May 2012 – One of Malaysia’s most reputable private hospital, Mahkota Medical Centre (MMC) has awarded a project to Nova to replace its existing system with VESALIUS Hospital and Clinical Information System.
When completed, the 288-bed hospital will see a seamless flow of information across all departments to enhance patient service and safety.
Mahkota Medical Centre is actively involved in “Health Tourism” which is strongly supported by the Malaysian government. Statistically, more than 50,000 foreign patients come to Mahkota Medical Centre for medical treatment annually.
Managed and owned by Health Management International Ltd (HMI), MMC contributes significant revenue to the group’s operations. HMI was listed on the Singapore Exchange (SGX) in 1999.
MMC has engaged Nova to digitize the entire hospital’s workflows, from admission to discharge. Using VESALIUS 9.0, MMC seeks to unify all data, administrative, clinical and financial on a single platform via seamless integration to their accounting, laboratory and professional fee systems.
Mr. Timothy Chang CEO of MMC said, “The change of our hospital information system has been contemplated, debated and evaluated over the past few years. We have met many vendors over the past years and have declined many proposals due to budgetary issues, technical challenges and/or lack of confidence with the proposals received.”
Mr. Chang added, “We are excited to have finally appointed Nova as our partners in this critical enhancement of our hospital operations. Their track record, earnest approach towards the project and understanding of our requirements gives us confidence that the transition will be well managed.”
Mr. Lai Teik Kin, CEO novaHEALTH said, “Over the past few years, our company has made a sizeable investment to improve our products and grow our team of professionals to create greater value for our customers. Obviously, we are extremely pleased with the latest success with MMC, a hospital well-regarded for its quality clinical care and efficient patient services. It reinforces our belief in the direction we are heading.”
The system is scheduled to Go LIVE in September 2012.
