Saudi Arabia’s first Mayo Clinic Care Network member, Inter Systems, has announced the start of its unified electronic medical record (EMR) system. TrakCare is presently in use at the International Medical Center (IMC), a multidisciplinary hospital in Jeddah that operates numerous sites throughout the city. This comes after the signing of a contract in November of 2020.
Khalid Alem, Deputy CEO of IMC, said, “It will be an exciting journey for us to adopt the new EMR. TrakCare will enhance IMC’s cloud footprint in line with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s cloud-first strategy, as we will become the first hospital to use cloud-based EMR.” TrakCare combines clinical, administrative, and financial information as a single source of truth for each patient in one EMR, with built-in integration technology [to] keep it up to date with data across an organization. It presently serves 100 million people in 27 countries.
This newest move is part of the company’s attempts to comply with Saudi Vision 2030 and provide world-class healthcare to patients through technological advancements and digitization. The Kingdom’s Vision 2030 intends to accelerate the digital transformation of health services and encourage new public-private partnerships for better clinical and financial outcomes.
