GP IT Futures Lot 1: Continuing our growth into 2020 and beyond

Black Pear’s solutions are now all on GP IT Futures ensuring our technology continues to improve the care for millions of patients.

The framework replaces GP Systems of Choice (GPSoC) and means the NHS has approved our products centrally for funding.

It unleashes the potential of Core to tackle the biggest challenges facing the NHS through smart integration of services.

We worked tirelessly to reach Go Live on GPSoC in July 2018, which has hugely simplified the process for surgeries seeking to adopt our solutions.

And GP IT Futures has broadened out the structure to include a much wider range of capabilities to reflect a massive sustained growth in digital healthcare.
This has meant all of our products are supported, whilst only our shared plans were on GPSoC.

Our Core appointments systems, shared care plans and record sharing technology are now all approved to empower clinicians across NHS England.

It means surgeries that want our solutions can adopt them much faster as they have been given the green light centrally – cutting out lengthy procurement procedures. That’s because they have been deemed vital for the future of the NHS.

Sean O’Mahoney, Black Pear Chief Operating Officer, said:

We are incredibly proud to get onto GP IT Futures continuing on from our success with GPSoC. What is particularly pleasing is how the new framework is based all around capabilities, an approach we have been championing on for the past five years. It means every product on GP IT Futures is geared towards giving patients and clinicians what they need to meet the biggest challenges. Our products fit into three capability categories on GP IT Futures – shared care plans, unified care records and cross-organisation appointment booking systems. Building on our success working with more than 2,000 GP practices and associated health and care organisations, this means our rapid adoption by CCGs, STPs and LHCR’s is set to continue into the new year. Using our unique blend of proven technical capabilities and health informatics expertise, we will support more commissioners, providers and patients. We will help them leverage the benefits from digitally enabled but clinically led healthcare to help realise the GP IT Futures goals and vision.
