Link to provide healthcare solutions
Dubai, October 9, 2013
Link Development, a leading provider of integrated software solutions in the region, has won a contract to provide Get Real Health’s InstantPHR technology platform to patients and healthcare providers in the region.
The partnership underscores the potential both organisations see in the fast-moving Arab health IT sector, which is expected to witness a soaring spend of $125 billion by 2015, when the global spend would reach $250 billion.
Amin Azab, managing director of Link Development, said: “Healthcare providers, both private and government, will be poised to claim a sizeable share of the local market when they adopt innovations around healthcare service delivery models, payment reforms, patient health record access and online care management tools.
“The InstantPHR development platform will enable us to build robust and flexible patient connected care solutions for healthcare organisations throughout the region.”
Link Development will be showcasing InstantPHR, which is integrated with the Microsoft HealthVault ecosystem, during Gitex Technology Week in Dubai to be held from October 20 to 24.
The solution offers multiple deployment options using HealthVault and SQL server and provides features, or widgets, that are available as SharePoint-compatible web parts. This provides additional flexibility to the healthcare solution team to customise solutions based on customers and patients’ needs.
InstantPHR™, a product from Get Real Health, will help regional organisations meet government initiatives by empowering patients and providers with data-rich engagement tools. This powerful app gives providers access to their patients’ holistic health record, including important daily observations tracked at home, thus providing insight into each patient’s well-being. - TradeArabia News Service
