Hertfordshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust has awarded a contract to Civica for its Paris IT system.

A contract award notice says the trust was looking for a “comprehensive, integrated system” to support the delivery of mental health and learning disability services that could replaces its existing patient management, clinical noting and reporting functionality.

It also wanted a system that would interface with other local and national systems and be compliant with requirements set by NHS Connecting for Health.

In a statement to eHealth Insider, a spokesperson for Hertfordshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust said: “The trust has begun a major service transformation programme and requires a comprehensive, highly flexible and configurable care record system that will support and enable a more mobile workforce.

“We are confident, following a detailed tender evaluation exercise, that the Paris Health and Social Care System from Civica is the best system to meet our current and developing needs.”

The trust is  reviewing its health and social care services in partnership with Hertfordshire County Council and its main commissioner, NHS Hertfordshire.

The contract award notice says the trust is currently using Strand Technology’s CareNotes. It wants “full implementation of the [new] solution to the level of existing functionality” within six months.

Civica bought in4tek, the developer of the Paris community, mental health and child health services system, in September 2009.
