Professor Stuart Bain, Chief Executive, National Services Scotland, commented: "The ability to quickly share clinical information securely throughout the medical communities within Scotland, will undoubtedly be of great benefit to both patients and staff alike."

Implementation will begin with two initial sites in Glasgow; the Southern General Hospital, which includes the Institute of Neurological Sciences and the Victoria Infirmary. A phased roll-out will follow over the next 2.5 years with full deployment anticipated in 2008. Kodak's association with the Scottish e-health project builds on an existing NSS contract for the purchase of Kodak PRACTICEWORKS dental software.
