Orion Health wins more UK NHS business

New modules rolled out to 25,000 users at NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Health Board.

Orion Health is introducing two new modules and extended use of another at one of its largest customers, the NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Health Board in Scotland's south-west.

New Zealand-based Orion is rolling out its Medicines Reconciliation module and its Problem List module to the board's 25,000 users. In addition, use of the company's Coordinate solution is being extended by the adoption of Healthcare Pathways to support care coordination and patient transfer and handover.

The publicly funded board is one of the largest scale users of Orion Health technology through 35 hospitals, 10 specialised units and 50 other centres and clinics.

Jonathan Selby, Orion Health executive vice president for Europe, Middle East and Africa, said the new modules will provide a full picture of an individual's care needs and help reduce the potential for any medication related errors.

"NHS GGC has acted as a beacon site for others and has driven forward the integrated health information agenda in Scotland, as well as acting as a reference study for health regions across the UK and internationally," Selby said.

Orion Health dual-listed on the Australian Securities Exchange and the New Zealand bourse in November 2014 following an initial public offering of NZ$125 million, including NZ$120 million in new capital.
