Telvent to develop radiological information systems for the Andalusian public health service

May 8, 2007

Madrid, May 8, 2007 – Telvent GIT S.A. (Nasdaq: TLVT), the Global RealTime IT Company, announced today the signing of a contract with the Andalusian Health Service (SAS), worth more than three million euros, to develop and implement a Radiology Information System (RIS) and a centralized medical image management system (PACS) in more than 40 hospitals throughout Andalusia. This project places Andalusia at the forefront of medical image management, with its PACS system having one of the largest image storage capacities in the world.

Under this contract, all radiological procedures and tests performed on patients, as well as activities carried out in Radiology Departments throughout Andalusia, will be comprehensively and integrally managed by technological systems provided by Telvent. Andalusian citizens and health professionals will benefit from centralised and secure image storage and distribution, and the system will be accessible to and available for all authorised users.

“The SAS solution will allow patients and healthcare professionals across Andalusia to access all radiological information from anywhere at anytime. This is an excellent example of how Telvent is providing state-of-the-art technology solutions to its public sector clients, enabling them to deliver improved services for their citizens” stated Manuel Sánchez Ortega, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Telvent.

Telvent carried out a detailed study of the Andalusian Health Service (both its IT and information systems), and was able to offer a solution in which the new systems can be easily adapted to the existing ones. The solution also allows global management of the entire radiological process, thus improving services offered to citizens and health professionals alike, who are able to access information in real-time.

Telvent will integrate more than 40 Andalusian hospitals through one corporative RIS and web browser, thus guaranteeing global and integral organization of all radiological activities at regional level, as well as secure storage and housekeeping for all radiological documentation. The corporative resources will also allow full access to all documentation, and all their functionality will be incorporated into the corporative applications and interfaces.

Telvent is developing and implementing these solutions both nationally and internationally in more than 250 health centers managed by over 40,000 health professionals, reducing patient waiting lists by 15%.
