"Tim Sheahan, printweek.com, 17 August 2009
Xerox has secured a £12.8m contract with Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust to handle both the digitisation and complete management of its health records.
The 10-year managed service contract, which involves sixty NHS staff moving to Xerox in a TUPE agreement, began at the beginning of August.
As part of the deal, Xerox will scan all patient records using its intelligent character recognition technology that will allow the documents to be accessed through an online portal.
In doing so, medical staff through the trust will be able to view the records that contain patient information such as administrative and appointment data.
Andy Jones, director and general manager of Xerox Global Services in Europe, said its management service "is a reliable and trusted outsourcing solution that will help the Trust to realise genuine operational benefits and innovative new ways of working".

Go Andy Jones! Go Xerox XGS (UK)!
Education, health and government are the sustainable growth markets going forward. XGS in the UK gets it. That was my story in 2005 and I'm sticking to it.
