NHS IC partners with SAS to provide joined-up information, improving patient care across the NHS

Thursday, May 21, 2009

SAS has partnered with the NHS Information Centre (NHS IC) to build a standardised data management environment and business analytics platform that will integrate, manage and analyse information across the NHS. SAS, the leader in Business Analytics software and services, will help the NHS IC to improve the level of service to NHS trusts and the department of health, resulting in better and more efficient care for patients in primary, community, hospital and social care.

Tim Straughan, the NHS IC Chief Executive says: “Health services worldwide face three main challenges. Firstly, improving the quality of care to meet the expectations of patients; secondly coping with economic downturn; and thirdly - the NHS IC’s focus - having access to information and using it effectively to address the first two. The NHS IC recognises the need to make better use of information across the board to meet these challenges. Working with SAS, we can achieve a more effective end-to-end process for sharing information across the NHS, whilst ensuring information quality, security and governance.”
