Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership is planning to use OLM’s cloud based Eclipse platform as part of its digital transformation.

CGI, the IT services provider for Glasgow City Council, has invested in the software to provide a single database for health and social care.

The partners are planning to streamline the relevant processes using OLM’s best practice forms and procedures and amending the features to local practices.

CGI said that Eclipse is the only software to meet the Scottish Government’s ‘cloud first’ agenda and the Scottish Digital Health and Care Strategy on cloud.

Sharon Wearing, chief officer for finance and resources at the Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership, said: “A single cloud platform covering case management, citizen engagement, finance and commissioning will be more convenient and efficient.

“Eclipse will help deliver better services by improving our strategic response to service users. The platform supports our needs now and is adaptable for future requirements.”
