The trusts have signed up for Ideagen's Electronic Data Management product, which will be delivered within a year.

To accommodate the group's growth it has appointed two new business professionals, Nick Hodgson and Raj Purewal.

Chief Executive Officer, David Hornsby, said: "We are delighted to have won these new contracts so soon after the completion of the Plumtree acquisition despite significant competition from well established players in the industry.

"These contract wins provide a strong start to 2013 and demonstrate the rationale for the entry in to the healthcare sector.

"We are delighted to welcome people of Nick and Raj's calibre to the team. Their experience within the sector will be highly valued within the group."
