System C appoints Healthcare Managing Director
22nd June 2022
Guy Lucchi is set to join System C as Managing Director of Healthcare. The new role will lead System C’s Healthcare division, and in particular will help the company’s healthcare customers achieve the higher levels of digitisation, HIMSS 5 and beyond, along with the new Minimum Digital Foundations (MDF) requirements.
Guy is passionate about the power of digital enabled change to improve patient outcomes and workforce experience. He has an impressive background as a digital leader, with a proven track record for shaping and delivering some of the largest and most complex digital enabled transformation programmes in healthcare.
Guy was previously joint Digital Innovation Director for Health Innovation Manchester and Chief Digital Officer for the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership. He was responsible for the co-creation of the health and care digital strategy and associated digital transformation plan across the £6bn devolved health and care system, targeted at improving the health outcomes of Greater Manchester’s 2.8 million citizens and accelerating innovation at pace and scale.
Prior to that, he spent much of his career as a Chief Technology Officer (CTO) with global IT giant DXC Technology (merger of CSC and HP Enterprise Services), leading on digital healthcare and life sciences initiatives across the Group. Notably, Guy was the CTO for DXC’s product portfolio that has led to significant digitisation of administration and electronic patient record systems across much of the NHS. He was also instrumental in developing DXC’s global healthcare cloud strategy.
Commenting on his new MD of healthcare role at System C, Guy Lucchi said: I’m delighted to be joining System C, and my first programme of work will be leading the development of an innovative design and deployment blueprint for our integrated EPR that will enable Trusts to identify gaps and create a comprehensive, actionable digital transformation roadmap. I’m looking forward to meeting with our customers and sharing more detail.
Nick Wilson, CEO of System C, said: I’m pleased to be welcoming Guy to the team at a very exciting time. The work we have done over previous years means we now have everything required to support NHS Trusts and other Hospital customers to achieve the upper echelons of digitisation. The scope of CareFlow EPR has been expanded to include clinical narrative, flow, and task orchestration alongside the ongoing investments in our CareFlow Connect, Vitals and the core PAS solutions. The addition of CareFlow Medicines Management to System C has further added solutions including closed loop prescribing and blood products.
Alongside System C’s Liquidlogic integrated social care solution, our Care Alliance partnerships, including the CareCentric shared care record, Population Health and Docobo’s remote patient management are the other pieces of the jigsaw required by our Trusts to achieve HIMSS 7 accreditation and the MDF requirements.
