System C: Care Alliance commitment to clinical excellence for 350,000 users

The System C & Graphnet Care Alliance has announced a series of new initiatives building on its existing ties with NHS clinicians, industry and academia. Taken together, the package is designed to meet the recommendations of various national reviews into delivering the digital future for the NHS.

Over a 30-year history of supporting health and social care in the UK, the System C & Graphnet Care Alliance has built a solid base of clinical informatics expertise. In order to deliver its watchword of clinical usability, it has made it a priority to employ clinicians and former NHS staff on the design, development and deployment of its software.

More recently, the companies’ internal structures have developed to reflect the emergence of the new chief clinical information officer (CCIO) and chief nursing information officer (CNIO) roles in the NHS, under senior clinicians Dr Jon Shaw, the alliance’s director of clinical product strategy, and Dr Jonathan Bloor, its medical director.

Dr Shaw explained: “Altogether, the System & Graphnet Care Alliance has over 350,000 users of its software, all of them working within the NHS and social care.  A major focus for us has to be on developing software that doesn’t just automate processes but which also helps make care professionals jobs that little bit easier and more enjoyable,” he said.  “We believe that patient care will inevitably benefit from well-designed systems which support the clinical workflow.”
