Imerja, in partnership with Insight, has been selected by Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust to provide IT infrastructure for the new build hospital, and wide-ranging IT support in a five-year contract win worth upwards of £2.5 million.
With building work for the new hospital site still underway, Imerja will install secure IT infrastructure across the campus, which will cover the hospital’s LAN, wireless LAN, telephony and unified communications solutions. The company will also provide a fully managed service across the infrastructure for a 5 year term liaising with the hospital’s internal IT teams to provide performance monitoring, fault diagnosis and rectification as well as problem and change management for the Trust’s new hospital and peripheral sites.
Cathy Fox, Associate Director of Informatics at Alder Hey: “We are delighted to be working with Imerja to implement cutting edge, robust technologies in our new hospital. These core services will underpin day-to-day activities across the Trust and will include a focus on improving the experience for our patients and their families. This will include dedicated wi-fi which will be available free of charge across the Trust.”
Ian Jackson, managing director and co-founder of Imerja added: “We are extremely proud to be associated with this prestigious project. We know the healthcare sector and are acutely aware of the pressures, the budget constraints and how critical the patient experience is, and this has been reflected within our solution. The work done at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital can be life changing so it’s crucial that we ensure everything works smoothly.”
