Dr Foster and the eMBED Health Consortium

Dr Foster is a member of the eMBED Health Consortium, a newly formed partnership with three other leading global businesses – Kier, BDO and Engine. The consortium has been appointed to the NHS Lead Provider Framework to provide end-to-end services to commissioning and other organisations in England.

The framework enables commissioners and other health and social care organisations to commission services more rapidly and cost-effectively from suppliers beyond the existing commissioning support unit (CSU) sector, though most CSUs are also part of the framework.

The eMBED Health Consortium is collectively offering innovative approaches for commissioners and others to transform all areas of service provision with the ultimate goal of achieving better patient outcomes through greater efficiencies while focusing on quality in their local health economy. This includes services from transactional back office support to healthcare transformation, patient-centered care and business intelligence.

The members of the consortium have supported the NHS for several decades, with many of our people possessing significant NHS experience and insights.
