London, UK (PRWEB UK) 12 December 2011
NHS Commercial Solutions has announced a procurement framework to enable NHS bodies to procure digital dictation and speech recognition solutions quickly, easily and economically.
BigHand were awarded onto the Framework as the highest ranked supplier following a full European procurement process, which included evaluations assessing Financial Stability, Professional Capability, Technical Capability, Experience and Value for Money.
The Framework benefits NHS trusts by providing the ability to procure a digital dictation and speech recognition solution through a reduced number of suppliers without the requirement of a lengthy procurement process.
James Kippenberger, Managing Director, BigHand, UK Healthcare commented;
"To see BigHand named as the highest scoring supplier for both digital dictation and speech recognition, following a process this thorough and complete, is very pleasing. The BigHand team worked hard to demonstrate clearly to NHS Commercial Solutions how we partner with all our NHS customers individually to deliver real value for them. The competition is significant and this outcome acts as an independent vote on quality for what BigHand offers its customers.
We hope this Framework now makes it easy for other Trusts to join the expanding BigHand client base, and start benefiting immediately from our services, as well as learning from each other, to continually improve their clinical correspondence processes."
BigHand now has 48 deployments in the UK Healthcare market, importantly including 26 NHS Trust wide rollouts incorporating over 17,000 users.
