The Eva team is comprised of three organisations at the forefront of change and innovation in their respective industries: expert healthcare investigation consultants Verita, global technology specialists AlfaPeople, and Microsoft.
Verita is the UK’s leading provider of serious incident investigation consultancy. With over 17 years’ experience and a team of expert advisors, our work includes the 2012 NHS-based investigations into Jimmy Savile. We were also invited by Spire Healthcare to review their governance arrangements following the scandal surrounding the surgical practice of Mr Ian Paterson. Our experience from these and countless other healthcare investigations have informed the development of the Eva Investigation Application.

AlfaPeople is a global software consultancy firm specialising in Microsoft business technology. We are a Gold Partner and privileged member of Microsoft’s inner circle, with a background in the deployment of cutting-edge technology in healthcare. Our team has over 15 years’ experience implementing solutions for some of the biggest healthcare providers in the UK, from Patient Relationship Management systems in large NHS Trusts, to the development of a Virtual Fracture Clinic.

Microsoft is the world’s leading technology company with investment of over £1bn a year in research and development in areas like Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning. Microsoft’s recent innovations in the healthcare sector include tools to predict the onset of cardiac or respiratory arrest, allowing clinicians to intervene sooner; and supporting the use of holograms during surgery at Alder Hey Children’s hospital. Eva is powered by Microsoft Dynamics 365.

The digitisation of the healthcare sector will intensify exponentially in the coming decades – and partnerships with industry and tech leaders is a fundamental part of this change. With Eva, comes:
Ed is one of the founders of Eva Applications, and is also managing director of Verita, a specialist investigations consultancy. He is a healthcare professional by background, and spent the first half of his career working on the frontline in the NHS. Ed has carried out numerous complex investigations in healthcare over the last twenty years, heading up many serious incidents involving patient harm. He oversaw the 40 or so investigations that the NHS had to undertake on behalf of the Secretary of State for Health into allegations by victims of Jimmy Savile. Ed believes that the intelligent use of data and technology can play a significant role in reducing avoidable harm in both the private and public healthcare sectors.
Chris is also a Director at Verita and is one of their most experienced investigators, having conducted some of its most high-profile investigations and reviews. As head of training, Chris has developed training courses for the systematic investigation of serious incidents and complex complaints. She has delivered these courses across a range of organisations and sectors, receiving consistently excellent feedback. Chris’ knowledge and experience were an integral part of Eva’s design.
Martyna is also a Senior Dynamics 365 Consultant at AlfaPeople and is an expert in guiding customers towards success in highly complex, customised IT projects. Martyna’s focus is to empower employees, increase the standard of delivery, improve efficiency, support an increasingly mobile workforce and ensure organisations are complying with with modern standards and regulations. Martyna is AlfaPeole’s Healthcare expert, having led the functional delivery stream for a BMI Healthcare project and developed Virtual Fracture Clinic, a tool for clinicians to deliver better care whilst saving time and money.
Peter is also Company Director for Verita. Since joining them in 2012, Peter has had a particular focus on the development and evolution of our diagnostic tools – including the Eva investigation application, Organisational Resilience Assessment and Complaints diagnostic – as well as undertaking numerous investigations in both public and private healthcare. In his role as a Verita board director, he oversees relationships with a number of key clients and manages the financial control of the organisation.
I have worked in the technology sector for the past three years. Starting my career at AlfaPeople, I have helped to deliver complex Microsoft projects for a wide variety of organisations working across multiple industry sectors. My work for Eva has primarily involved engagement with healthcare organisations. By learning about the key issues and challenges that they face in the field of serious incident investigations, I am them able to explain how our technology can help them to improve patient safety.
