CSC agrees to provide EHRs to the U.K.

Despite the U.K. Parliament's determination last summer that the National Health Service's investment in Computer Sciences Corporation to provide electronic health records to providers in that country was a failure, it looks as though the two sides are giving it another go. According to iHealthBeat, CSC signed a nonbinding letter of intent to provide health IT software to various NHS trusts. The agreement, U.K. government officials hope, will save taxpayers roughly £1 billion (around $1.6 billion U.S.). One of Parliament's previous charges against CSC was that the investment in electronic health records produced no benefits to taxpayers. A committee also said the project was behind schedule and over budget. Article
