Harris Corporation Teams With BT To Improve Health And Social Care Interoperability In The United Kingdom

Stocks in this article: HRS

Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, was selected by BT, one of world’s largest leading providers of communications services and solutions, to supply clinical portal solutions for health and social care organizations across the U.K.’s National Health Service (NHS) and wider public sector.

Harris will bundle its clinical integration platform with BT’s infrastructure and components to improve interoperability among health and social care providers in the NHS. This integrated solution will allow providers and patients to access information contained within existing systems to optimize patient care while controlling costs.

“Patients and providers throughout the UK face major challenges coordinating information across different health and social care systems,” said Dr. Vishal Agrawal, president, Harris Healthcare Solutions. “Our clinical integration platform, combined with BT’s solutions, will drive health information interoperability across the continuum of care in the NHS.”

Harris’ clinical integration platform combines customizable, intuitive web-based portals with strong security to provide a single point of access for patients and providers. The platform’s referral management component tracks the life cycle of a patient’s care while its secure messaging component enables users to send and receive private messages with an electronic health record.

“We’re pleased to be working with Harris to put patients at the center of their care across the UK and around the world. As an integral part of BT’s interoperability solution, together we’re focused on improving the quality of care while reducing the cost,” stated Ian Dalton, president, BT Global Health. “Our collective goal is to help health and social care organizations develop into a more efficient and connected community and ultimately create a new world of care.”

A recognized leader in clinical connectivity, collaboration, and intelligence solutions, Harris offers a full range of interoperability solutions, including IT infrastructure and management, clinical workflow and analytics, health information exchange, and imaging. Harris solutions improve healthcare quality, safety, efficiency, cost and outcomes by ensuring that the right information travels, with security and privacy, to the right person, at the right time, on the right device, at the point of care.
