Betsi Cadwaladr chooses Civica’s Cito platform

Civica logoCivica has announced it has agreed a new five-year contract with Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB) worth £796k.

BCUHB is the largest health organisation in Wales, with a budget of £1.3bn and a workforce of over 17,000 staff. It has three main hospital sites at Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor, Glan Clwyd Hospital in Bodelwyddan and Wrexham Maelor Hospital, and also provides primary, community, and mental health services for the population of North Wales.

It has been a long procurement process, with BCUHB releasing the prior information notice for its Digital Health Record (DHR) project in 2018, the contract notice in 2019 and finally awarding the contract to Civica at the end of 2020. The Board was looking for a system to provide a single view of the acute patient record; support integration with local and national systems; improve and streamline working practices; and remove ‘paper’ from the system. Civica beat four other suppliers to the contract, which will see its Cito platform underpin BCUHB’s Patient Record Transition Programme.

The contract extends Civica's footprint in Wales. BCUHB is the second Welsh health board to select Cito, following Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board in 2019. Civica has been been performing well in healthcare, including recent partnerships with Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust, and Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust.
