As Novari Health’s new director of UK business development, Angela Single will be a “key driver” of the company’s mission to positively impact the NHS and improve patient access to care
Novari Health has made a “pivotal” appointment to its UK team. In her new role as director, UK business development, Angela Single is responsible for forging strategic partnerships with Integrated Care Boards (ICBs), Integrated Care Systems (ICSs), acute trusts, and clinical networks.
A highly experienced digital health executive with a background in nursing, Single will “showcase” how Novari Health’s solutions can deliver tangible benefits to the NHS. The company expects her to be a “key driver” of its mission to positively impact the NHS and help improve patient access to care.
Single’s prior roles include serving as a non-executive director and digital advisor at Cambridge and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust. She has held senior global positions at BT Health and Bridgehead Software, where she served as the senior director for business development and EMEA partnerships. At a national level, she led collaborative efforts between the industry and technology-enabled care.
Her clinical background is in oncology and community nursing. Single is also an experienced NHS leader, having previously held the positions of general manager for acute services at Hinchingbrooke Healthcare NHS Trust (now North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust) and deputy chief nurse at North Middlesex University NHS Trust.
“I am very excited to have joined a dynamic and fast-growing team with Novari Health,” said Single. “Novari’s solutions have already demonstrated how they can increase access to care, strengthen navigation of healthcare systems, improve waiting times, and reduce backlogs in other national healthcare systems. We are delighted to be bringing these innovative solutions to the UK.”
Equitable and timely
She added that “enhancing the patient experience and ensuring equitable and timely access to care is at the core of everything we do”.
John Sinclair, chief executive officer of Novari Health UK, said Single’s clinical, administrative, and digital health experience “make her an invaluable addition to the Novari global team.
“Angela’s leadership will undoubtedly play a pivotal role in forging essential partnerships and demonstrating how Novari Health solutions can bring lasting benefits to the NHS. We look forward to achieving new milestones together as we continue our mission to improve patient access to care and the efficiency of the NHS.”
Novari’s access to care software platform helps improve patient access to care, waiting times, and drives efficiencies for a wide variety of health care services, from surgery to mental health. From its beginnings in Canada in 2003, the company has focused exclusively on helping publicly funded healthcare systems to improve access to care.
Its software platform specialises in referral management, customised referral workflows, central intake (hub) models, and waiting list management. These solutions have been deployed across Canada and Australia to help streamline processes, optimise patient flow, and ensure timely treatment for patients across various specialties.
Novari’s technologies are designed to complement and integrate with a host of other clinical and administrative IT systems, including EPRs, PAS, EMPIs, PACS, eReferral, registries, and patient engagement systems. The company uses a mix of integration technologies including FHIR, HL7, DICOM, and APIs.
Single joins a diverse team of professionals with the “collective expertise” to design, build, and implement “robust solutions” that improve access to care and enhance healthcare efficiency, said Sinclair.
He added: “Angela is a wonderful addition to the Novari family and we are confident that her presence will support our mission of positively impacting patient care.”
