Induction Switch named Supplier on NHSX Clinical Communications Procurement Framework


Induction Healthcare, a leading healthcare technology company that helps healthcare professionals deliver better care more efficiently, today announces that its Induction Switch platform has been awarded the status of Supplier on the Clinical Communications Procurement Framework run by the National Commercial and Procurement Hub on behalf of NHSX, a joint unit dedicated to driving forward the digital transformation of care in the UK.


The Procurement Framework has been established to support NHS organisations by providing clinicians with access to a wide range of dedicated clinical facing communication and task management tools to accelerate the adoption of proven technologies. The Framework has been granted £3 million of government funding to aid the move towards more modern forms of communication and to phase out pagers by the end of 2021.1 The Framework is scheduled to run from 3 August 2020 to 3 August 2022, with a possible extension of a further 12 months.2


Induction Healthcare products are routinely used by hundreds of thousands of NHS staff and patients, and have been heavily relied upon during the COVID-19 pandemic to deliver care under challenging conditions. The inclusion of Induction Switch on this framework provides strong validation of the Company's high standards of Clinical Safety, Data Security and Information Governance, further supported by the Company's ISO 27001, ISO 9001, Cyber Essentials, and NHS DSPT certifications .


Hugo Stephenson, joint CEO of Induction, commented: "We are proud to have been selected for the NHSX Clinical Communications Procurement Framework and are confident it will enable easier access to clinical facing communication and task management tools used by hundreds of thousands of NHS staff across the UK on a daily basis. This success highlights, once again, the strength of Induction's technology and its commitment to improve the delivery of care."


As the procurement framework has now been officially launched, the Company expects procurement activity across the NHS to begin in the near future.
