Immediate Deployment for Projects in Mexico

CSC (NYSE: CSC) today announced that it will work with NextGate Solutions to integrate the NextGate Multi-Language Enterprise Master Patient Index (EMPI) with a selected range of the healthcare software applications provided by iSOFT, which CSC acquired in July 2011.

NextGate's Multi-Language EMPI provides language-specific logic that allows healthcare providers to link patients with their electronic health records, and implements widely accepted interoperability standards to efficiently exchange data.

The NextGate EMPI solution will be integrated with a range of CSC's innovative electronic health record (EHR) applications to form the basis of unified health information systems that will be provided in specific territories. CSC will initially deploy the NextGate EMPI in two major health records projects in Mexico at the Baja State Health Secretariat and Puebla Health Secretariat.

Fast and accurate access to a patient's medical information is essential to minimize risk and maximize the efficiency of healthcare delivery. The combination of CSC's extensive healthcare IT experience and NextGate's technology will provide a shared view of a patient across organizations, communities and regions. The NextGate Multi-Language EMPI increases data quality, reduces errors resulting from duplicate or missing information and supplies a locally configured data stewardship interface.

"The NextGate Multi-Language EMPI demonstrates the flexibility, reliability and supportability required for international projects," said Andrea Fiumicelli, chief operating officer of CSC's Healthcare Group. "This functionality enhances our single view and interoperability offerings for healthcare, and aligns with our commitment in Mexico."

"We are enthusiastic to be working with CSC," said Andy Aroditis, chief executive officer of NextGate. "Their projects extend healthcare benefits to large populations of people, and we are delighted to contribute to their mission."
