“We are thrilled to be selected as a supplier on the CDIS Framework”, said John Bendall, Operations Director, Crescendo Systems Limited, “By creating a Lot category that showcases the latest developments in clinical IT technology, CDIS provides an ideal procurement platform for our innovative Centro System which features patient-centric, clinical documentation technology and ground-breaking, speaker independent speech recognition that requires no user training”.

"We believe that CDIS is a particularly appropriate framework mechanism for Centro to be placed on", continued John, "as it was always our intention to design a future proof and complementary solution that would be both fully interoperable and enhance the workflow and productivity for hospitals investing in the exciting new generation of contemporary clinical and digital information systems such as best of breed EPR's".

The CDIS framework, which is now live, enables members to call-off from the framework (or re-open competition within it), removing the need for them to conduct full tender exercises or lengthy supplier evaluations each and every time they have a requirement; saving both time and cost associated with laborious procurement exercises.
