Framework can be used to procure cloud-based services for NHS bodies
IMS MAXIMS has been awarded a place on the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) new Digital Outcomes and Specialists (DOS) Framework.
The DOS Framework is one of three complementary frameworks that all public sector organisations, including agencies and arm’s-length bodies, can use to procure cloud-based services, such as Cloud specialists that can work on DOS digital projects and physical data centre space, for example Crown Hosting.
IMS MAXIMS has successfully been listed in the two DOS Framework categories it applied for - to supply services for Digital Outcomes and to supply Digital Specialists.
Public-sector organisations can use the Digital Outcomes category to procure IMS MAXIMS’ team of experts, who jointly have over 100 years of health IT know-how and can offer advice on the design, development, delivery and support of health IT projects.
For the Digital Specialists category, clients can procure one or more of IMS MAXIMS individual specialists, who will deliver a specific output to a healthcare institution, with defined deliverables on a service, programme or project.
Commenting on the news, Leesa Ewing, commercial director at IMS MAXIMS said: “We are delighted to have been awarded a place on this important framework. It follows similar recent successes with appointments to G Cloud 6 and 7 and the NHS Shared Business Services Frameworks, ensuring customers across the public sector, but in particular the NHS, can access and implement the complete openMAXIMS offering.
“The DOS Framework works hand in hand with G Cloud - giving NHS customers the option to quickly and effectively identify suppliers that can offer high-quality support services to G Cloud products. These services will help supplement the expertise and skills of staff in the NHS, and ensure technology transformation projects successfully underpin service delivery.
“It’s also a highly-cost-effective way for customers to purchase from IMS MAXIMS without the overhead and associated costs of a lengthy OJEU procurement.”
