CGI invests in OLM's ECLIPSE software platform for Glasgow City Council to modernise and streamline health and social care services

IT and business consulting firm responsible for providing IT services to Glasgow City Council, has invested in OLM's award-winning ECLIPSE platform for Glasgow City’s Health and Social Care Partnership.

ECLIPSE is an integrated and accessible system with intuitive and easy-to-use software which operates on one database to enable the best targeting of health and social care services to residents in Scotland’s largest city. 

It does this by providing a single view of client/family information, which gives workers the opportunity to view a genuinely integrated client record that covers case management, citizen engagement, financial information, and activity and reporting requirements, including the operation of self-directed support. Such an overview driven by powerful next generation software provides a holistic view of social care services in the city that future-proof the very highest standards of care.

ECLIPSE is the only cloud-native solution available in the sector and the only software that meets the Scottish Government's Cloud First agenda and the Scottish Digital Health and Care Strategy on Cloud.  

During its implementation, the joint teams at Glasgow City Council, CGI and OLM will work together to digitally transform, refine and streamline current council processes, using OLM's best-practice forms and procedures as its base, before amending it to support local practices.

Sharon Wearing, Chief Officer, Finance and Resources, Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership, said: "We look forward to working with CGI and OLM to implement ECLIPSE. A single cloud platform covering case management, citizen engagement, finance and commissioning will be more convenient and efficient. ECLIPSE will help deliver better services by improving our strategic response to service users. The platform supports our needs now and is adaptable for future requirements.”

Richard Johnson, Scotland Director OLM said: "Glasgow City Council and CGI are strategic and key partners for OLM and we are delighted to continue our journey with them supporting their digital transformation across the city. The ECLIPSE platform increases efficiency and gives health and social care professionals the time and information they need to achieve more positive outcomes for service users. Uniquely, ECLIPSE is adaptable for the future and is the only solution that meets the Scottish Government's Cloud First agenda and the Scottish Digital Health and Care Strategy on Cloud.  We will be there as a partner at every step to support Glasgow City Council and CGI in its essential work to continually improve the lives of children, young people and adults in the city.”

Lindsay McGranaghan, Vice-President and Scotland Business Unit Lead for CGI, said; “We are delighted to be partnering with OLM in the rollout of its ECLIPSE platform throughout Glasgow. ECLIPSE is a further example of the exciting transformation in digital and IT that CGI has been delivering in Scotland’s largest city since 2017, including the provision of an integrated citizen digital experience across a range of council services which encompasses health and social care. With our new Scottish headquarters also established in Glasgow, we look forward to continuing to help to progress Glasgow’s smart city ambitions.”
