : Prelude to the lean hospital? - Market overview of EPR transformational plans within secondary care" report to their offering.

This report is a market overview of EPR transformational plans within the secondary care health market. It is intended both for those currently working with public sector healthcare clients, and those considering this market for the first time.

In the decade since the inception of the National Programme for IT, not only has technology advanced at a phenomenal pace, but the concept of clinical mobility has extended, with the number of data custodians also having increased considerably. This report considers the transition to next generation EPR solutions, which are positioned as the anchor for an informatics platform to facilitate near real-time diagnostics and mitigate risk. However, those suppliers whose portfolios do not include core EPR or modular offerings should not view the opportunity pipeline as narrow, or consider themselves excluded from the current health dialogue. Although the timings around investment priorities have in one sense been imposed, in ring-fencing one area, other infrastructure co-dependencies have come to the fore, which cannot be dismissed if enhanced functionality and safe care ae to be aligned.

This report covers the use of ICT in the public sector across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.


With contextualised examples, this report helps suppliers to:

- Design their value propositions against the backdrop of the current installed base;

- Identify openings around associated technologies to exploit;

- Consider how best to position their solutions in reflection of the pace at which individual trusts can evolve;

- Assess the mid-term potential, as the universal integrated care model begins to take shape.
