Orion Health continues SE Asia push with Vietnam contracts

Orion Health has signed two new contracts to supply software solutions to public and private hospitals in Vietnam, adding to its existing footprint in the Philippines and Thailand.

Orion Health will roll out its Enterprise software solution to Vinmec International Hospital, a private healthcare provider headquartered in Hanoi that services a large number of medical tourists. Vinmec plans to implement a single, integrated, multi-site interface that will enable a single view of the patient record across all of its sites.

These include Vinmec Hanoi, Vinmec Phu Quoc, Vinmec Central Park and in two clinics: Vinmec Royal City and Vinmec Saigon. The initial deployment will then be followed by a further six sites as part of the group’s bid for accreditation by the patient safety and quality accreditation organisation the Joint Commission International (JCI).

Orion Health has also signed a strategic partnership with VIT Corporation to improve hospital efficiency in several Vietnamese provinces. The pilot delivery of eHealth solutions to hospitals in the public sector will begin in Khanh Hoa province, and Orion said it expects to expand across Vietnam in the coming years.

Orion Health's senior vice president for the Asia Pacific, Darren Jones, said the agreement was pivotal for Orion Health to enjoy long-term success in Vietnam. “We see huge potential for our integrated hospital solutions throughout Vietnam and we will be actively pursuing a number of new opportunities throughout FY16,” Mr Jones said.

“This partnership with VIT Corporation will help us to strengthen our market presence and provide us with a number of additional relationships and opportunities that would have taken us years to generate on our own.”

Orion Health recently completed a fast-track roll-out of its Enterprise and Consult technologies to two hospitals in The Medical City (TMC) hospital group in the Philippines.

It also provides the hospital information system for the 580-bed, JCI-accredited Bumrungrad International Hospital in Thailand.
