Orion Health expands its footprint in the Philippines

Orion Health has completed the roll-out of its Enterprise and Consult technologies to two hospitals in The Medical City (TMC) hospital group in the Philippines as part of a longer-term plan to install the technology throughout TMC's hospitals and clinics.

Orion Health first signed an agreement with TMC, which runs an 800-bed hospital in Manila as well as one in Iloilo and in the Clark Freeport Zone in Pampanga, in June 2014. TMC also runs a number of outpatient centres and clinics throughout the country.

The roll-out involves the implementation of Orion Health's Enterprise health information system and its Consult platform, formerly known as its Concerto clinical portal. The new system will give doctors, nurses and administration staff access to a single system across the TMC network.

The technology is replacing some legacy IT systems in the clinics and bespoke software in the hospitals.

Orion Health CEO Ian McCrae said the company was committed to establishing a presence in the region.

“Large hospital systems like The Medical City reach numerous patients every year, and we are honoured to be their partner to fill the gaps and bring advanced healthcare solutions to people all over the Philippines,” Mr McCrae said.

The new system has gone live at TMC Iloilo and TMC Clark, with the others to be implemented in the next 12 months.
