COA wins £3.6m NHSScotland deal

COA will supply all 22 Scottish health boards with finance software suite

COA Solutions has won a £3.6 million contract to supply all twenty-two
Scottish health boards with a comprehensive portfolio of financial, procurement
support, business intelligence and document management software solutions.

This ‘Health Business Suite’ is being implemented as part of a drive to
achieve shared services working throughout NHSScotland. The planned completion
date for fully implementing the new system is March 2009.

Implementing COA Solutions software throughout NHSScotland forms part of the
Scottish Government’s Efficient Government Initiative and will help to deliver
the Government’s planned efficiency targets.

NHS National Services Scotland, the body overseeing NHSScotland’s move
towards a common software platform is running the shared support services
programme and expects the COA Solutions project to be a key enabler of the
quality and efficiency gains.

‘Health boards will be able to more easily share staff, responsibilities and
information. As well as creating a more streamlined financial service, this will
free-up time and resources,’ said John Francis, a director of the shared support
services programme.
