Medicomms selected for NHSX procurement initiative

All-in-one mobile application Medicomms is now available to all NHS Trusts via the new NHSX framework, which looks to accelerate efficiency within the NHS using communication and task management technologies.

Set to be available as a managed and hosted solution via Armour partner Nine23, the app will play its part in the goal to phase out pagers by the end of 2021 by offering its internal communication convergence capabilities, which will allow staff to share sensitive patient data more securely.

The solution can be leveraged via the NHS-accredited FLEX platform, which enables healthcare professionals to securely use it on laptops, mobile devices and tablets, and on any operating system, including iOS, Android and Windows 10.

“We are delighted to have been included in this first iteration of the NHSX Clinical Communications Procurement Framework,” said David Holman, director at Armour Comms. “Healthcare is a key market for Armour and our partner Nine23.

“The product is evolving fast to provide additional services and added value to healthcare users, such as integration with patient records and task management apps.”

Stuart McKean, CEO of Nine23, commented: “Being awarded a contract on this NHSX framework demonstrates both Armour and Nine23’s commitment to enable front line users in the NHS to officially use today’s technology.

“The NHS front line should be able to use technology and between us we can replace those outdated systems with much better secure solutions.”

Armour Comms, which recently recorded a strong first half of 2020 financially as demand remains high for secure remote working technologies, participated in a webinar in partnership with Information Age, describing the benefits of secure, purpose-built communication apps.
