Isoft has renewed contracts with two hospital groups in the Netherlands totalling €9m.

In the largest deal, Erasmus (medical centre) in Rotterdam has renewed its existing contract for iSoft’s hospital information systems for a further five years. The €6.4m contract includes licenses, maintenance and support.

Erasmus MC is the university hospital of Rotterdam and the country’s largest medical school with 1,500 students.

Hospital Diaconessenhuis Leiden, a major teaching hospital in Leiden, has also renewed its contract for iSoft’s hospital information systems and support in a three-year agreement worth €2.4m.

Dr J G den Hollander, the Diaconessenhuis Leiden Hospital’s director of operations, said: “iSoft is a proven supplier providing trusted software applications, reliable support and trouble-free service.”

Peter Herrmann, managing director of iSoft Central Europe, said: “Our technologies not only create connections between existing systems, they create value by adding new functionality, and they’re also designed to integrate perfectly with developing technologies over the coming years.”

Gary Cohen, executive chairman and CEO of IBA Health, iSoft’s Australian parent company, said: “We are now seeing the benefits of our renewed commitment to servicing our customers in the Netherlands since the acquisition of iSoft 15 months ago. We are winning their confidence, and expect more customers to follow.”
