- CSC to bundle healthcare services around intellectual property

- Deward Watts appointed to lead practice

- Vertical focus supports CSC Project Accelerate strategy

FALLS CHURCH, Va., April 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Computer Sciences Corporation (NYSE: CSC) today announced the launch of the company's new Healthcare Sector, a dedicated vertical business unit serving healthcare providers, health plans, pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers and allied industries globally. The Healthcare Sector organization positions CSC as a global leader in transforming the healthcare industry through the effective use of information to improve healthcare outcomes, decision making and operating efficiency.

CSC's Healthcare Sector will leverage core intellectual property to help clients innovate new or enhanced clinical and business processes, including processes related to supply chain management, revenue cycle management, claims processing, document management and clinical trial management. The group is bolstered by the 2007 acquisitions of First Consulting Group, an information technology (IT) services organization dedicated to healthcare and providing increased offshore delivery scale, and Covansys, which strengthened CSC's offshore domain expertise while creating an additional market channel for industry, consulting and outsourcing solutions.

Healthcare Sector offers clients onshore and offshore expertise with the major clinical information systems, claims processing systems and enterprise content management systems used by the healthcare industry. In addition, application management services and business process outsourcing (BPO) offerings are supported from CSC's healthcare centers in Bangalore and Chennai, India.

Deward Watts, 61, has been named President of Healthcare Sector. Watts has been with CSC for 12 years, and previously led the Americas Healthcare practice as vice president and managing partner. Watts will report to CSC Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Michael W. Laphen.

"Organizing CSC's global healthcare resources into a single vertical organization better positions CSC to help our clients use information to transform healthcare," said Watts. "Our main focus will be delivering IT-based innovation that improves patient outcomes and the decision making of providers, payers and life sciences organizations."

The dedicated healthcare services business unit supports CSC's Project Accelerate growth strategy by further positioning the company as an industry- focused provider of technology-enabled solutions.

"The Healthcare Sector targets a key market for Project Accelerate's success," said Laphen. "The new business unit places CSC's commercial healthcare business under common leadership and allows for closer coordination between the public sector and commercial healthcare practices."

CSC has 20 years of experience in the healthcare industry, with clients in the Americas, Europe, Asia and Australia. The company currently serves 14 of the world's top 20 pharmaceutical manufacturers, and is building and operating health information exchanges in the United Kingdom, The Netherlands, Denmark and the United States.
