Australia's biggest listed health information technology company, iSoft Group, cemented deals worth more than NZ$6 million in New Zealand in June.
It told the Australian Securities Exchange yesterday that it had signed a five-year support and maintenance agreement for its patient administration system with the district health boards of Northland, Canterbury, MidCentral and Wairarapa, totalling A$5.2m.
It will also provide enhancements to other New Zealand district health boards worth $500,000 and it has agreed on a regional pharmacy system with three health boards in Auckland and a medicines reconciliation system with the Taranaki District Health Board, both worth $735,000 over the next five years. For these, iSoft will install clinical software which meets new Safe Medication Management group standards and provides a foundation for full medication management.
Formerly the IBA Health Group, iSoft Group provides health software and solutions to 13,000 provider organisations in 38 countries, ranging from patient information management to improving health organisations' core processes.
