Portico Consulting has undertaken a wide range of specialist technical and technology studies. We draw on extensive experience of the underpinning information technologies, and on experience of the design, planning and implementation of large-scale IT systems. We have specific expertise in systems and integration architectures (including, for example, integration engines and HL7) intranet & internet, security, networking & communications; and in the development testing and deployment of IT solutions. We can help with:

  • Data Quality and data migration
  • Technical strategies, reviews and specialist studies
  • Options appraisals and evaluations
  • System and service specification and implementation
  • Software development and technical support
  • Data management and reporting services

The links to the left give more details of some of the main service areas.

An area of work relating to a specific IT system is adding value to the use of the RiO community and mental health system in the NHS.  We have extensive experience of data migration, implementation and operation of the RiO system and we have developed a number of technical services which enable organisations to get greater value from their investment in RiO.

Our software development work is primarily bespoke system development or systems integration.  The only area where we offer a software product is the Quartz system for awarding organisations.  We provide full support services for all of our development work.
