Planning

Planning service
Yes
How the planning service works
Solidsoft Reply provides Healthcare Co-Design Services. We implement a design-led thinking approach to observe and understand users (e.g., clinicians, patients), challenge assumptions, refine problems and define needs for interoperable systems. We help people generate new ideas to achieve and exploit interoperability. We prototype and test ideas before generating implementation plans. Design thinking helps our customers to solve complex or ill-defined problems, find innovative solutions and promote change and evolution.
Our design-led approach uses a variety of techniques, including discovery workshops, observation, surveys, group exercises, design probes, etc., to help our customer achieve a better understanding of their needs and possible solutions. As technologists, our aim is to support business users through a cycle of design and implementation, with input from clinicians and patients at every stage of the cycle. We help our customers choose appropriate technological approaches and implement solutions that make a difference.
Co-design leads to co-production. To support the implementation of robust interoperability, we deliver documented recommendations, plans, designs and estimates to support decision-making and to illustrate the value and benefits of proposed solutions.

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.

How the setup or migration service works
QuickConnect for Healthcare accelerates the migration of existing data and services, including industry-specific systems, to the cloud. It supports interoperability between services, systems and applications, including both cloud-based and on-premises systems. It provides a toolkit of patterns and components to accelerate and reduce the cost of integration of healthcare systems based on recognised interoperability standards.
QuickConnect for Healthcare exploits cloud-based Integration Platform-as-a-Service (IPaaS) features provided by a public cloud platform (Microsoft Azure) including connectors, hybrid connectivity, automated processes and workflows, event processing and API Management provided by that platform. It promotes the use of HL7 FHIR APIs and resources with specific support for the UK FHIR profile developed by NHS Digital.
QuickConnect for Healthcare supports the integration of data and services within collaborative tools including Microsoft Teams. It facilitates integration with medical devices via the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT), enabling patient rehabilitation, assisted living, remote assessment, remote triage and continuity of care. It promotes compliance, quality of life and mental wellbeing. It promotes the use of modern APIs alongside ‘legacy’ systems using cloud-based services to provide scale, resilience and cost effectiveness.

Quality assurance and performance testing

Quality assurance and performance testing service
Yes
How the quality assurance and performance testing works
Solidsoft Reply employs a dedicated quality management team led by an 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. The documents support Installation Qualification to verify the installation of software in a cloud environment, Operational Qualification to verify that the software will function according to its operational specification within the cloud, and 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 a regular basis using accredited external auditors.
