Orion Health opens Singapore office
Solidifies its Place in the Asian Healthcare Market
Expands Regional Presence with Opening of Singapore Office
Singapore, 21 September 2012-- To support its burgeoning success in Asia Pacific, Orion Health, New Zealand’s largest privately owned software exporter and a global leader in eHealth technology, today announced the official opening of its new Singapore office. This new facility provides a new home for the company’s Singapore-based services, development and technical support teams.
Mark Capill, Regional Manager Asia Pacific, Orion Health, says, “The opening of our new Singapore office will enable us to offer improved service and responsiveness to our growing base of customers across South East Asia.”
Orion Health’s expansion into Singapore follows its acquisition of Microsoft’s HIS solution earlier this year, as well as becoming an integral part of the consortium awarded the contract to implement the National Electronic Health Record (NEHR) by the Singapore Ministry of Health in June 2010.
Orion Health HIS is a fully integrated, state-of-the-art
hospital information system that supports paperless,
integrated workflows to help improve information integrity,
reduce transcription errors and duplication of information
entry, and optimize report turnaround times.
The addition of Orion Health HIS to its portfolio has provided the company with access to the international private hospital market, including Bumrungrad International Hospital in Bangkok, Thailand. Bumrungrad has realised significant reductions in patient waiting times, laboratory and radiology processing times, as well as a reduction in the time it takes to retrieve a patient’s medical record following its implementation of Orion Health HIS.
Mark Capill says the single biggest technology challenge facing healthcare providers in Asia and around the globe is how to share clinical information between electronic silos. Orion Health Electronic Health Record (EHR) breaks down these silos and offers secure access to a single reliable and accurate patient record. This provides an ideal platform to address key issues that increase a region’s healthcare costs such as chronic disease and aging populations.
“Orion Health is committed to designing a better healthcare future for everyone, everywhere. Our expanding presence in Asia enables hospitals and government health departments across the region to confidently invest in health IT solutions that are proven to deliver better patient outcomes and reduce healthcare costs,” he says.
