VESALIUS to be implemented in Tree Top Hospital, Maldives

Come March 2017, Maldivians will welcome a long-awaited provider to the local healthcare scene. For too long, a vast majority of the population has had to travel overseas to seek specialised care unavailable in Maldives such as interventional cardiology, neurology and critical care.

Built to international standards, the proposed 159-bed hospital named Tree Top Hospital (TTH) will be the first private hospital in Hulhumal√© and is expected to cater to the island nation’s growing population, expatriate workers, as well as serve the vast number of tourists who visit the Maldives.

To realize the management’s vision of providing access to quality care at a competitive price, TTH has sought to integrate physical design, skilled resources, streamlined workflows and technology to ensure it provides a holistic experience for its patients and visitors. Ramsay Sime Darby Healthcare (RSDH) which has been engaged to assist in the planning, design, commissioning and managing the hospital was also tasked to seek out a technology partner for the TTH project. In an field of international vendors, TTH and RSDH evaluated the software and resources of Nova along with its consortium partners over a few months.

TTH and Nova signed a long-term contract for implementation and support of a Total Hospital Information System (THIS). The system comprises of Nova’s VESALIUS Hospital Information System (HIS) which will serve as a core enterprise platform onto which other supporting systems such as Finance, Laboratory Information, Picture Archival & Communications, Human Resource/Payroll Systems and Queue Display – are seamlessly integrated.

Ramsay Sime Darby Healthcare which has been engaged to assist in the planning, design, commissioning and managing the hospital will be involved in determining the workflows and set-up of VESALIUS.
