The changes described in this report will continue to generate a variety of specific opportunities for ICT suppliers. These vary significantly from trust to trust, but there are common themes, such as the provision of new wireless hardware and mobile computers including tablets that may have been difficult to use in an older building; from software, where a new system may be more attractive than joining two old ones together; from ICT service transition costs such as work on system integration and consultancy; and on communications hardware to facilitate mobile computing.
Kable Market Research covers the use of ICT in the public sector across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
NHS hospital construction projects often produce significant improvements in the hospital environment, allowing ICT practices that are often impossible within the replaced buildings, such as full use of wireless.
However in these austere times funding has become a much more significant issue. There is an increase flavour of financing being undertaken which will create different opportunities for consortia or suppliers. The report considers some of the most significant PFI construction projects with their ICT implications, in order of planned opening date.
