GE Healthcare landed a deal valued at more than $200 million to provide picture archiving and communication systems technology to 72 hospitals and clinics in southern England. The contract was signed with Fujitsu Services, the designated service provider for the southern region of the National Health Service in the U.K. government's ambitious national program for healthcare information technology. The U.K. in May announced plans to install a nationwide digital imaging system to allow on-demand transmission of patient records and medical images to every doctor and hospital in the country. The program is being implemented in five regions, with the southern region being the largest representing about one-third of the required picture archiving and communications technology. -- by Cinda Becker
