According to the recently signed contract, iSOFT is going to establish an enterprise-wide, clinical and hospital management system at Cerdanya Hospital; a 216-bed facility that offers elderly care. The system will be also added to seven primary care clinics in Capcir region in France, along with the Cerdanya region of Catalonia. Lorenzo Enterprise will operate all the offered clinical services. Electronic patient record (EPR) and primary care solutions of the hospital are going to use iSOFT's Viaduct integration platform in order to establish a complete enterprise-wide, clinical and patient information management system.

This is a unique cross-border project demanding an advanced interoperable solution capable of managing a highly complex situation. A pioneering project, it fits perfectly with the European Union's e-health agenda for cross-border exchange of healthcare information."
