Hyderabad, May 21 (IANS) Satyam Computer Services Ltd, a leading IT services provider, and GE Healthcare Wednesday announced an agreement to support customers deploying healthcare IT solutions based on GE Centricity Enterprise software. The companies will join forces to plan, design and implement infrastructures for global healthcare providers of all sizes. They will also perform application integration and tailor solutions for providers, as needed, said a statement from Satyam.

Beginning in the fourth quarter of 2008, Satyam will be the first global systems integrator to start enrolling consultants in new GE Healthcare certification exam programmes for Centricity Enterprise Software.

The firms will staff a demonstration centre of the “hospital of the future”, which is opening in Qatar to highlight the shared vision and advanced capabilities the two companies can bring to customers.

The agreement grew from close cooperation between the companies for the benefit of customers in the Middle East and India. Consultants from GE Healthcare and Satyam helped several organisations plan, deploy and support their healthcare IT systems.

“By partnering with GE, we will offer a new level of return on investment from healthcare IT. Together, we will provide optimal software, services and healthcare knowledge and foresight,” said Prasad Dindigal, vice president and global head of healthcare at Satyam.

Headquartered in Britain, GE Healthcare is a $17 billion unit of General Electric Company. GE Healthcare employs more than 46,000 people in over 100 countries.
