UAE – Kanad Hospital in Al Ain has signed an exclusive collaboration agreement to modernize its clinical and administrative systems with InterSystems, a creative data technology provider.

As part of the new agreement, InterSystems will utilize its unified Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system fully digitized environment and optimize clinical and operational workflows at Kanad Hospital.

InterSystems is the leading provider of next-generation solutions for enterprise digital transformations in the healthcare, finance, manufacturing, and supply chain sectors.

One of its data platforms includes TrakCare – a flexible and powerful healthcare information system for delivering, managing, and transforming care.

In a press release, Ali Abi Raad, Country Manager for the Middle East and India at InterSystems, said: “Kanad Hospital’s decision to implement TrakCare demonstrates their choice of a proven, well-established EMR solution with a solid history in the UAE.”

TrakCare provides clinical, administrative, and financial information as a single, holistic source of truth about each patient to support clinicians and administrators with their decision-making process.

With a successful track record in the United Arab Emirates, TrakCare has emerged as the preferred EMR in the country.

Kanad Hospital is currently implementing the full suite of TrakCare clinical and administrative modules as a fully remote-hosted deployment from the InterSystems cloud in the United Arab Emirates.

Commenting on the transition, Keith Francis, Chief Information Officer at Kanad Hospital: “We are suited to deliver better service to our patients, increase patient safety, improve patient clinical outcomes, and enhance patient satisfaction.”

The implementation of InterSystems’ unified clinical and revenue cycle management capabilities comes as part of Kanad Hospital’s digital transformation strategy.

This strategic decision is expected to pave the way for Kanad Hospital to achieve independent digital maturity validation from the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS).

It is a clear reflection of Kanad Hospital’s commitment to achieving optimal clinical outcomes and ensuring an exceptional patient experience.

Underlining the importance of state-of-the-art data analytics, Keith Francis said: “TrakCare’s integration capabilities will allow us to have better financial control of expenses, significant improvement in revenues, and much greater visibility into our operational, clinical, and financial processes.”

Kanad Hospital, formerly Oasis Hospital, is a premier hospital recognized for its exceptional obstetric and pediatric care.

Since its inception in 1960, Kanad Hospital is widely recognized as being one of the state-of-the-art facilities in the United Arab Emirates for women and children care.

It is the first hospital to be established in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and the first private hospital in Abu Dhabi to achieve the Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation.

With over 600 healthcare professionals working at the 137-bed facility, Kanad Hospital has begun implementing the full suite of InterSystems TrakCare clinical and administrative modules.

TrakCare’s integration capabilities will enable seamless collaboration with third-party systems, optimizing existing workflows and driving Kanad Hospital’s digitization efforts forward.

As one of the most prominent hospitals specializing in the area of women and children care, Kanad Hospital is well-placed to bring valuable enhancements to TrakCare’s capabilities.

This collaboration aligns with the mission of InterSystems to help its customers to solve critical scalability, interoperability, and speed problems within their organizational network.
