On 1 September, 6pm Holdings plc announced on their website that it was awarded a contract to develop a healthcare solution for HR at the Royal Free Hampstead NHS Trust, which includes a major London teaching hospital, the Royal Free Hospital.
6pm stated that it will be delivering around 40 HR workflow processes. The solution being developed is also designed to integrate with the Electronic Staff Record (ESR) application.
Once developed, this solution will be licensed to other Trusts by 6pm, the Royal Free Hospital and EMC Corporation, which is the world’s leading developer and provider of information infrastructure technology and solutions.
After completion, this healthcare solution will then be offered nationwide to other Trusts by 6pm, the Royal Free and EMC Corporation as a managed service through a nominated data centre.
Steve Wightman, Executive Director of 6pm commented “This is a very exciting project for 6pm as it starts to make effective use of workflow technology within the NHS. The business case for other Trusts using this solution is compelling and we expect a significant uptake in the coming months.”
