News story: Civil news: further chance to bid for 2018 contract work

first_img did not submit a tender, or failed to submit compliant tenders for specific categories of law or procurement areas Which categories of law will be open to bids?Tenders will be invited in the following categories of law: Minimum contract requirementsAny organisations able to meet the minimum contract requirements will be able to tender to deliver advertised contract work under a 2018 Standard Civil Contract.This includes organisations that have already tendered for a 2018 Standard Civil contract and wish to deliver additional services. Also, organisations which have not previously tendered.What are the timescales?We expect these tenders for further face to face contract work to open by the end of June.What about immigration removal centres?Work at Immigration Removal Centres (IRCs) is allocated on a rota basis and we have already received bids significantly in excess of the number of slots available.So, the LAA will not be tendering for access to these services as part of the further procurement process.Why do this now?Our existing tender processes mean that we have already secured services in most procurement areas.These include our main face to face procurement process and the supplemental tender activity that followed in specific categories of law and procurement areas.However, we have also identified a number of organisations which wish to deliver civil legal aid but failed to submit compliant tenders in the category of law or procurement area in which they wish to deliver work.The purpose of the procurement process was to allow organisations which want to deliver publicly funded civil work and meet the LAA’s minimum requirements to do so.As a result, we are giving organisations this further opportunity to tender.What about the existing procurement process?We are well-advanced with verification activities to complete the 2018 face to face procurement process.Following our recent reminders to applicants we have also seen an increase in organisations verifying their bids.April 2018 supplemental tenderIn addition to the main face to face procurement process, the supplemental tender opportunity opened in April 2018 to attract additional services in a small number of areas.The categories of law included immigration and asylum, family and housing and debt.Organisations which tendered for a standard civil contract in the supplemental procurement process can expect to receive notification of the outcome of their tender in the week beginning 18 June 2018.Further informationCivil 2018 contracts tender family housing, debt and welfare benefits immigration and asylum mental health community care claims against public authorities (formerly known as ‘actions against the police etc’) clinical negligence public Law family mediation A new process is to open giving organisations meeting our minimum requirements a further opportunity to tender for 2018 civil contract face to face work.What is happening?We want to give organisations another chance to bid for work under the 2018 civil contract.

Making Waves: Health IT Dives Into Data Lakes

first_imgThe healthcare industry is changing – fast.  The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says 30% of Medicare payments need to shift from volume-based to value-based care reimbursement models by 2016, and 50% by 2018.  Healthcare providers still have a lot of work to do to successfully make this transition.The 2015 HIMSS Leadership Survey found that while 41% of healthcare leaders think big data analytics is a number one priority for their organization, a surprising 81% still have basic questions around the quantity and type of data they should be collecting and how to actually turn that data into insight.That’s not especially good news considering healthcare data continues to grow at 48% per year through 2020 from clinical applications, Internet-enabled medical devices, wearables, and remote patient monitoring. With questions on how to manage all of the data being generated today, how will healthcare providers collect, secure, and share the next big wave of information to come?What are the next steps? How can healthcare organizations achieve accountable care and effectively support the empowered patient?Making a Splash with Predictive AnalyticsConsider the key role predictive analytics play as hospitals work to reduce their 30-day readmissions rates for acute myocardial infarction (AMI), heart failure (HF), and pneumonia (PN). To meet these requirements, healthcare providers must speed up the continuous feedback process using analytics across the continuum of care, including inputs from patient monitoring located in the home.Healthcare providers that have successfully implemented predictive analytics see measurable results – 54% of health IT leaders who spent 1-5% of their operating budget on analytics reported success within financial and clinical management.Advanced predictive analytics also provide organizations with clear cost reductions – Goldman Sachs predicts the total savings opportunity from digital health initiatives will be $305B. But how do healthcare organizations eliminate redundant infrastructure and copies of data, while improving data governance and compliance?Eye on the Data Lake Horizon A data lake provides massive scalability and multi-protocol data-in-place analytics, along with the enterprise data protection and security required by healthcare organizations. It provides a powerful data architecture with a unified location to help reduce silos across the healthcare enterprise. Data can also be connected from trusted outside sources including payers, genomic research centers, public health databases, biobanks, and social media feeds.Clinical departments, business analysts, and data science teams can conduct effective cross-data analysis as all internal data sources and trusted external sources are incorporated. Healthcare providers can further advance accountable care initiatives, creating a new realm of data science for uncovering trends, patterns, relationships, correlations, and discoveries that can impact integrated patient care.View our new infographic for more information and to see suggested first steps to help you navigate a data lake>>And, for a best practices example, see how Partners Healthcare, a Boston-based non-profit hospital and physicians network is leveraging a data lake to bring together databases from across disparate systems – speeding the time from research to discovery to clinic to improved patient care.
