As of 2nd July 2018, NHS Trusts are now able to purchase Electronic Prescribing and Digital Pathology solutions from Dedalus as SaaS (Software-as-a-Service).  This Cloud offering will not only negate the need for a full tender process but it will also simplify and shorten procurement timescales and reduce the overall cost of ownership.  For those hospitals wishing to stay inside tight budgets and buy via the online ‘Digital Marketplace’ Dedalus UK also has some invaluable proof-points that can help prepare the business cases.

This SaaS offering provides end users with a scalable solution and automatic updates of the software all for a monthly fee with little or no upfront hardware or license costs.  With security a major issue in healthcare organisations, with numerous security breaches making the UK news, the Cloud ensures the very latest data and internet security standards are in play.

With a recent UK report showing 1/3rd of NHS Trusts are already delivering part of their infrastructure through the Cloud and a further 39% are planning to do so within the next two years – this is a very timely announcement for Dedalus.
