Board International, the leading supplier of decision making software for enterprises, is delighted to announce a new partnership with QuintilesIMS UK&I (QI), the leading provider of integrated information and technology-enabled services to the UK and Ireland healthcare sectors. Under the partnership, Board and QI will work together to increase the efficiency and transparency of operational activities in NHS Trusts and other healthcare providers.

Board is already working with several healthcare organisations worldwide to deliver comprehensive reporting based on KPIs such as bed occupancy, length of stay and customer satisfaction as well as management activities such as financial planning, consolidated budgeting and controlling. QI, a leader in healthcare information and technology services, is a natural fit for this partnership, based on its committment to helping healthcare organisations to maximise innovation and improve services.

Peter Lane, Director of Healthcare QuintilesIMS UK&I, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Board and harnessing the incredible capabilities of their solution to benefit our NHS clients.  We believe that together we can not only show what has happened and why, but of more value is the capability to analyse vast volumes of data and provide predictive analysis.  We will work together to use the solution and our market leading analytical team to allow trusts to identify efficiencies and ways to improve patient outcomes”.

Dominic Policella, General Manager for Board UK, adds: “We can’t wait to get started with QuintilesIMS. The new relationship will allow us to bring our expertise into the NHS in partnership with an established market leader. We are already working with several international healthcare providers to help improve the efficiency of operations (and ultimately patient outcomes) in addition to delivering detailed management reporting and we will now be able to bring these efficiencies into UK and Ireland healthcare organisations.”
