George Eliot Hospital NHS Trust signs on as Sunquest's first international IntelliCare client.

TUCSON, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 20, 1997--Sunquest Information Systems Inc. (NASDAQ:SUNQ), announced George Eliot Hospital NHS Trust as the first international hospital to purchase Sunquest's IntelliCare(R) clinical information systems.

The Sunquest data repository stores, validates and organizes data from multiple, disparate systems offering enterprise-wide, on-line access of data. Also implemented for the first time internationally is Sunquest's CareGiver(R) orders and results management system. The IntelliCare and CareGiver products offer real-time access to patient records and can be channeled through a hospital enterprise.

The George Eliot Hospital NHS Trust is located in the semi-rural town of Nuneaton, England. It offers acute services to a population of approximately 200,000 individuals from the counties of Warwickshire, Staffordshire, and Leicestershire.

"Having advertised our 'Incremental HIS' Strategy and received proposals from a variety of recognized HIS vendors, we chose Sunquest based on their ability to provide integrated clinical information systems. Sunquest demonstrated their aptitude to integrate their solution with all existing systems at George Eliot NHS Trust," said David Thomas, director of information. "Sunquest had the core products to meet our strategy of improved access to clinical information delivery.

"Having successfully implemented our first phase of systems from Sunquest, we look forward to installing IntelliCare and CareGiver as part of our push towards delivering a Computerized Patient Record and order communications environment"

Richard A. Wesson, chief operating officer of Sunquest, stated, "Sunquest has been recognized as a leader of clinical information systems nationally. The system at George Eliot is a significant step in broadening Sunquest's reach. We look forward to future Sunquest systems implementations within the international health care arena."
