iSoft awarded Maltese contract
Healthcare information systems developer iSoft has been appointed as sub-contractor to Dallas-based Affiliated Computer Services (ACS) Healthcare Solutions to provide and support a laboratory information system (LIS) at Malta's new 850-bed Mater Dei Hospital.

Malta Information Technology and Training Services have also extended its 12-year relationship with iSoft for an upgrade of the current patient administration system, according to the London-based firm.

The seven-year contract with ACS includes iSoft's i.Laboratory system, which will be installed as part of a program to improve the management of health records and integrate digital medical equipment.

In addition, ACS will be providing hardware, software and expertise needed to maintain a LIS, RIS, and PACS. The company will integrate these systems with the Mater Dei's existing systems, iSoft said.
