iSOFT Spain supplies HIS to Mexico’s regional-level healthcare IT project

ISoft : 25 July, 2008  (Application Story)
iSOFT Spain has been awarded an Euros 698,000 contract by the Nuevo Leon State Healthcare Department in Mexico for an integrated care system at ten hospitals and 470 health centres.
The contract is believed to be Mexico’s first regional-level healthcare IT project and follows the implementation of iSOFT’s hospital information system (HIS) at the Women and Children’s Hospital in Monterrey, the state capital, last year.

iSOFT’s HIS is now being installed at the remaining nine hospitals across the state and its primary care solution installed at the health centres. With its local partner, MCS, a Monterrey-based telecommunications company, iSOFT is providing an integrated, state-wide healthcare system to improve services and the quality of healthcare for a state population of more than four million people.

The project is due for completion by December 2008 and is drawing huge interest from other states in Mexico. iSOFT has also become the first company with a HIS solution that is compatible with the SIGHO HIS developed by the Sinaloa University in Culiacan, which will form the backbone of Mexico’s Connecting Healthcare Record Project, the country’s future national health IT programme.

Gary Cohen, IBA’s executive chairman and chief executive officer, said: “We are the only company in Mexico providing hospital information systems that are compatible and interoperable with state and national requirements. There is a vast opportunity for iSOFT in Mexico and Latin America through our Spanish-based products developed in our regional centre of excellence in Malaga, Spain. Mexico alone has 100,000 health centres, including 4,200 public and private hospitals.”
