UCLPartners Procurement Service on behalf of Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust (GOSH) is seeking to procure a care pathway management system and related services. Children at GOSH are typically suffering from complex, long-term and multiple conditions and the system must support their care through the following capabilities: Graphical tools for the design of complex clinical pathway models in terms of tasks, teams, roles and their interactions; the deployment of pathway models as executable processes (of which several may run concurrently for any patient); the capture of rich real-time data as a by-product of pathway management; making information available to people making clinical decisions, based upon information about the patient, carer and pathway state, which may include data specific to the pathway, the patient’s wider health record, and any other information that may be relevant to decisions about the patient’s care; the presentation to decision makers of options for the future trajectory of pathways, including ranking and rationale; the flexible and configurable presentation of information to users based on the overall patient state, and optimised to the user’s device, including mobile as well as desktop formats; the ability to define time constraints on tasks and responses to system events or states; the recording of actions, events and observations against pathways, either through direct user entry or through interfaces with other systems; the persistence of transactional data for the life of the pathway instance and beyond; the management of concurrent pathways and there interactions – i.e. the impact of a patient being on more than one pathway at the same time (not unusual at GOSH); making pathway execution data available to other systems through a wide variety of interfacing patterns and transports; compliance with information exchange standards, including HL7, IHE and the NHS ITK; interaction with user interfaces, whether developed using tools native to the system or other systems; the monitoring of overall pathway activity for the purposes of management, governance and improvement; a very high degree of local configurability, including the ability to be used by non-technical staff; a very high degree of protection for confidential information. The trust also requires the following services in respect of the systems described above: installation and implementation, including pre-configuration of health-orientated messages and operations; training on development and management tools; on-going support and upgrades; consultancy and development services.
