MONTREAL – CHCA Computer Systems,
developer of the OR management system called Opera, announced that the
solution has been adopted by the Assistance Publique – Hôpitaux de
Paris, through a supplier consortium made up Thales Group, Medasys and
the European distributor of Opera, GE Healthcare.
With 37 hospitals, the AP-HP is treating more than one million patients
a year and employs nearly 92 000 persons. According to CHCA, this
project represents one of the largest healthcare IT contracts awarded in
France in years.
“For CHCA, this important contract is the result of our growing
recognition in the European market, where we have won important
contracts in many countries; in Finland, for example, where we supply
almost all the hospitals of the country with Opera. Our leading position
on the European market is now confirmed with the signature of this new
contract with AP-HP”, says Denis Thomassin, president of CHCA.
Already installed in 160 Operating Room suites around the world,
including approximately 50 hospitals and private clinics in the province

surgical services, the company says.
