Newbury, 21st September 2010 - 2e2, a leading provider of mission-critical IT services, today announced its partnership with MedeAnalytics, a leading provider of healthcare performance management solutions in the , to deliver a web-based, managed analytics platform to the healthcare market. The partnership supports 2e2’s recent framework agreement award for IT Managed Services by Buying Solutions, the national procurement partner for public services which is part of the Efficiency and Reform Group within the Cabinet Office. The Model Contract, in place for two years (with the option of two further one-year extensions), began in August 2010 and will see 2e2 deliver a range of cost-effective IT managed services to the public sector.
MedeAnalytics delivers hosted healthcare performance analytics through the use of business intelligence to improve financial, operational and clinical performance. It already enables over 800 healthcare organisations to measure key metrics necessary to successfully manage their business. MedeAnalytics’ solutions are delivered using a Software-as-a-Service model, which will be hosted within 2e2’s dedicated data centres, and will help analyse disparate clinical, operational and financial data. The fully integrated solution transforms the culture within healthcare organisations into one of transparency and accountability. This allows decisions to be based on actual and current data, delivering a quick and sustainable return on investment (ROI).
Paul Fitzsimmons, managing director at MedeAnalytics, said, “The NHS is awash with data, not information. This data is siloed, providing clinicians and managers with little insight into the collective inefficiencies within the system. The key to unlocking this information is intelligent informatics that assist clinician-led decisions by providing relevant and timely information in a format with which they can relate. MedeAnalytics’ solutions provide innovative technology. Our solution is hosted, meaning maintenance is outsourced and managed by MedeAnalytics, with little reliance on the PCT, GP practice or clinician. Working with 2e2 will enable us to further establish MedeAnalytics as a leading provider of healthcare performance management solutions, assisting healthcare organisations in meeting government-led cuts and the forthcoming challenges that will require both cost savings and increased productivity within the NHS.”
Commenting on the partnership, Nathan Marke, chief technology officer of 2e2, said, “The partnership with MedeAnalytics demonstrates 2e2’s commitment to offering the healthcare market complete, mature solutions that will drive efficiencies and deliver value for money. It will also further strengthen the relationships with existing customers and provide a platform for both parties to engage with prospective clients. We look forward to working with MedeAnalytics and are confident that together we can rapidly deliver proven, scalable and trusted solutions to the healthcare market.”
