Allocate Software and University Hospital Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust agree a new contract providing the Trust with a further 7 years access to HealthAssure, the cloud based governance, risk and compliance software.

University Hospital Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust started using HealthAssure in 2006, when it was procured by the board to support the Trust’s evolving governance framework. The software is used to collect evidence and assess assurance against all aspects of UHBs own quality standards as well as those of regulatory bodies, such as the CQC

Today the software is used by over 180 people across the Trust and this new contract will see the Trust extend its use of the software to also include applications to manage NICE Guidelines and Quality Standards.

 

Bob Hibberd, Head of Clinical Risk and Compliance, University Hospitals Birmingham, said:

“We have developed our governance framework utilising the HealthAssure software. ¬†We have a very positive and collaborative relationship with Allocate. They are responsive to our changing needs and which means we have been able to influence the product direction.”

 

Ian Bowles, CEO, Allocate Software, said:

“University Hospital Birmingham is regarded as a leader and innovator in its use and development of quality monitoring software, so it is a great testimony that they wish to continue using HealthAssure for a further seven years.”
