Computer Sciences Corp. (NYSE: CSC) signed a non-binding letter of intent Monday with the U.K. Health Department to support the U.K.’s national healthcare system.
The Falls Church, Va.-based information technology contractor said the letter establishes a framework for a contract the company may enter with the department by March 31.
The firm said the letter defines how it will provide healthcare services in the Northern, Eastern and Midlands regions of England.
The U.K. Health Department will move towards more localized initiatives and CSC will provide ambulance, community systems, digital imaging and general practitioner services.
CSC recently won a potential $297 million contract to operate Maryland’s system of tracking Medicaid claims and patients.
Nearly 900, 000 state residents are covered under Medicaid and between 200, 000 and 400, 000 more residents could join the system after federal healthcare reform laws take effect.
