At the HC2008 Healthcare Computing conference in April – I was glad I attended – staff from CSC were on the stand of “Alert”, demonstrating a Portugese patient management and electronic patient record system. Alert is a potential competitor to the “Lorenzo” healthcare system which is due to be installed by CSC and NHS IT staff at trusts in the Midlands and north of England.
This was no clear explanation for this at the time, but perhaps it has something to do with the issues highlighted in a confidential report on Lorenzo, details of which we published this week. More on this on Monday.
