Planning service
How the planning service works
We practice design-thinking as a collaborative approach to co-design focused on the generation and testing of innovative ideas to solve real-world problems. Our approach puts the end-user at the heart of all decision making. Design thinking is a five-stage process:

Empathise. Our initial focus is to understand how end-users perceive the problem and to understand the context on which they encounter the issue. We use workshops, interviews and observation.

Define. We work with end-users to agree the definition of the problem and the goals of the organisation.

Ideate. We foster innovative and creative thinking through group activities in order to generate ideas that can be tested.

Prototype. beginning with a low-fidelity representation of each accepted idea to understand how effectively it addresses the problem. The test activity is iterative, repeating until consensus is achieved.

Test: Once the prototype has been sufficiently refined, we test it with real-world users to gain insight into its effectiveness.

We support remote appraoches to conducting design thinking, as well as fact-toface adtivities.

Training service provided
How the training service works
We provide training and knowledge transfer around any solution we have delivered as part of the engagement. This may include administration training. End-user training may be provided where relevant. However, for integration and interoperability, end users generally require training in use of the integrated systems which is not in the scope of our offer.

Where training is required, we provide suitable training materials in line with an agreed set of requirements with the customer. These may include manuals, exercises, etc.
Training is tied to specific services

Setup and migration

Setup or migration service available
How the setup or migration service works
We facilitate design-led thinking workshops and activities to help our customers find innovative ways to achieve interoperability between systems and processes in healthcare. Cloud-based systems serve as the locus of modern innovative solutions and play a vital role in enabling new forms of interaction between clinicians and patients.

The rapid adoption of remote consultation and monitoring software, together with the emphasis of the use of remote collaboration tools across the NHS provides a strong incentive to adopt cloud-based solutions. Remote working is, itself, enabled by cloud services. We bring a technical perspective to the table when co-designing real-world solutions, demystifying the cloud and helping carers and clinicians to exploit modern technologies to their best advantage.

Quality assurance and performance testing

Quality assurance and performance testing service
How the quality assurance and performance testing works
Solidsoft Reply employs a dedicated quality management team led by a experienced quality manager. Our Quality Management System for development complies with the GAMP 5 specification used extensively across healthcare, and allows us to deliver fully validated systems in accordance with that specification. We are regularly audited for compliance by national medicine verification bodies across Europe.

In compliance with GAMP 5, we provide a full documentation set to support system validation by our customers against a set of formal requirements. This includes the IQ (Installation Qualification) document to verify the installation of software in a cloud environment, the OQ (Operational Qualification) document to verify that the software will function according to its operational specification within the cloud, and the PQ (Performance Qualification) to verify that the software consistently performs to the specification for its routine use.

Performance testing is integral to our quality approach and is performed repeatedly throughout the development cycle to ensure compliance to requirements. Evidence of performance testing can be provided as part of the validation document set.

Solidsoft Reply maintains ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 27001:2013 certifications. We are audited against these on an annual basis using accredited external auditors.
