The NHS Frontline Digitisation Programme’s focus to date has rightly been on supporting those Trusts with limited digital capability and systems, but what about those early adopter Trusts whose first-generation electronic patient records (EPR) contracts are coming up for renewal over the next couple of years?

A transformational digital/IT project like an EPR is a major undertaking – it requires significant time and resource (not to mention money) right the way through from the strategy/pre-procurement phase to a successful up and running system that works for the users and starts to deliver the promised benefits. And in the context of all the other competing financial and operational pressures facing Trusts and Integrated Care Boards (ICBs), unless a Trust is seriously unhappy with the incumbent supplier and/or their product (or due to ICB convergence it's required to take a different route), most will be looking at ways to compliantly re-contract with that incumbent for a further period beyond the original contract without having to run a full procurement process.

Convenzis Healthcare Event testimonials

What our clients say about us

It was great to join the Convenzis team again for the patient flow event. As always, the team were incredibly accommodating and happy to help. The quality of attendees is always of a high standard and relevant to the patient flow and to us also. We continue to have great discussions and footfall around our stand with no need to try and encourage people to come and see us. Really positive event for us and we look forward to working with Convenzis in the future.

My colleague and I presented at the NHS workforce conference 2023, 19 September. The support and guidance we received from the Convenzis team in the run up to our presentation slot was great, well timed and perfectly pitched. The event itself, again was expertly organised. The conference was well Chaired by Sean, who was very engaging. As an audience member as well as a panel member, I would definitely work with the Convenzis team again.


Covenzis delivered an excellent meeting like always - a hubbub of activity focused on future developments within NHS pathology laboratories

Working with Convenzis is a stress-free and a rewarding experience, with fantastic engagement from a highly targeted and relevant audience


I worked with Convenzis, primarily Dan, for the first time this year, putting together a bespoke online event for IBM. He has always been so responsive and accommodating. The team always remained professional and helpful – despite the many demands from our side! They were very keen for us to maximise on the investment and revisit those attendees who had not committed to follow ups.
It was an absolute pleasure doing business with Convenzis and I know there will be more opportunities next year. Looking forward to it!
