Upto 2,500 clinical staff will have the potential to access vital patient information in what will become one of IBA’s largest implementations in the corporate primary care market.

Nigel Pool, International SOS CFO, said: “International SOS needed to find a solution that could provide our growing business with a standard solution at both the corporate level and in our increasing number of clinical service delivery points.

Gary Cohen, IBA’s Executive Chairman and CEO, said: This important contract further reinforces our position as the leading provider of multi-practice, multi-discipline medical centre solutions. IBA’s clinic solution is proven to be highly scalable and ideally suited to the growing corporate medical centre market.
