Innerworks Delivers Advanced Hospital and ERP System to the Largest Private Healthcare Company in MENA​

The Challenge

Rapid business growth and evolving health care requirements demanded a re-engineering of a hospital’s legacy system. As a leader operating several JCI-accredited hospitals, our client wanted to create a robust hospital information system to improve its operations.​

Requirements for adaptability, performance, and interoperability were very high.​

Faced with disconnected workflows and isolated patient data, the client sought to build a connected, comprehensive, and interoperable hospital solution.​

Client needed a web-based hospital solution that will connect and synchronize patient data, streamline patient administration, reduce paperwork and costs, and optimize workflow across the care continuum.​

The Solution

The project was divided into:​
– a reverse engineering of the legacy application;​
– an extensive systems analysis and design; and,​
– development of a web-based fully integrated hospital solution and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system​

Innerworks designed a scalable, standards-based system architecture for the new hospital information system. Scalability enables the system to suit the varying requirements from hospital to hospital. Standards-based architecture promotes interoperability, which is critical for facilitating data exchange.​

Integrating more than 600 modules and submodules into one web application, Innerworks reverse engineered and created a web-based solution that connected different modules for the following departments:​

– Accounting​
– Admission and discharge​
– Laboratory​
– Information Technology​
– Human Resources​
– Surgery​
– Pharmacy​
– Food and Dietetics​
– Blood Bank​
