(PRWeb UK) February 10, 2011
Leading Cerner Millennium® service providers, Apira and TCM Solutions, have announced a strategic partnership to provide complete, end-to-end deployment and support services for trusts implementing Cerner Millennium®.
Healthcare IT deployment, health management, and informatics specialist, Apira, will collaborate with support services provider TCM Solutions, to enable a joined-up approach to Cerner Millennium® implementations for trusts of any size and scale. Both organisations, which have three decades of combined experience in delivering healthcare IT solutions, have worked extensively with Cerner Millennium®.
Apira’s Cerner Millennium® experience includes project management and data migration work in the UK and the Middle East, including Buckinghamshire Hospitals and the Wareed Programme in the UAE. TCM Solutions has provided Cerner Millennium® support services to BT for the past 6 years as part of the National Programme for IT.
Mark Jones, Managing Director at Apira, comments on the partnership: “The deployment of Cerner Millennium® is a strategic undertaking that requires a range of specialist skills and knowledge. This partnership gives us a rich resource pool, combining Apira’s trust-side project experience with TCM Solutions’ support, release management, and service management expertise.”
Tony Craig, CEO of TCM Solutions, adds: “Our strategic alliance is timely due to the recent announcement of a number of Cerner deployments and we look forward to having the opportunity of strengthening and complementing the expertise of trust teams, adding value and helping to ensure a successful outcome.”
The collaboration will help healthcare providers mitigate the inherent risks associated with disjointed internal and external resourcing for roles within a Cerner deployment including project managers, best practice change agents, trainers, back-office support specialists and go-live support.
