GCI IN DEAL TO PROVIDE SOLUTIONS IN JORDAN
Malaysian firm to implement solutions in over 540 healthcare facilities in the country
GCI, a Malaysian solutions provider with niche focus in health information technology, signed an agreement to implement its solutions across all public healthcare facilities in Jordan.
“It is a proud occasion for Malaysia as this foray by GCI marks a new milestone of Malaysia’s involvement in the economy of Jordan in general and the country’s health services industry in particular.
“The solutions provided by GCI, which have been successfully implemented in other countries in the region such as Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, will bring about a new reality to the healthcare services in Jordan.
“This venture will open opportunities for more involvement by Malaysians in related sectors in Jordan,” said Malaysian Ambassador to Jordan, Zakri Jaafar, who witnessed the signing ceremony.
The six-year country-wide implementation will see GCI’s solutions being implemented in more than 540 facilities. It is part of the country’s ongoing Hakeem National e-health programme implementation initiative.
Hakeem, under the patronage of King Abdullah II, is Jordan’s National e-Health initiative, aimed at facilitating efficient and improved patient care by providing real-time and up-to-date electronic medical information in the public health system.
As part of the Hakeem project, GCI will be providing core modular solutions, focusing on patient management, billing, patient accounting and supply chain management.
This will be the company’s third key foray into the region, having done similar work in Qatar and Dubai over the last five years.
GCI also has presence in Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Abu Dhabi, Iraq and Kuwait.
“We are proud to partner Malaysia’s GCI, which has a wealth of experience in implementing these systems in many countries. We, at electronic health solutions (EHS), are looking forward to completing the system implementation in a number of medical facilities before end of this year,” said EHS board chairman Rami Farraj.
“GCI is proud to be associated with this nationwide initiative that is expected to bring immense value to an informed health delivery system and enhanced patient care environment” said GCI chief executive officer (CEO) Kana K. Thamby.
“The new systems will help improve work efficiency, in addition to saving time, effort and money,” said EHS CEO Jordan Feras Kamal.
