The Health Foundation works to continuously improve the quality of healthcare across the UK. Every year, this independent charity awards around £20 million to projects that make the UK’s healthcare system safer and more person-centred.
To ensure this money makes a real impact, the Health Foundation needed an IT strategy that would help them manage their grants more effectively and improve knowledge flow and collaboration, both internally and with their important external networks. Bringing together a team with expertise across healthcare and IT, we helped the foundation develop their IT vision for the next five years and identify the best technologies to make it happen.
In just 10 weeks, the PA team sought feedback from over half of the foundation’s employees around what they needed from the new IT systems and worked to test and prioritise solutions. As a result of our work, the Health Foundation now has an IT strategy that is in-line with their goals and values, and that will enable them to maximise the impacts of their awards in improving the quality of care for patients across the UK.
"PA not only delivered a compelling IT strategy, but they did it in a way that was engaging and insightful. They got to grips with our organisation, our processes and our needs very quickly; but most importantly, they really got to know our people. That meant that everyone understood how we had arrived at the result."
