Commenting on the m-health app, Abdelaziz Taryam, General Manager of Etisalat - Northern Emirates said, "Mobile technology can promote quality healthcare by providing relevant information and timely advice. At Etisalat, we believe that it is critical for telecom leaders to harness the benefits that mobile technology can bring to healthcare, in both sociological and economic terms. Mobile Patient Records Management is one such application designed to keep the medical industry at their optimum productivity."
He added, "We are excited to introduce this solution for the Friends of Cancer Patients Association helping them manage patient records more effectively through digitized data collection, analytics and report generation."
The solution runs on Samsung Tab II handled by FOCP staff. It consists of intuitive digital and simple forms for patient registration and examination, thereby eliminating stationary costs. FOCP administration can create new users and groups, allowing for easy search of a patient by name or by a unique ID created as part of registration.
They can export and mail the past medical data to different persons or groups for easy transfer. Patients can also use the same console to log in to see their own history.
Ameera BinKaram, President and Founding Member of FOCP, commented, "At this point in time the Emirates still lack definitive information and statistics about the demographics of cancer in the country. The gathering of this information is crucial to the creation of effective and efficient treatment and preventative programmes. Through use of the Patient Record Management Solution, we will be able to collect patient data far more effectively, putting us one step closer towards our goal of creating a functional cancer registry."
During Gitex GulfComms starting 14 October, Etisalat and FOCP will be on hand at the Etisalat booth to walk audience through the Mobile Health patient management solution capabilities and its benefits to the health sector.
