Spark: the Technology Innovation Marketplace can help government and public sector to access new and emerging technology products. This Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) uses a filter system that helps customers find relevant suppliers. The filter system includes defined technology areas, developed with customer input, and focuses on emerging technologies predicted to have the largest impact over the next 2 to 5 years.
"This framework provides organisations with access to our innovative approach to aggregating fragmented patient journeys into managed, cohesive, and coordinated pathways, reducing patient stress and enhancing the efficiency of the healthcare organisations, both now and in the future."
With a set of pre-vetted suppliers, streamlined buying processes and best value pricing, public sector organisations can feel confident that Crown Commercial Service suppliers such as Intouch with Health will be ideally suited to help them gain the speed and efficiency needed to accelerate digital transformation initiatives.
Mike Sanders, Chief Executive Officer, Intouch with Health commented: "Inclusion on the Spark DPS framework enables Public Sector organisations to quickly identify and associate with qualified suppliers who have aims similar to the desired outcomes they require projects to achieve."
"The pressures facing healthcare, including the NHS, is immense. Burgeoning backlogs of patient appointments and consultations allied with reduced clinic capacities (as a result of COVID-19), have combined to produce a perfect storm of almost impossible demand for patient care."
"Becoming a Crown Commercial Service supplier offers us the opportunity to bring our unique knowledge and skills to public sector requirements. Specifically, this framework provides organisations with access to our innovative approach to aggregating fragmented patient journeys into managed, cohesive, and coordinated pathways, reducing patient stress and enhancing the efficiency of the healthcare organisations, both now and in the future.”
