HSCN

Providing connectivity to the health and social care network.

HSCN connectivity

The Health and Social Care Network (HSCN), replacement to the N3 network, provides a secure platform to access and exchange information reducing costs and complexity across the board.

Redcentric is a HSCN consumer network service provider (CN-SP), permitting us to connect both your IT infrastructure and your people securely onto the HSCN network.

Reduce the cost, time and knowledge burden required within your own organisation and be led through the entire HSCN on-boarding process by experts in the field, our dedicated HSCN Governance team. The team will manage the entire project, providing support and guidance throughout to ensure you meet your connectivity and security obligations. Risk and complexity will be removed with solution design in place and business gaps mitigated ensuring your organisations compliance, allowing you to focus on your own priorities.

Given this was something new and very high profile we were a little anxious but from the outset the engagement has only been positive. Network migration is one of Redcentric’s core competencies, it’s what they do; add in its longstanding relationship with NHS Digital, the deep engagement with the whole HSCN programme and extensive sector knowledge, and we felt much more confident about the transition. The quality of service delivery showed that confidence was not misplaced.

HSCN secure remote access

Provide all users, whether NHS clinical staff or commercial third party employees, greater freedom to securely connect to HSCN network services, regardless of location via our HSCN secure remote access service (SRAS). Using advanced authentication and tunnel encryption, users can safely and quickly access key NHS systems and data including medical records, Electronic Prescriptions Service, digital imaging services and other clinical information from anywhere, offering better support for mobile working while delivering cost-efficiencies.

Our HSCN SRAS uses a range of secure access solutions, incorporating two-factor authentication tokens based on hardware, software or a smart device.

HSCN cloud connectivity

Enjoy the agility, elasticity and economies of scale of public or private cloud as you seek to drive transformation, through a secure and accredited way to access the hyperscale cloud resources of Microsoft Azure or Amazon Web Services, or Redcentric’s VMWare based private cloud services.

Redcentric gives customers the ability to connect to public cloud environments, such as Microsoft Azure privately via Microsoft ExpressRoute or Amazon Web Services privately via Direct Connect. We also offer a fully managed service wrap for your Microsoft Azure deployments, from initial design through to 24/7 support. Allowing your in-house teams to focus on ‘front end’ work that supports improvements in care quality, patient experience and clinical application development.
