Healthcare IT deployment and management specialist Apira is set to support the delivery of the migration to RiO v5.4 of children's data from NHS trusts across Hampshire.
Apira have partnered with E.Novation UK, whose consortia has been awarded the contract under the National Programme for IT's ASCC framework by Hampshire PCT (NHS Hampshire and Hampshire Community Health Care).
Apira will handle data covering over 500,000 children, which will be extracted from five legacy Child Health Information Systems and migrated to Hampshire's RiO EPR system, currently under implementation by BT and local Trusts.
Mark Jones, Managing Director, Apira, comments on the project: "We're thrilled to be working closely with NHS Hampshire, Hampshire Community Healthcare and their partners and E.Novation on this large-scale migration. We have a vast amount of experience in this area, and the majority of our team have trust-side working backgrounds. This has given us a more focused approach to the processes and outcomes expected in trust environments."
Jenny Nash, CIO, NHS Hampshire, said: "I have had excellent feedback on the work the Apira team have undertaken so far which gives us all great confidence that we made the right decision and that we will meet the planned timetable."
Apira specialises in the deployment and management of IT projects across acute, mental health and primary care, and has delivered a large number of RiO and Cerner deployments in these settings.
E.Novation UK, part of the Dutch-based E.Novation Group, is a supplier of electronic communications, data integration software and services, application development services and business consultancy to the healthcare sector.
The project, already under way, is scheduled to be completed, on time, in May 2011.
