Horizon Strategic Partners

Horizon Strategic Partners (HSP) was established in 2008 to provide IT Consultancy Services to the Department of Health. Since then it has developed a range of mobile healthcare solutions that are used in over 50% of all UK Acute Hospital Trusts.

HSP has worked with the BSAC over a number of years on various IT projects, such as the development of the OPAT National Outcomes Registry which provides the most comprehensive overview of OPAT service provision in the UK. Recently HSP has worked with PHE to develop a Point Prevalence Survey (PPS) System that was used on a national basis to collect data for the 2016 ECDC survey of healthcare-associated infections and antimicrobial use in acute care hospitals.

In 2017 HSP took over the IPR and development of the OPAT Patient Management System (PMS), with an upgraded system being launched in 2018.
