Orion Health strengthens focus on South-East Asia

Digital health technology company Orion Health is bringing its flagship unified healthcare platform (UHP) to South-East Asia.

The announcement coincides with the appointment of Timothy Kim as Asia Sales Director. Kim returns to Orion Health with experience as a registered nurse, as well as with skills in developing and implementing clinical solutions in the US and across South-East Asia over the last quarter of a century.

Orion Health VP for APAC Niru Rajakumar said, “Across South-East Asia we have seen a move to population health, preventative care and health systems seeking to maximise their data to get better insights. The future of health care will be underpinned by the UHP empowering people, revealing insights from data and unifying healthcare silos seamlessly.”

The UHP comprises three building blocks: the Amadeus Digital Care Record, which consolidates patient data across care settings, enhancing care coordination across settings, and has been deployed more than 70 times around the world to HIEs and ShCRs; the Virtuoso Digital Front Door, which enables people to access their data and navigate their healthcare journey; and the Orchestral Health Intelligence Platform for real-time insights and predictive analytics to improve clinical outcomes and population health.

By design, the UHP is complemented by, and connects to Orion Health’s Hospitals Electronic Patient Record, a hospital information system which has already been deployed in the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. The hospital information system supports the delivery of optimised health care by streamlining administrative and clinical workflows. It seamlessly connects disparate systems, empowering healthcare professionals to make informed decisions from one system.

“I have seen first-hand how the challenges and opportunities facing health care can be met by unlocking data from silos, giving people access to their health data and applying the power of new technology such as artificial intelligence (AI) to large-scale, healthcare-specific data sets,” Kim said.

“The Orion Health Hospitals information system and the UHP elevate the patient experience, providing an elegant, patient-centric journey through the health system. I look forward to collaborating with health systems in places like Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore as well as our existing partners in Thailand and Vietnam,” Kim said.
