Telvent awarded a Medical Images Treatment System contract

January 20, 2004

Madrid, 20 January 2004 - Abengoa, through Telvent, its Information Technology subsidiary has been awarded with a 3,2 Euros millions contract for supplying a Medical Images Communication, Filing & Acquisition Integrated System for Huelva Sanitary Area.

By this contract, Telvent will supply the computer systems and the essential infrastructure for the substitution of conventional radiography by digital image to the five Hospitals and twelve Health Care Centers in Huelva province. This pioneering project in Spain, has as a leading feature on-line access to radiographies from every health center in Huelva, and is integrated into Telemedicine Andalusian Plan and Single Case History.

The solution is based on a distributed architecture system using a central file that receives all the information generated by the different centers, using the Corporate Network of the "Junta de Andalucía" as transmission channel. Telvent will adapt and supply the Image Transmission and Management Software, producing the integration and improvement of the current Radiological Information Departmental System existing on these Hospitals.

This system will allow a better information management, decreasing the access time to the images by the medical staff, allowing the simultaneous use of radiographies and reports from the different centers and reaching the best security levels.

Other technologies are integrated into the project: secure web access to the images and voice recognition for reports dictation.

With this new contract, Telvent reinforces its position in Health Sector after being awarded the Andalusian Public Health System Integral Command Frame and the Geographical Information System of the "Consejería de Salud".
