Spain's Castilla y Leon Government has awarded a multi-million euro contract to IBM and Telvent Global Services to improve management of the province's healthcare centres.

IBM and Telvent will provide consultancy and information technology services, including a new technology system for all health centres, to help Castilla transform and improve health centre procurement, logistics and supply processes.

The transformation of the healthcare centres' back office will enable greater communication among primary care centres, specialised care centres and emergency services, IBM said.

The project aims to lower costs for Castilla y Leon by streamlining operating procedures and allow the healthcare system to run more efficiently and have greater control over supplies and resources.
