The Mid and South Essex Integrated Care Board has agreed on a deal with the NHS Arden and GEM (General East Midlands) Commissioning Support Unit for the provision of a business intelligence platform and services.

The agreement reflects an element of the ICB’s digital vision that places an emphasise of data solutions to provide insights for decision making and to support data sharing among care providers in the region.

The contract is scheduled to become active in July and run for at least two years with a value just short of £6 million, and there is an option to extend for another two and take the value to £11.9 million.

It has been agreed under the NHS Shared Business Services’ Multidisciplinary Consultancy Service framework.

A Mid and South Essex ICB board paper from last year refers to plan for a strategic data platform to provide insights on the impact of preventative activities in public health and forecasting the needs in future service provision.

NHS Arden and GEM Commissioning Support Unit provides a number of services, including in technology and data, for NHS bodies and has a number of delivery partners.
