IM&T and informatics services


The management of patient data and good record keeping protocols are an absolute must for patient safety.

The interface between primary, secondary and tertiary care remains hugely challenging, with different proprietary products at different stages of implementation, as well as the merging of data within hosted informatics services remaining a massive challenge for out-going organisations and acquiring organisations.

Our specialists ensure you have the right team behind you to advise on, and manage, your IT due diligence and contract negotiations and will work with you to resolve issues quickly.

  • Specialist IT legal advice – on software development and procurement of hardware, systems integration and rebuilds, e-commerce, outsourcing, cloud computing, alternative dispute resolution, data protection and competition.
  • Ongoing support – to help keep our clients abreast of changes in legislation and best practice.
