iSoft, the healthcare software provider that rose to notoriety through its involvement in the NHS’ much-delayed Connecting for Health project, has been acquired by IT services provider CSC.
Now CSC has acquired iSoft, in a deal worth around £120 million. The move strengthens CSC’s position in the healthcare IT market, an especially valuable market following healthcare reforms in the US. Last year, the current UK government cut the scope and the budget of NPfIT, or Connecting for Health as it was later known. But many of the component projects continue, including the Lorenzo care records system contracted to CSC and iSoft.
