Cloud-collaboration vendor Huddle has revealed a 44% increase in NHS customer wins, indicating a clear shift toward cloud solutions among organisations under the health service’s umbrella.
The figures correspond to the first six months of Huddle’s financial year in comparison with the same period last year, and are likely to contribute to a record year for NHS contracts at the company.
Huddle provides organisations with a secure central environment where all relevant parties involved in a project, such as Trusts, CCGs, and industry and technology partners, can access, store, share and work on content together.
Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust, NHS Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and Yeovil District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust are amongst those that invested in the technology in their continued migration to cloud platforms.
“It has been a phenomenal year so far for the cloud in the NHS,” said Alastair Mitchell, CEO at Huddle. “Healthcare organisations are now looking for ways to support an increasingly mobile workforce and provide people with secure access to the information they need regardless of their location.
“Healthcare reforms in the NHS have also increased demand for flexible, agile cloud-based technologies that can be up and running within hours and help realise efficiencies.”
Additional Huddle healthcare customers include NHS 24, Advancing Quality, Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust, Ealing Hospital NHS Trust and the Coleridge Medical Centre.
