Wipro to Develop Next-Generation Enterprise Master Patient Index (eMPI) Solution for NHS Scotland


Wipro Limited (NYSE:WIT, BSE: 507685, NSE: WIPRO)), a leading global
information technology, consulting and business process services company
today announced that it has won a twelve-year contract from NHS Scotland
to build a next generation Enterprise Master Patient Index (eMPI)
solution. NHS Scotland is the region's National Health Board working
towards reducing health inequalities and improving health conditions.
This solution, which will be hosted in Scotland, will help NHS Scotland
transition from its current legacy Community Health Index System (CHI)
to offer cost effective, efficient, paperless and patient-friendly
healthcare services in Scotland.

Wipro has partnered with NextGate for this project. Wipro will leverage
NextGate's award-winning MatchMetrix® platform so as to enable the eMPI
solution to link and manage data from patients, partner institutions and
third party organizations.

In line with NHS' future requirements, Wipro with NextGate will build a
scalable solution to enable healthcare providers in the Scottish
healthcare boards to maintain unique patient identifiers. The solution
based on NextGate's MatchMetrix platform, will integrate with other
existing NHS Scotland legacy systems. It has the ability to compare
patient records from disparate applications, and link together multiple
patient records for simplified and accurate cross-platform validation of
patient data. The solution increases efficiency by reducing time spent
on searching for patient information, freeing up resources to focus on
providing safe treatment.

"We are pleased to be working with Wipro, a leading global information
technology company, and NextGate, the leader in healthcare identity
management, to move our Mainframe Solutions Transformation Programme
(MSTP) initiative forward," said Andy Robertson, Director of IT at
NHS, National Services Scotland.
He added, "The modernization of our
CHI system using their technology will help us deliver the highest
standards of healthcare to the people of Scotland in a cost effective
and efficient manner."

Jeffrey Heenan Jalil, Senior Vice-President and Global Head,
Healthcare, Life Sciences & Services, Wipro Limited, said
, "We
are delighted to have been selected as a partner by NHS Scotland and
believe that this initiative is a step towards efficient data management
to provide improved quality and integrated care. Wipro understands that
technology is a strategic enabler, and offers ways to improve patient
outcomes, expand access, and enhance patient experience. We are
investing in building next-generation data management technologies,
which will form the backbone to deliver connected and seamless

Andy Aroditis, CEO, NextGate said, "NHS Scotland is taking a
visionary approach to the new CHI system. The detailed and comprehensive
selection process showed their passionate interest in developing a
full-featured, efficient, and supportable solution to drive better
information management for the benefit of patient care. NextGate is
