We have used our in-depth sector experience to create a game-changing and the world’s first fully integrated digital transport marketplace that connects the un-connected in healthcare, social care and local authorities. It is an assured, procured and secure cloud-based online platform that supports the NHS and Local Authorities to access an accredited network of transport providers from home to school transport to ambulances and everything in between.
The concept of an approved, assured, procured and digitised network of suppliers that become active, in real time, through one shared platform is the next generation of platform technology in this space. The cutting-edge digital technology of eProcure seamlessly brings together commissioners, providers and regulations to create a cost-effective, instant online platform for the compliant and competitive purchasing of transport across the whole spectrum of care.
eProcure gives access to a procured network of transport and taxi suppliers to support patient flow, school transport, community transport, adult social care, mental health transfers, GP urgent bookings and hospital discharges. The system has codified the rules of patient and special educational needs transport movements across the whole booking process.
eProcure is totally flexible and can support your own procured supplier network, using the pre-loaded accredited transport providers who have successfully applied to be on the appropriate framework.
It is free for organisations to use, with no set-up costs and no ongoing licence fees. eProcure is already being used by numerous organisations to benefit from significant cost savings in SEN, healthcare and community transport.
The technology has received significant direct investment from Innovate UK and the Small Business Research Initiative as part of the NHS commitment to invest in high impact digital innovation.
We want to work with a wide variety of transport suppliers for our NHS clients. We’re looking for Ambulance and Taxi services to provide emergency and non-emergency patient transport services, urgent care services, renal services, community support and non-patient transport such as bloods and samples.
We’ll support you through the process of becoming an approved supplier and you will benefit from being able to gain work with large NHS organisations on ad-hoc journeys and long term contracts.
