Logica and System C Deliver New Healthcare IT System in Camp Bastion, Afghanistan

System CLogica, with its sub-contractor System C, has successfully delivered a new healthcare IT system to support the UK military and NATO personnel being treated in the Camp Bastion hospital in Afghanistan.

The first phase of the important Whole Hospital Information Systems project was delivered within four months of the contract being awarded. Logica already works closely in partnership with the Ministry of Defence (MoD) in delivering its Primary Healthcare systems; the contract for this Secondary Healthcare system for the Military Treatment Facility in Camp Bastion was awarded to Logica and System C in September 2010.

System C has tailored its Medway patient administration and electronic patient record software (PAS/EPR) to meet the particular needs of the MoD. The bespoke solution supplies specialist applications such as bed management, clinical support tools, emergency department, intensive care, order communications, reporting, and patient administration.

The system has been implemented with pre-deployment training programmes and support for operational medics and nurses both in the UK and in Afghanistan.

Under the next phase of the project, Logica will integrate Medway with other legacy medical applications at the Camp Bastion treatment facility to provide further clinical enhancement for the management and treatment of patients. This will ensure that the MOD can continue to provide first class treatment to UK military personnel based in Afghanistan, as well as its NATO allies.

Steve Smart, Managing Director for Space and Defence, Logica UK said: "Logica is delighted to be involved in providing the latest medical information support systems to assist British medical military personnel, irrespective of where they are serving. We are very proud to have delivered a live system in Afghanistan - installed and operational - within four months. Working with the MoD and our subcontractor, System C, our system will support the medical teams in Camp Bastion, ensuring our military personnel continue to receive the best possible treatment and support, especially when serving in Afghanistan."

Dr. Ian Denley, chief executive of System C, said: "This is a fantastic achievement for all parties concerned. The nature and location of the Camp Bastion field hospital means that this deployment has been far from routine. The fact that it has been achieved successfully is a testament to the co-operation and team spirit of all concerned as well as to the robustness of the Medway product suite."
