Saudi Arabia NGHA plans to expand QuadraMed CPR service

QuadraMed : 22 July, 2008  (Application Story)
The Saudi Arabia National Guard Health Affairs (NGHA) based in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, has signed a contract for QuadraMed CPR (QCPR) service expansion, migration to InterSystem's Cache database and interface licenses that represent sales bookings of approximately US$8.8 million, with a total contract value of approximately US$10.6 million.
The agreement covers the rollout of the QCPR product to the NGHA facilities throughout the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Currently installed at one hospital and four primary healthcare centres in the central region of Riyadh, QuadraMed will install QCPR at three additional hospitals and twelve primary healthcare centres: two primary healthcare centers in the eastern region, eight in the western region and two in the central region of Saudi Arabia.

The Saudi Arabia NGHA provides modern medical care to National Guard employees and their dependents, as well as to Saudi Nationals with tertiary health problems. Under the umbrella of NGHA, there are four hospitals and sixty primary and secondary health centres around the Kingdom. Supplying the only Level I trauma centre in the Kingdom, NGHA has achieved the lowest mortality and morbidity rates among the patient population.

'The expansion of our relationship with Saudi Arabia NGHA adds to our growing install base within the Middle East, which also includes King Fahad hospital in al-Khobar, Saudi Arabia. Our selection during a competitive review also indicates that QCPR is a competitive product in the Middle East and clients there value the regionalisation available within QCPR,' said Keith Hagen, QuadraMed's president and chief executive officer.

The QCPR contract helped fuel robust sales bookings for QuadraMed in the first half of 2008. Additionally, the company experienced strong sales success across its various product offerings. Sales bookings for the first two quarters of the year reached $33.5 million, a 36 percent increase over the same period in 2007. Reflecting the strength of the company's broad product portfolio and brand appeal, several large hospital systems selected QuadraMed's enterprise health solutions to enhance their quality of care and improve financial performance.

'Our strong sales success is being driven by our clients' trust in QuadraMed's ability to deliver proven solutions and enhance Patient safety and outcomes,' added Hagen. 'We appreciate the confidence that clients have in our ability to help them achieve the highest clinical performance while optimising their ROI. This quarter's sales performance further validates our strategy and our decision to acquire the QCPR product last year.'

Also, during the three months which ended June 30, 2008, QuadraMed signed several other significant sales and services contracts including:

Agence de la sante et des services sociaux de l'Estrie, Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada, for the QCPR Radiology information system application for US$1.1 million.

Holland Community Hospital, Michigan, for Enterprise Scheduling and Electronic Document Management for $1.1 million.

Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center, Downey, California, for Quantim Coding and Compliance and Electronic Document Management for $800,000.

NYC Health and Hospitals, New York, for additional QCPR software and services for $475,000.
