The High Resolution Story

A group of senior health informatics experts came together as High Resolution Consulting.

The High Resolution Story

High Resolution is now a HCI Group company. Read more here.

In 2009, following major restructuring by government of the way in which NHS IT systems were procured, a group of senior health informatics experts identified a need for Trusts to be given access to value-for-money, highly-skilled and dependable advice on an ‘as and when’ basis.

That group, whose expertise gained from within the NHS and in leading blue-chip companies spanned IM&T planning and management to the procurement of major systems, came together under the banner of High Resolution Consulting.

Since then, we have assisted more than 60 NHS trusts in identifying IM&T strategies aligned to their particular corporate business objectives and set within the broader national context. Typically those strategies use IM&T as an enabler of business transformation to deliver high quality patient care, assist clinical decision-making and drive down costs. Inter alia, they provide the added benefits of sharing information with patients themselves, between clinicians and other care providers, and, suitably anonymized, for use in medical research.

Following the demise of the National Programme for IT (NPfIT), many Trusts were facing the challenges of upgrading or replacing aging legacy systems and High Resolution Consulting’s procurement specialists supported them through the whole process, culminating in implementation planning of the successful solution.

The close relationships and confidence built during the procurement phase often prompts our customers to request our continued support through their implementation to go-live and, as a result, we sought to bring together a group of implementation specialists to match the skills and experience of our consulting team. Early in 2013, High Resolution Resourcing, led by an internationally renowned programme manager, came together to embark upon its first major implementation. It is now a highly successful supplier of health informatics staff, drawing on a pool of proven skills and experience to support Trusts’ needs on an ad hoc basis, or as part of a fully managed implementation service.
