PA Consulting Group has been selected to provide telehealth and telecare consulting advice to the public sector by Eastern Shires Purchasing Organisation (ESPO), one of the UK's largest public sector procurement organisations.
ESPO, on behalf of Pro5, a collaboration between four buying organisations, has developed a framework with lots including telehealth and telecare managed services, and telehealth and telecare consultancy services. The framework enables anyone in the public sector to buy these solutions using a pre-qualified route, saving time and cost in the procurement process.
PA has been selected for both of these lots until the end of 2017.
Steve Carefull, PA social care expert said: “PA has built a great deal of experience and insight in how to maximise the impact and value of assistive technology. Our managed service experience is unique among consulting firms and this gives us a true understanding of how to make telecare work at scale in practice. The appointment by ESPO to their framework recognises this and will enable buyers in the public services to come to us for leading-edge advice and support from our team of experts.”
John Doherty, director of ESPO, said: “This new framework, which will run for four years, opens up telehealth and telecare services to everyone in the public services, whether they are from a local authority, the NHS and emergency services, or central government. The framework has already attracted a lot of interest, with the catalogue service up and running in just weeks.”
