Health & Social Care Network (HSCN)

A faster, more secure and resilient network
to transform health services

Exponential-e is Stage 2 HSCN compliant – we can deliver HSCN and other integrated IT services to organisations looking to access and share information more reliably, flexibly, and efficiently.

What is HSCN?

The Health and Social Care Network (HSCN) has replaced N3 as the data network for health and care organisations. HSCN provides the underlying network arrangements to help integrate and transform health and social care services by enabling organisations like yours to access and share information more reliably, flexibly and efficiently.

Unlike N3, HSCN brings you an open marketplace to obtain network connectivity from – this means that you are back in control of the services and providers you choose, allowing you to work with a provider that understands the challenges and pressures you face on a daily basis and has a clear vision for delivering future-ready IT.

HSCN services can be procured through two CCS frameworks - RM1045 or RM3825. In addition, HSCN overlay services can be procured through G-Cloud. Exponential-e is accredited suppliers on these frameworks. Our expert team are always on hand to guide you through whichever process best suits your requirements.

Benefits of HSCN

To be an approved supplier of HSCN services, stringent quality, operational and security standards defined by NHS Digital must be met. As a Stage 2 compliant HSCN supplier, we are accredited to deliver HSCN services to public sector organisations. Our HSCN multi-services platform provides the underlying infrastructure arrangements to help integrate and transform health and social care services by enabling organisations to access and share information more reliably, flexibly, and efficiently. This allows the providers of health and social care to consume competitive and assured services that support better patient outcomes.
