The King Khaled Eye Specialist Hospital (KKESH), a tertiary care ophthalmic facility operated by the Ministry of Health (MOH) of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, has selected InterSystems’ TrakCare, an internet-based unified healthcare information system (HIS), to help provide the best quality of care to its patients.

KKESH will implement TrakCare to help transform and optimise the quality and efficiency of care delivery.

TrakCare will enable KKESH to look at a complete patient record in a single electronic medical record.

Authorised healthcare professionals may then access the seamless integrated electronic patient information from all departments and laboratories, at all times.

With access to a safe and up-to-date online system with details of the patient’s condition using internet-enabled devices including mobiles and tablets, clinicians can provide a more patient-centric service.

Advanced Electronics Company (AEC) is a strategic partner of InterSystems and a provider of technology products and services in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

"The selection of TrakCare by KKESH is a strategic move to embrace electronic health information systems in order to provide the best quality of care to their patients."

AEC strategic sector manager – healthcare Othman AlDahash said: "The selection of TrakCare by KKESH is a strategic move to embrace electronic health information systems in order to provide the best quality of care to their patients."

The TrakCare system will also support KKESH’s growth in services.

InterSystems Middle East and India country manager Michel Amous said: "We are delighted that King Khaled Eye Specialist Hospital has selected InterSystems TrakCare as its healthcare information system, and we look forward to a successful implementation in the coming few months."
