A KSA hospital has demonstrated its quality of care following the implementation of InterSystems TrakCare unified health information system.

King Khaled Eye Specialist Hospital (KKESH) has renewed its top rating on the Electronic Medical Record Adoption Model (EMRAM).

KKESH was the first hospital in the Middle East to obtain a stage seven rating from the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) and is now the first to renew the validation  for use of health informatics.

This designation indicates that the hospital is employing the highest level of clinical Information Technology and advanced safety features to provide excellent patient care.

TrakCare provided KKESH with a unified healthcare information system, consolidating all patient administration, financial and clinical information in a single data repository with a common user interface, while also integrating KKESH’s other systems.

Dr Abdulaziz Ibrahim AlRajhi, Chief Executive Officer of KKESH, confirmed that this hospital’s stage seven validation renewal is in line with the hospital’s leadership strategy to transform KKESH into a digital smart hospital.

“The support and continuous communication with HE the Minister of Health contributed to the hospital’s success in implementing many plans and programmes, especially in the field of developing electronic services to obtain an accessible and more advanced service.”
