Atos will provide support to the Ministry of Defence in the United Kingdom to enable Digital Transformation in the delivery of healthcare within the UK’s Defence services, through a contract worth an estimated total value of £25 million.
The primary objective of the CORTISONE Programme is to deliver a suite of Medical Information Services (Med IS) through the exploitation of Commercial off the Shelf products.
Through the CORTISONE programme, Atos as a delivery partner under 3D, will execute a sustainable, integrated, cohesive and enduring information capability that will fully and effectively support the delivery of evidence-based medical, dental and healthcare outputs, to achieve the aim of the Defence Medical Services.
Atos will maintain and develop the overall solution architecture, artefacts and component integration, providing technical advice and product evaluation, with Atos working closely with ISS design throughout the process.
It will set up and maintain environments, install and configure Commercial off the Shelf products, build and evaluate interfaces and support data management.
Philip Chalmers, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Atos UK and Ireland, said: “By adapting commercial industry standard products to create this suite of Medical Information Services, the CORTISONE programme will provide the Defence Medical Services with an integrated and flexible capability that enables Digital Transformation in the delivery of healthcare within defence.”
The CORTISONE programme will ensure full integration of procured components, supporting implementation and transition.
Training services and materials, alongside service management, will also be offered by Atos.
