LINK Development partners with Get Real Health
Partnership to provide patient monitoring and engagement solutions
LINK Development has signed up with healthcare technology provider Get Real Health to offer its award winning InstantPHR technology platform to patients and healthcare providers in the Middle East.
The InstantPHR platform provides a set of patient engagement tools, that can be used for tracking of patients health and self monitoring of patient wellness. 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. For example, healthcare providers can be alerted when patients managing chronic conditions have several health readings outside their normal target range, or experience a severe change in their mood or sleep patterns. These types of early warnings allow clinicians to intervene when necessary outside of regular appointments.
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 LINK Development healthcare solution team to customise solutions based on customers' and patients' needs.
InstantPHR will allow LINK Development to leverage its solid foundation using core Microsoft products, like SharePoint, Dynamic CRM, and HealthVault, to extend further into the healthcare sector by offering patient portal and personal health record applications to patients and healthcare organisations.
Amin Azab, managing director of LINK Development commented: "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 has a long track record of collaborating with industry and government partners in the region to develop tools, products and services that empower citizens across various services. This initiative is the latest strategic partnership that will further enhance LINK Development's robust suite of solutions."
The Arab Health IT sector is predicted to be worth $125 billion by 2015.
"We are excited to be working with LINK Development to make our InstantPHR product available to its healthcare customers around the world. The Arab Region, in particular, is experiencing rapid growth in the healthcare sector. We welcome this opportunity to work with the team at LINK Development to implement innovative patient engagement and connected care solutions that will benefit health authorities, clinicians, and patients alike," said Robin Wiener, Get Real Health president and founding partner.
