Basingstoke, 10 October 2016 – Tech Data is putting the focus on healthcare this quarter by publishing a guide to the channel and running a series of promotions aimed at stimulating activity amongst resellers in the sector. The Focus on Healthcare Guide is backed by leading vendors and will include details on how resellers can position themselves effectively to win business.
Investment in IT across the heath service is rising as the NHS looks to make the anticipated £22 billion of efficiency savings that will be needed by the end of the decade. A recent survey of local digital roadmaps (LDRs), which are being drawn up across the UK to identify where IT investment needs to be made, showed that ERP systems and the sharing of patient records and information are seen as the priorities. A separate report estimated that around 20 percent of NHS organisations may still be using Windows XP as their main operating system.
Kirsty Guy, Public Sector Marketing Manager at Tech Data said: “The aim of the Focus on Healthcare campaign is to highlight some of the areas of potential. We always see a pick-up in activity in the healthcare sector at this time of year, so now is the right time for resellers to follow-up these opportunities and take some positive messages out to market.”

Tech Data will be supporting resellers targeting healthcare with a series of promotions and offers throughout the final quarter of the year. It will also be updating its Virtual Hospital environments with new products. There are three health-focused resources – the Virtual Waiting Room, Virtual Ward Room, and Virtual Consulting Room. These areas show specific technologies that can be used in these key healthcare settings. They are ideal tools for sales training and there are ‘white-label’ versions that can be used with end-user customers as well.
