LONDON -- December 21, 2012

Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has been selected by The Phoenix Partnership (TPP) to
implement a patient administration system across nine community health systems
and children’s hospitals for the National Health Services (NHS) in southern
England. Under the multi-million dollar agreement, Accenture and TPP will
create a single electronic patient record system that will enable clinicians
to access and exchange health information across community, primary and acute
care settings.

Accenture will work with the Trusts in the Southern Community & Child Health
Procurement consortium to deploy the TPP SystmOne solution and will provide
application integration, hosting, deployment and ongoing support for the
platform. In addition, Accenture and TPP will implement functionality to
support community services, community hospitals, minor injuries units and
child health, including e-prescribing during 2013 and 2014.

“We aredelighted to have been selected to help support community and child
health service providers across southern England,” said Jim Burke, managing
director for Accenture’s health business in the United Kingdom. “With the
combination of TPP’s proven and reliable technology and Accenture’s
implementation experience, patients of all ages across southern England will
see the benefits that connected health can provide.”

Currently, the NHS has more than 120,000 clinicians that are actively using
TPP’s SystmOne to access and exchange 26 million records across 2,000 provider
practices, 53 children health units, 58 community care organizations and 140
prisons. With this announcement, SystmOne is now being used by its first acute
trust and social care clients in England.

“We’ve been dedicated to working on this new procurement over the last few
months,” said Frank Hester, managing director for TPP. “To be told we’re the
successful bidder for these contracts is fantastic and we look forward to
working closely with the providers in a way that enables connected care to
become a reality for so many new communities across the South.”

The Southern Community & Child Health Procurement consortium includes nine NHS
community health systems in southern England, which extends from Kent in the
East to Cornwall in the West.
