TPP have been chosen to implement an integrated electronic medical record system to approximately 300 primary care sites across Qatar.
The project is valued at £21 million over 5 years.
TPP’s integrated electronic medical record system will be implemented in approximately 300 primary care sites across Qatar. It supports Qatar’s vision to establish a more advanced healthcare system. By allowing medical records to be shared across the country, patients’ data will be standardised and collected routinely.
Creating high quality healthcare services in Qatar
TPP’s integrated patient record will be a cornerstone of IIS’s strategy to work with partners to create a network of high quality healthcare services.
The 2 companies will start to work with clinics in the private sector over the next few months, with the first clinics due to be using SystmOne by the end of the year.
IIS will support healthcare providers with a range of innovative finance packages, as well as supply chain and technology services. The network will support patients to easily access excellent healthcare, supported by both a shared patient record and a web-based patient portal.
TPP is one of the leading companies in the UK for electronic patient record systems. It currently works with 5,000 NHS organisations, providing electronic health records on a centrally hosted database for more than 40 million patients.
