NHS Reforms Expected To Lead To Increased IT Spending

Lifesize - Video Conferencing

Reforms to the organisational structure of the NHS are expected to loosen the purse strings when it comes to IT budgets, according to analysts.

To date, the impending transition from Primary Care Trusts to a combination of Commissioning Support Units and Clinical Commissioning Groups has seen procurement decisions delayed or put on hold, but that’s all set to change say analyst house TechMarketView.

"Going forwards, it seems CSUs will be important customers for SITS [software IT suppliers] in primary care,” said Tola Sargeant, research director, TechMarketView. “Now the new organisations are formally in place, we expect the purse strings to loosen further, although there is still much uncertainty in the market."

The NHS is one of the largest employers in the world. With a renewed focus on making it more efficient, telemedicine has become a hot topic in healthcare, with Lifesize high-definition video conferencing already being adopted by medical professionals around the world.

Healthcare is also expected to become a key market for wireless technology, with Meru Network’s virtualised wireless network solutions proven to perform in high density healthcare environments.
