iSOFT, an IBA Health Group company, announced that it has signed contracts with two major hospital groups in the Netherlands totalling US $ 11.3 million.

In the largest deal, Erasmus MC (medical centre) in Rotterdam has renewed its contract for iSOFT’s hospital information systems for a further five years. The US $ 8.24 million contract includes licenses, maintenance and support. Erasmus MC is the university hospital of Rotterdam and the country’s largest medical school with 1,500 students.

Hospital Diaconessenhuis Leiden, a major teaching hospital in Leiden, has also renewed its contract for iSOFT’s hospital information systems and support in a three-year agreement worth US $ 3.06 million. During the contract period, Hospital Diaconessenhuis Leiden will work with iSOFT to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of patients’ treatment.

Gary Cohen, IBA’s Executive Chairman and CEO, said: “We are now seeing the benefits of our renewed commitment to servicing our customers in the Netherlands since the acquisition of iSOFT 15 months ago. We are winning their confidence, and expect more customers to follow.”

Dr J G Den Hollander, the Diaconessenhuis Leiden Hospital’s Director of Operations, said: “iSOFT is a proven supplier providing trusted software applications, reliable support and trouble-free service. iSOFT’s systems help us to improve the quality of information for clinical staff and quality of care for patients. These are also fundamental to improving efficiency and effectiveness while driving down costs.”

Peter Herrmann, Managing Director of iSOFT Central Europe, said: “Our technologies not only create connections between existing systems, they create value by adding new functionality, and they’re also designed to integrate perfectly with developing technologies over the coming years. That’s the winning combination we provide – products that are both highly efficient and future-proof.”
