Health Imaging News, June 10, 2008
NHS Connecting for Health, the agency in charge of England's National Program for IT in the NHS, has terminated its $1.77 billion contract with Fujitsu Services. The London-based Fujitsu has been in negotiations to "reset" its contract with the NHS to deliver IT systems to hospitals for more than a year. Despite earlier indications that progress was being made to resolve the differences between the two parties, NHS/CFH reported that they had failed to reach an agreement.
