What we do 

acceSSOnce Clinical Desktop Solution

OCSL have pioneered the development of acceSSOnce, a Clinical Desktop Transformation Solution.

acceSSOnce improves the way Clinical and Business users interact with IT within NHS organisations delivering tangible benefits to all. 

"A solution fit for the 21st Century healthcare" Luton and Dunstable University Hospital.


acceSSOnce delivers tangible benefits to all clinical users

It enables a clinician to log in to any application, on any device, in any location seamlessly, without the need for multiple passwords. This means clinicians can roam between a PC in a consulting room, a shared machine on a ward, or even a mobile device from home and their applications will remain open so they can continue working.

Patient Context

acceSSOnce adds Patient Context.

As new applications are opened, the clinician will automatically be placed into the same patient’s record, without having to search for them.
This dramatically reduces wasted time and clinical risk associated with misaligning patient information.

Business Users and IT

The solution extends beyond the clinical teams to the business users within the Trust, providing them with the same ‘any application, any device’ experience. This facilitates a more flexible working pattern for users and allows IT staff to proactively support a wider range of devices such as iPads and tablet PCs.

Information Governance, security and reliability are paramount; acceSSOnce enables organisations to set policies based on people, devices and locations providing a full audit trail to underpin an organisation’s security model.
