Bahrain Ministry of Health to get new EAM solution
Azimuth to roll out Infor EAM to manage assets and staff across all hospitals and health centres in Bahrain
Bahrain's Ministry of Health has launched a major project to improve patient care and efficiency across all of its hospitals.
The Ministry has appointed system integrator Azimuth to roll out Infor's Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) solution, which will provide equipment tracking, staff security and patient safety services.
The project will delivered in phases over the next 18 months, and will cover all hospitals and medical centres across the country, including Salmaniya Medical Complex,
Azimuth, which specialises in healthcare solutions, will provide the entire Ministry with a new Biomedical Engineering solution, based on Infor's Enterprise Asset Management system, which will manage over 150,000 medical devices, including Syringe Pumps and MRI Scanners distributed throughout the country.
Utilizing a combination of Barcodes, RFID Tags and Real Time Tags, the system will deliver a paperless engineering management solution for biomedical engineers and total asset visibility for the Ministry's clinical and administrative teams.
Once fully deployed, adding Staff and Patient tags, the solution will manage and monitor the provision of care, enabling Senior Clinical Staff to manage their resources more effectively empowered by immediately available, accurate and real time information.
The operational and fiscal benefits to be gained by the Ministry from the implementation of Infor EAM in their hospitals and medical center provides a solution that enables the effective use of data and, together, solve a previously intractable problem.
"Infor's Enterprise Asset Management Solution is able to provide measurable enhancements to hospital operations and deliver a flexible and scalable platform that will support progressive procedures to ultimately deliver superior levels of clinical and customer service for the citizens of Bahrain. The project's ground-breaking goals will place Bahrain at the forefront of healthcare technology in this field, providing the Ministry with a complete understanding of the equipment status in its facilities and a deep understanding of clinical delivery in Salmaniya hospital," said Lee Miles, managing director, Infor Middle East and India.
"Removing the challenge of locating assets across the country and ensuring that all devices are serviced regularly to improve patient care is a critical deliverable for the Ministry of Health. Together with Infor, our ultimate goal is to remove the burden of inventory management and reduce constant checking, allowing clinical staff to spend more time in the provision of care for their patients and improve clinical governance," added Hugh Haskell-Thomas, principal consultant, Azimuth.
