Nine NHS trusts in Wales have awarded iSoft contracts totaling £1 million ($1.42 million, U.S.) for a technology update of laboratory information systems.
iSoft said that the deal includes its i.Laboratory TP application, providing an InterSystems Caché environment and ensures that all NHS trusts in Wales are running the same version of i.Laboratory TP as two other trusts upgraded earlier this year.
iSoft will migrate the nine trusts to IBM servers and provide ongoing support, according to the U.K.-based healthcare software supplier.
The overall deal was negotiated by Informing Healthcare, which is a Welsh Assembly government healthcare and health IT program.
The nine NHS trusts are: Bro Morgannwg; Conwy and Denbighshire; Cardiff and Vale; Carmarthenshire; Ceredigion; North Glamorgan; North West Wales; Pembrokeshire and Derwen; and Pontypridd & Rhondda.
