BT could win new Cerner deal

1st April 2010

BT looks set to be awarded a deal to install Cerner Millennium at three new hospital trusts in the south of England.

According to E-Health Insider, the new deal is currently with the Treasury awaiting approval.

Recently, BT completed migration of the seven live Cerner trusts installed by Fujitsu into the BT data centre, enabling it to standardise the version of Millennium used by NHS trusts in London and the South.

BT now looks set to implement Cerner at North Bristol, Oxford Radcliffe and Royal Bath trusts with all three committing to match local funding to national NPfIT funding.

With the trusts having had to complete a business case approval process, it is understood that Cerner teams are already in place ready to move the project forward to a target implementation date of the end of this year.

EHI understands that the new ‘greenfield’ deal is likely to be announced as part of a revised contract for London and the South with a new deal likely to see BT required to deliver new systems to a smaller number of hospital trusts.

There is evidence that BT is starting to rebuild a momentum within the hospital sector.

It has just announced a go-live at St George’s Healthcare NHS Trust and at the end of last year completed a go-live at Kingston Hospital.

This took the number of London Cerner sites to eight, with a further seven in the South.

If the deal goes ahead, it could see 21 NHS hospital trusts running Millennium by the end of 2010.
