Accenture has won a two-year contract to help a Spain-based government agency continue integrating information technology systems for a healthcare system serving more than 6.5 million citizens.
This award continues Accenture’s decade-long relationship with the Madrid Health Authority to implement healthcare IT in Madrid, including a healthcare information exchange intended to host 15 million records, Accenture said Wednesday.
Baltasar Lobato, head of Accenture's healthcare business in Spain, said the company is aiming to help the agency offer citizen-oriented services and increase regional competitiveness.
Under the new contract, Accenture will work with the agency to continue integrating IT systems across 36 hospitals, 29 specialized treatment centers and more than 400 primary care facilities.
The company will hold an project management and advisory role to support technical and functional decisions, Accenture said.
