PureCS partners with InterSystems and Apelon to power MoHAP’s Riayati platform for healthcare
The UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) has unveiled that Riayati program for exchange of healthcare information, continues its plan to connect government and private hospitals and more than 2,500 other healthcare facilities including clinics, diagnostic centres, dialysis centres, and pharmacies. The platform will also integrate with Nabidh, Malaffi, the current centralised database for real-time public health information exchanges, and services of ICA (Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship), transforming the healthcare landscape in the country.
The Riayati program is a state-of-the-art platform for the National Unified Medical Record (NUMR) programme launched under the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. It is set up to improve patient healthcare experience in the UAE through a centralised and integrated healthcare system. The initiative will increase accessibility of patient health data in the UAE through connecting public and private health facilities and information exchange.
PureCS will implement and operate the platform for MoHAP in partnership with InterSystems, and Apelon. The single patient filing system will be accessible to healthcare professionals across the UAE. InterSystems’ HealthShare will be used as the interoperability software to exchange health information securely, connecting providers, patients, and Health Regulators. It also serves as the foundation for collaborative, value-based care and population health management that will provide a secure technology infrastructure for the Northern Emirates HIE.
Apelon is a clinical informatics organisation focused on accelerating eHealth through data standardisation and interoperability. Apelon’s terminology solutions will normalise the clinical data received from different organisations and will make it ready for machine learning and artificial intelligence.
Mubaraka Ibrahim, Director Information Technology Department at MoHAP, said, “We are proud to implement the Riayati programme, which is being rolled out under the UAE Vision 2021. The platform will benefit the entire UAE, connecting public and private sector healthcare providers for a truly seamless care experience for patients. The programme will streamline clinical workflows, helping better management of patient population that is critical to meet the rising demand. This platform will generate new insights, improve the quality of care and health outcomes for the population.”
The Riayati programme will empower healthcare providers secure access to the right health data for the right people in real-time.
