Computer Sciences Corp has won the latest billion-dollar contract to be awarded as part of the UK National Health Service IT modernization program.

By CBR Staff Writer

Under the terms of the 973m pound ($1.67bn) contract, El Segundo, California-based CSC will lead a consortium to design, deliver and operate an integrated patient care record system for patients in the North West and West Midlands of England.

CSC’s team includes change management consulting firm Hedra Ltd, healthcare applications provider iSoft Plc and desktop services specialist Specialist Computer Company. As prime contractor, CSC beat rival bids from BT Group Plc, Fujitsu Services and IBM Global Services.

Earlier this month, the NHS awarded over 2.5bn pounds ($4.3bn) worth of IT services contracts to BT Group Plc and Accenture Ltd. BT is designing, delivering and managing a national patient-record database and transactional messaging service, and Accenture is providing systems to access and use the services and IT support at a local level in the North East region of the UK.
