Forcare is very proud that its IHE Interoperability Platform and Referral Management solution are an important part of the Philips Cardiology solution that will provide an integrated cardiovascular information system with a centralised Philips Universal Data Manager (UDM) and advanced image analysis across eight facilities throughout the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
First of its kind
This project, called Taji, is the first of its kind in the Middle East. It will create a seamless tele-cardiology network across Saudi Arabia, allowing clinicians to share patient cardiology information between the connected Ministry of Health hospitals. The solution creates a virtual care network and facilitates access to specialist opinions, sharing of resources, workflow efficiencies by creating one unified workflow, and workload balancing across hospitals. For patients this will translate to their medical information being available where needed when needed at point of care in any of the connected hospitals, and the peace of mind that their cardiology care is being managed by a network of specialists.
Forcare’s Interoperability Platform at the core
Project Taji will be implemented in the cities of Mecca, Jeddah, Al Hassa, Qassim, Jizan, Najran, Dammam and Arar. All these cities will be connected to Ministry of Health in the Saudi capital of Riyadh, which will act as the central repository. Forcare’s IHE XDS Interoperability Platform will manage the interconnectivity of the eight hospitals. This makes it possible to have central data governance and data management, and to set up cross-hospital referrals.
