Health Matrix, a specialized healthcare IT company with operating offices in Saudi Arabia and Jordan, has announced a new strategic alliance with Prince Sultan Cardiac Centre – Al Hasa (PSCCH) to implement a key policy and procedure (P&P) management system at its facility.
Located at Hofouf in the eastern province of Saudi Arabia, PSCCH is an entire complex of facilities and medical specialists focused on providing advanced, specialized treatment of cardiac diseases in a warm, comfortable and caring environment.
The 77-bed center is independent, governmental, not-for profit and MOH self managed facility. PSCCH started officially in 2009 with a pilot start up earlier in 2008.
The centre receives patients through referrals in Hospitals, Military Hospital and private hospitals as well in the region as well its neighboring countries.
Health Matrix said the project is intended to deliver, install, and commission the one-of-a-kind Ellucid policy manager solution from MCN Healthcare, a global supplier of policy and learning management software created by healthcare professionals, as a fully integrated healthcare P&P platform for daily operations at healthcare facilities.
It will also facilitate building a comprehensive library of proven custom-designed policies, procedures, and forms available to the medical staff anywhere and 24/7.
Dr Abdullah Ghabashi, the chief executive officer at PSCCH said, "The initiation of a policy management solution at PSCCH is major step for the center to easily customize our policies and procedures as per International standards for easy access and compliance in our facility."
"The partnership with Health Matrix and MCN Health care enables us to install such system with features of an automated policy approval workflow process as well as version control," he added.
Health Matrix CEO Abdul Rahman Qasim said the alliance was a great milestone for the company and said it was delighted to be able to provide this unique solution as Ellucid policy manager.
"We trust that we are giving PSCCH an environmental-friendly tool to enhance their daily operations’ efficiency through automating the design of their own healthcare policies, tracking the on-going updates, and enhancing their workflow management for best results while saving time and reducing cost," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
