ABS COMPUTERS PURSUES THE NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE MARKET IN THE UK

By CBR Staff Writer

Following its recent installation of a C Horse 830 Zilog Systems based Unix micro in the UK’s largest National Health Service Authority in Leicestershire, where it will link the 34 hospitals throughout the county, Trafalgar House Plc subsidiary ABS Computers of Brighton, England is set to launch new products and strategy based on the WIMS2 Plus Work Information Management System specification on March 3. Originally based on an ABS product, WIMS was adapted by the Department of Health and Social Security and offered as a general specification five years ago for hospital administration. Since then, ABS claims to have cornered between 50% and 75% of the market, and more recently has installed several Unix-based systems. The 50-port installation in Leicestershire was valued at UKP55,000.
