We are proud to announce that EQL has been included on the latest Crown Commercial Service (CCS) procurement framework, the G-Cloud 13 framework for UK public sector digital services procurement.
G-Cloud 13 has four lots and EQL’s digital physiotherapy service, Phio, has been included as a supplier in Lot 2: Cloud software (SaaS) — applications which are accessed over a public or private network e.g. the internet, and hosted in the cloud.
Phio will be made available through a front-end catalogue called the Digital Marketplace which makes it easier for those commissioning digital health technologies to find solutions without needing to run a full tender or competition procurement process.
Using approved suppliers from the G-Cloud framework gives buyers the confidence that suppliers such as EQL can deliver a clinically safe and effective product which will best meet their requirements.
We were included on the previous framework and our inclusion again is a reflection of the quality of our MSK physiotherapy services
The G-Cloud 13 agreement includes improved terms and conditions and the latest procurement policies such as prompt payment and social value. It can help speed up the procurement process for buyers, thus reducing their costs.
Jason Ward, CEO and Co-Founder, EQL, said: “We are delighted to have been accepted and listed on the latest G-Cloud framework. We were included on the previous framework and our inclusion again is a reflection of the quality of our MSK physiotherapy services. Being included on the framework makes it easier for providers looking to digitally support their MSK services to introduce Phio and gain the advantages of improved efficiencies and patient experience.”
The award confirms the quality of the Phio product and reinforces the prior accreditation from the Organisation for the Review of Health and Care Applications (ORCHA) which rated Phio Access the leading digital health solution for physiotherapy.
Phio has also achieved approval from the NHSx* Digital Technology Assessment Criteria (DTAC). The voluntary regulation gives healthcare organisations another way to assess suppliers at the point of procurement or as part of a due diligence process. Phio app scored 100% on the usability and accessibility rating.
*NHSx is now integrated into the NHS Transformation Directorate
Circle Health Group is the first healthcare provider to launch Phio Engage, our digital self-management physiotherapy app.
EQL and Collective Benefits partnership offers gig economy workers digital access to physiotherapy care with Phio to help address one of the most common workplace health issues including back pain.
