Bangkok - Sikarin Hospital, one of Thailand's leading health service providers, has signed a five-year deal for iSOFT hospital information systems (HIS) under a move to provide a full electronic medical record (EMR) for all patients and so improve its services, the quality of care and patient safety.
Under plans to extend its patient services and secure JCI accreditation, Sikarin Hospital needed a scalable, proven hospital information system to improve communications and productivity across the hospital, and so help cut patient waiting times and costs.
With comprehensive services and workflows across the 215-bed inpatient hospital and growing demands on the 2,800 a day outpatient clinic, Sikarin Hospital chose iSOFT's Enterprise Management and Health Intelligence solutions to replace an existing home-grown hospital information system that is unable to support its ambitions and future growth. The solution will give clinicians instant, point-of-care access to a full EMR and accurate patient information to help improve patient care and safety significantly.
"We have evaluated many solutions and found the iSOFT HIS to be most suitable to support our growing requirements," says Dr.Thongchai Chatrayingmongkol, Hospital Director, Sikarin Hospital. "As an award winning hospital, it is our goal to continually improve services for our patients. With iSOFT's solution, its global experience and local expertise we are able to build on this as a solid platform for our expansion."
Sikarin Hospital is rated as ‘The Best Under a Billion' by Forbes magazine, after being judged as one of the best 200 companies in Asia, with sales of more than US$1 billion.
"This is an important partnership for iSOFT and supports our growth in Thailand," said James Rice, Managing Director of iSOFT's business in the Asia Pacific region. "We will continue to work closely with the Sikarin team to drive improvements across their facility to improve patient care and operational efficiencies."
iSOFT's hospital information system will be implemented across all hospital departments to improve patient flow, clinical efficiencies and patient outcomes. The enterprise-wide system will provide access to patient information for authorised staff anywhere in the hospital to support faster, accurate diagnosis and better quality of care. The move also underpins the hospital's drive to improve patient safety and so achieve the JCI Accreditation Standards for Hospitals.
