We chose to work with Healthcare Computing (HC) when we wanted to move our practices to hosted GP clinical systems which required new local domain controllers to be installed. At the same time we chose to migrate practices’ email services away from local MS exchange servers to NHS mail. This was a huge and challenging project, and what so impressed me about HC was the speed with which they were able to carry out the work. HC installed a new server at
every site and migrated most of our surgeries to NHS Mail. The work took about 6 months to upgrade and switch onsite configuration.
Throughout the project I was impressed with the excellent communications HC provided and the almost continual contact. In addition, the practices have reported back that HC’s staff was extremely professional and sensitive to the clinical environment. Discretion is paramount in this situation, and HC are used to this due to their experience in this field. The team were happy to answer any questions or meet any additional needs regarding equipment issues.
Healthcare Computing have a diverse skillset and huge experience of working in this niche industry, and were therefore invaluable in progressing and completing this project. Their work enabled me to upgrade GP domain servers and most importantly, to ensure that practices are prepared for changes post April 2013.
Without them we would have been in a mess with much of the GP server infrastructure remaining in an obsolete state!
