About

inidus was founded in 2017 with the intent to disrupt the Digital Health and Care Market through delivery of services that:

  • Place the patient in control of the health data; and
  • Enable data to be accessible throughout the patient journey.

Our Proposition is underpinned by our open PaaS. This is operational with a number of customers that include NHS Digital as their Code4Health platform. Our open PaaS offers a Clinical Data Repository that is fully compliant with the open clinical standard, openEHR. This is the only open standard that has sufficient maturity and proven capability at scale to underpin the wide-scale sharing of data.

Our founders are active and highly respected in the global open platform movement, with close links and networks at all levels of health and care in the UK. We have authored the key strategy documents commissioned by NHS Digital that are relevant to this proposition. These include “Defining an Open Platform” and “A Blueprint for a Co-Produced Personal Health Record (CoPHR)”.

Technology

The open standards used to build an open platform are technology agnostic and can be implemented using a range of technology options. This means that builders of an open platform can choose the particular technology that works best for them and new technologies can be implemented without disturbing applications already using the platform.
