TrakCare is already being used by NHS Lothian, and it will be adopted by Ayrshire & Arran, Borders, Grampian, Greater Glasgow & Clyde, and Lanarkshire. 70% of the population are covered by these boards.
The major benefit of TrakCare is that patient information can be entered once and then accessed by authorised staff in any participating location.
"This contract will enable Health Boards across Scotland to implement a single, nationally available patient management system that will play a major role in improving patient services," said Scottish Health Secretary Nicola Sturgeon.
"Clinicians and patients will both be winners from a system which will track patient journeys from referral to discharge. It means clinicians will have easier and quicker access to medical records and patients will benefit from having more time with healthcare professionals," she added.

"The decision to use Health Board staff from many departments in the selection process has given us a clear understanding of NHS Scotland's immediate requirements and long-term vision. We are now ready to focus on delivering TrakCare for the benefit of patients and staff across Scotland," said Kerry Stratton, healthcare managing director of InterSystems.
TrakCare has also been recently adopted by the States of Jersey and the States of Guernsey (Channel Islands), the Santiago Military Hospital (Chile) and the Sharjah Teaching Hospital (United Arab Emirates).
