Computer Sciences Corp. has signed a four-year agreement with the U.K. National Health Service to continue delivering regional care software for the NHS’ electronic health records system, the company announced Monday.
The company said this agreement, which lasts through July 2016, includes full mutual releases of all claims between the company and NHS through the date of the agreement.
President and CEO Mike Lawrie said in a release the company will continue providing its Lorenzo software line for NHS’ information and communications technology infrastructure and is seeing demand from NHS trusts for the software.
In March, the company signed a non-binding letter with the U.K. Health Department to form how the company will support NHS on a regional basis.
CSC will deliver more Lorenzo implementations to NHS trusts based on demand and the trusts will combine their clinical modules with Lorenzo’s core care management feature, the company said.
NHS and the company also agreed to a new funding structure for trusts that want to implement Lorenzo within the North, Midlands and East regions of England by obtaining central funding from the U.K. Health Department.
The company agreed to non-exclusive deployment rights in its designated regions, where trusts may select CSC’s offerings through a competitive process.
From the date of a trust’s Lorenzo deployment, that trust will receive managed services from CSC for five years if that deployment is complete or close to complete by July 2016.
