Our IT services for healthcare

The NHS is challenged by budgetary constraints, yet at the same time, is experiencing significant growth in the demand for its services, caused by an aging population and an increasing demand for online digital services.

This situation has resulted in healthcare trusts having to fundamentally review the services they provide and how they are delivered. Typically, one of the principle methods of achieving more cost effective service delivery is through investment in technology and making healthcare services available across digital channels.

With extensive experience of supporting healthcare trusts, Capita understands the challenges of IT in healthcare. We offer a variety of IT services ranging from strategic consulting; infrastructure support; application development; clinical systems support to a fully managed outsourced service to help you meet your business and IT objectives.
