Belfast IT firm Novosco has won a major £107m contract with the NHS in England, it has emerged.
The cloud-computing firm, which employs around 180 staff, landed the deal to manage IT infrastructure and support services for Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
The trust runs Addenbrooke’s and The Rosie maternity hospital and is one of the largest and most digitised trusts in the UK.
It’s understood the contract is worth £107m over seven years, and will see Novosco provide a range of services to support the trust’s eHospital digital programme and its electronic patient record system.
It adds to Novosco’s existing portfolio of health sector clients, which includes a number of UK NHS trusts.
Earlier this year, Novosco was crowned the Outstanding Business of the Year at the 2018 Belfast Telegraph Business Awards in partnership with Ulster Bank.
Novosco managing director, Patrick McAliskey, said: “Cambridge University Hospitals is regarded as one of the leading lights in healthcare digital transformation in the UK and we are delighted that they have chosen Novosco to provide these vitally important IT services.
“We look forward to working with Cambridge University Hospitals to help them further extend their digital platform and capabilities and to help them provide even better and safer care to patients.”
