It is designed to underpin InterSystem’s TrakCare, a unified patient administration application that facilitates coordinated care across hospitals throughout a region.

Proact will provide 24-hour remote monitoring and service management for the storage, networks, hypervisor, physical servers and virtual machine operating systems.

Support will be delivered from Proact’s Central Scotland network operations centre, with a single point of contact for support, incident handling, reporting, upgrades and updates.

Barry McCalister, head of applications at NHS Lanarkshire, said: “NHS Lanarkshire is looking forward to working with Proact on the service management and support of the infrastructure for TrakCare, our critical patient administration solution.”
