PCG Assista (a partnership between PCG UK and Assista Consulting) recently exhibited at the HFMA annual conference. This is a long-standing event and Assista have exhibited there since 2009. Many senior NHS finance decision makers attend the conference and it gave us the chance to strengthen our existing ties to them.
More than 100 delegates visited our stand and took part in our tombola (where everyone wins a prize). Whilst they were with us we were able to learn a little more about the challenges the delegates currently face and how we could help them with our products and services. We recognise that every NHS organisation is faced with a unique mixture of challenges and our approach is to consult with clients in order to construct a bespoke solution for them.
On the day, there was significant interest in our personal health budget solution, as well as patient income and costing. In all, it was another useful and engaging day with NHS colleagues, looking for healthcare finance solutions.
