Over 100 NHS Trusts and private organisations use EMIS Health’s Translation Service to convert messages into a standardised format and send them to SUS+ (Secondary Uses Service).

As a company, we played a key role in the conception and delivery of messaging services and were the first company to be accredited with CDS v6.2 submission to SUS+. Today we are the UK's largest and most experienced NHS-certified commissioning data sets (CDS) messaging solution provider and are constantly adapting our translation services to incorporate a range of further data sets including Emergency Care Data Sets (ECDS) and Maternity Services Data Sets (MSDS).

We can manage the translation and submission of your data set messages on your behalf, saving your staff valuable time and greatly reducing the likelihood of errors and late submissions. Our translation service is fully integrated with our Symphony package to create an end to end service, further reducing cost and saving time.

Thanks to our vast experience with messaging solutions, you can be assured that your messages are in the safest hands.
