iSOFT Business Solutions has been awarded a four-year managed service contract worth $1.15 million

Capita IB Solutions, part of the IBA Health Group (ASX:IBA) and a market leader in providing world class business accounting software, procurement and bespoke solutions to service-centric organisations has been awarded a four-year managed service contract worth $1.15 million (£497,000) to host financial applications for Medway NHS Trust in Kent, England. The contract with IBA Health subsidiary Capita IB Solutions is for its Integra suite of web-enabled financial accounting applications provided as a fully hosted managed service from its data centre at Prestwich in Manchester. Medway has previously used Integra financials with Capita IB Solutions supporting the applications remotely. The trust is switching to a full hosted service and expects significant efficiencies, along with improvements in performance and reliability. Medway is also taking the latest version of Integra financials, which includes a web-enabled front-end, business intelligence, and an enhanced reporting and enquiry engine. Also included is the purchase-to-pay e-procurement module to manage the purchasing cycle on-line and so reduce paperwork, data entry and errors, and delays. The NHS trust is also taking additional Integra modules for document scanning and electronic invoice approval to increase efficiency and cut costs. Medway NHS Trust is one of four hospital trusts in Kent and Medway. Employing over 3,550 staff, its main focus is to run the Medway Maritime Hospital at Gillingham.
