A new hospital information system is going to help one of the Philippines’ healthcare institutions to becoming more technologically equipped and operationally efficient.

According to a recent report, the innovative technology will help the clinicians of the Chinese General Hospital and Medical Centre deliver superior patient care.

Advancements in the healthcare industry are intertwined with improvements in technology.

The Director for Information Communications Technology and Data Privacy Officer of the institution explained how they patiently searched for the type of hospital system that will be able to address their current requirements of providing quality care while keeping track of the kind of hospital modernisation including data privacy and security compliance they wanted to achieve.

With Exist Software Labs’ next-generation hospital information system MERX™, the hospital is setting its sights on the highly dynamic healthcare landscape.

The breakthrough gave the hospital the distinction of being the first to comprehensively adopt web-based technology and cloud infrastructure in the management of an expansive medical institution.

Implementing robust and advanced IT systems is a major investment, not only concerning license costs but investing in tech people as well.

The hospital’s strength lies in healthcare but working with the company made them proud converts to the power of tech innovation to help carry their hospital services further.

The company’s CEO said that the web and the internet can indeed transform not just social and personal lives, but also enterprises, including hospitals.

The best technology, done right, can really empower the users to do better work. The new system will steer hospitals away from the complexities of maintaining traditional legacy systems so they can instead focus on their core delivery, which is healthcare.

Designed to address both operational and clinical requirements of hospitals, the system supports hospitals preparing for a near-paperless setup using integrated electronic medical records.

The system utilises an entirely web framework that has become the standard for enterprise systems worldwide.

Being a web-based system has given the institution the option of using the cloud. This helped them save and reduce capital expenses.

At the same time, it mitigated the risk of running their own IT infrastructure that has often plagued non-IT core organisations.

It was observed how cloud platforms can now rival traditional on-premise hardware performance while complying with global privacy and security protocols.

While a number of healthcare apps especially electronic medical records run on the cloud, there are very few precedents for operating a large tertiary hospital almost entirely on it.

By proving that a cloud setup works, smaller to mid-size hospitals on a budget have better chances to benefit from modern hospital systems at manageable costs by cutting the expenses associated with forming an IT team and purchasing hardware.

Part of the job of running a hospital is doing continuous research beyond the field of medicine – by observing other industries as well.

From manufacturing to banks, it can be seen how the widespread use of technology has become integral to business success.

With the new technology, the hospital is confident that their doctors, nurses and, other employers are now among the best-equipped to achieve the best possible outcomes to the Filipinos who entrust the institution for their health and care.
