What is HSCN?

The Health and Social Care Network (HSCN) has replaced N3 as the data network for health and care organisations. HSCN providers deliver 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 VPN access 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 connection can be procured through two CCS frameworks - RM6116 or RM3825. In addition, HSCN overlay services can be procured through G-Cloud. Exponential-e is an accredited HSCN provider on these frameworks. Our expert team are always on hand to guide you through whichever process best suits your requirements.

Benefits of HSCN connection

For all approved HSCN providers, stringent quality, operational and security standards defined by NHS Digital must be met. As a Stage 3 compliant HSCN provider, we are accredited to deliver HSCN connection 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.

Why Exponential-e?

From world-first innovations such as Intelligent Internet Algorithm and Virtual Private LAN (VPLS), to a web-based bandwidth management portal, launching our own Private Cloud and Data Centre, launching HSCN Working From Home Solution and SD-WAN, through to building our very own Cyber Security Operations Centre, technology and innovation has always driven our growth. Plus, over the years we have invested heavily in expanding our carrier-class high capacity core Network and building resilient Cloud and Voice infrastructure.

Alongside this innovation though, our customers will tell you that they also value our integrity and ethos as their trusted partner, working with them to design and deliver their solution on time and on budget.
