II.2.4) Description of the procurement
Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust wishes to purchase an e-Consent Management Solution for its school aged immunisations programme.
The service currently delivers the following immunisation programmes in over 350 schools across Berkshire:
— National Flu Programme: this is offered every autumn to all children from reception up to year 6 in primary school, and from reception upwards in all of our Specialist SEN Schools,
— Human Papilloma Virus (HPV): this is a 2 dose programme (given 6 to 24 months apart) dose 1 is offered to all boys and girls in year 8 of school,
— Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio booster (Td/IPV) and Meningitis ACWY booster injections: 2 vaccinations offered to all pupils in year 9, usually delivered in the spring term,
— MMR targeted catch up programme: for children and young people who are known to have an incomplete MMR history, as commissioned by NHS England (currently this is targeting year 2 and year).
The current process is almost entirely paper based and the increase in activity is making this difficult to manage without additional resource or new ways of working. A project looking to redesign the current service was conducted during 2018 and one of the main recommendations was digitisation of the current process to make this more effective, more efficient, provide better real-time information about performance and support different ways of working.
Berkshire Healthcare therefore wishes to procure a software application to digitise the whole of the redesigned process for the delivery of immunisations to children in schools ideally from the 1.4.2019.
It is expected that digitisation will automate many of the current processes freeing up both administrative and clinical time that can be better utilised providing a higher quality and more effective immunisation service to local parents, children and schools.
The application will be required to gather consent from parents online, filter submitted consents that require review by a human, produce electronic clinic lists, collect data on the day re immunisations and upload this data into the clinical system: open RiO and be compatible with a laptop and tablet device.
The initial contract will be for 3 years with 2 x 12 month options to extend.
