2nd July 2015, London. Advanced Health & Care (Advanced), a leading supplier of IT solutions for the health and care sectors, today announces that it has signed a strategic partnership agreement with Cloudhouse, a leading vendor of Cloud Application Virtualization technologies
The partnership provides organisations with the ability to rapidly deploy Advanced’s solutions in the cloud, enabling cost-efficiencies and economies of scale without the risk of migrating data between multiple platforms.
Running software within a virtualised setting reduces reliance on remote desktops, increases flexibility of deployment and gives users the ability to access the software anytime and from anywhere.
Compatibility issues are also removed, ensuring uninterrupted performance regardless of any conflicts across the environment in which the solution runs and the ability to ‘click and run’ applications irrespective of desktop configuration.
Jim Chase, Managing Director, Advanced Health & Care, says, “This partnership will provide our customers with increased agility, flexibility and accessibility of our solutions, without them needing to allocate time and cost into redeveloping their existing IT infrastructure.
“Organisations will benefit from up-to-date and reliable software available within any environment. This is hugely important in the health and care setting where patient records increasingly need to be stored and accessed electronically in real-time.”
Nick Harmer, CEO, Cloudhouse, says, “We are excited to be joining forces with Advanced, one of the fastest growing suppliers of leading healthcare IT solutions. Our innovative technology is a perfect complement to their trusted solutions, and will further enhance the software and service they offer by enabling customers to leverage the efficiencies and benefits of virtualised hosting.”
Advanced Health & Care’s solutions support 1,800 'out of hospital', community care provider organisations in the NHS, local government, third-sector and private sector across Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the Middle East.

Despite emergency security patches issued by Microsoft for a number of its legacy operating systems, WannaCry highlighted a major risk faced by companies running business critical applications on unsupported systems. It also showed that, without on-going support, it will become too costly, in both monetary and reputational terms, for organisations to continue running their legacy applications.
