System C Wins MoD Contract for Healthcare Software to Support Troops in Afghanistan

System C HealthcareSystem C has been selected to supply its Medway family of healthcare software to support UK and NATO troops fighting in Afghanistan. The company will deploy its Medway Electronic Patient Record, clinical and patient management applications at the Ministry of Defence Medical Treatment Facility at Camp Bastion, Britain's main military base.

Situated in Helmand Province, Camp Bastion's state of the art hospital treats civilians and Afghan nationals, as well as multi-national military personnel working across the country.

Dr Ian Denley, chief executive of System C, said the company was proud to be selected for such an important job. "We are very pleased to have an opportunity to help support British and NATO troops in the role they are playing in Afghanistan", he said.

The use of Medway will also become part of the MoD's Afghanistan pre-deployment training programme for operational medics and nurses from both the UK armed forces and Britain's NATO partners.

System C will be working with Logica to train operational staff both in the UK, at the Army Medical Services Training Centre at Strensall, near York, and overseas.

Logica is the prime contractor for the project and will ensure that System C's Medway products are successfully integrated with existing MoD software applications, in order to provide a first class clinical platform for the management and treatment of patients.

System C will initially be supplying software for specialist applications such as bed management, clinical support tools, emergency department, intensive care, order communications, reporting, and patient administration.
