Perot deploys Hospital Information System across Abu Dhabi hospitals

Perot Systems : 09 September, 2008  (Application Story)
A successful roll-out of a Hospital Information System (HIS) in multiple hospitals and Primary Healthcare Centres (PHCs) in Abu Dhabi has been completed by Perot Systems.
In April 2007, the Health Authority of Abu Dhabi engaged Perot Systems to prepare an assessment of the project to help ensure that it would be implemented successfully and ultimately deliver the desired benefits. The goal of the programme was to create a system that would provide a comprehensive Electronic Medial Record (EMR) and maximise administrative efficiency.

The EMR provides a centralised platform for the management of patient information, enabling all clinicians in the organization to view a single Medical record and in the process improve safety as well the efficiency of the entire clinical process. For the PHC's patients the EMR translates into improvements in the quality of care they receive as a result of the fact that their information is centralised and physicians have a more complete picture of the patient's information.

Upon completion of the review in June of 2007, Perot Systems was asked to manage the roll out of the HIS across three public hospitals and associated PHCs. The hospitals and clinics, now run by a new government owned private company call the Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA) includes the 468 bed Tawam Hospital, 550 bed Sheikh Khalifa Medical City and 235 bed Al Corniche Hospital.

A year later, Perot Systems has successfully overseen the HIS implementation in three PHC locations. The system now provides a comprehensive EMR, supports best practice processes in all hospitals, and enables clinical, operational and financial metric reporting.

'The healthcare market in the Gulf region is growing rapidly, and to accommodate this growth and deliver healthcare of a high standard, SEHA recognizes the need to embrace technology. We appreciate the role Perot Systems has played in helping to successfully bring this system on-line,' said John Hawkins, information systems and technology director for SEHA.

'One of Perot Systems' goals is to bring our global healthcare domain expertise as an unparalleled resource for the Middle East. We expect that this HIS implementation in Abu Dhabi and our ongoing work with SEHA will not only bring great dividends for healthcare consumers in this region, but also enhance quality and reduce costs for healthcare delivery as we work in concert with Abu Dhabi and other countries in the region,' said Dr Kevin Fickenscher, executive vice president, Perot Systems' international healthcare group.
