iSOFT, an IBA Health Group Company, today announced that it has won a contract for a hospital information system with a National Health Service (NHS) trust in southern England worth US$3.54m over five years.
The contract with Heatherwood and Wexham Park Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is for iSOFT’s i.Patient Manager (i.PM) PAS and a technical refresh of an existing iSOFT clinical solution, i.Clinical Manager (i.CM). i.PM is replacing an outdated third-party system. The trust elected to contract directly with iSOFT for a replacement PAS instead of waiting for a solution under England’s National Programme for IT. This is one of the first major deals in the Southern Cluster, which was formerly serviced by Fujitsu.
Jonathan Pearce, the Trust’s Director of Infrastructure, said: “We are delighted to be working with iSOFT on this very important programme for Heatherwood and Wexham Park Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. We already have a strong working relationship with iSOFT as we already use its clinical information system, i.CM. We very much value our partnership with iSOFT and look forward to strengthening this and working with the company to deliver the new PAS solution to the trust.”
