Belfast-based Novosco has won a £107m contract to manage IT infrastructure and support services for Cambridge University Hospitals (CUH) NHS Trust.
The Trust is one of the largest in the UK, and is a national centre for specialist treatment of rare and complex conditions. It is one of the NHS's 16 Global Digital Exemplars (GDE), which are universities and trusts that deliver care through pioneering technology and information.
Patrick McAliskey, managing director at Novosco, said he was "delighted" that CUH chose Novosco for the contract.
"CUH 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 CUH to help them further extend their digital platform and capabilities and to help them provide even better and safer care to patients."
The MSP will provide services to support CUH's eHospital digital programme and its electronic patient record system, Epic.
Epic collects all clinical and administrative information relating to a patient in one place, improving quality, reducing duplication and eliminating unnecessary delays to patient care.
These services will include installing new secure platforms for application hosting, updating end-user computing devices and print solutions and installing resilient and reliable networks.
Dr Jag Ahluwalia, director of digital at CUH, welcomed the announcement.
"We are pleased to confirm our new partnership with Novosco and look forward to working with them to meet the next set of challenges we face in our ambitious and ongoing plan to improve healthcare through technology," Ahluwalia said.
"The further digital development of our hospital is central to improving care for our patients and providing a better experience for our staff."
