We are already an established partner of the HFMA (Healthcare Financial Management Association) and fully appreciate the value of working collaboratively with those organisations that are helping bring together the different parts of the health sector to look at ways of improving care."

“At Advanced, we believe that digital transformation within the NHS is essential to address the many challenges it faces. We are passionate about helping support and drive innovation with our many customers and partners in NHS, and look forward to working alongside the NHS Confederation to help drive this forward at even greater pace.”

Andrew Fisher, Director of Communications and Commercial Services at the NHS Confederation added: “We are pleased to welcome Advanced as a new associate member. There is no doubt that there are significant challenges facing the NHS and whilst funding is a key issue, greater use of innovative technology has a very significant role to play in offering solutions.”
