Open Medical Europe, a leading provider of healthcare digital transformation solutions, has signed a deal to help advance healthcare practices in Saudi Arabia.

The company, which featured on our HealthTech 50 ranking last year, is the creator of Pathpoint patient management software. 

Pathpoint is the engine powering clinical pathways and is entirely cloud-based, with no geographical constraints or local hardware requirements.

The strategic partnership, formalised through a Memorandum of Understanding, will see Open Medical collaborate with the Ministry of Health in the Kingdom and Farouk, Maamoun Tamer & Co. (Tamer) from Saudi Arabia.

It aims to deliver improvements to the Perioperative Care Clinical Pathway through a pilot programme in order to assist MOH’s aspirations to enhance surgical waiting list management across the Kingdom.

Tamer Group is an integrated healthcare and wellness Group in Saudi Arabia, the Middle East and North African region, offering a portfolio of products and services that contribute to personal wellness and public health. The company’s manufacturing and distribution services includes pharmaceuticals and vaccines, medical devices, nutrition and baby health, as well as a digital platform, eCommerce and logistics capabilities.

Is Lean the antidote to our sick & fragmented NHS?

“This alliance is dedicated to the digitalisation and automation of the pre-operative clinical pathway,” said Mohammed Soufan, digital healthcare business unit manager at Tamer Group. 

“The objective is to mitigate surgery waiting times, optimise theatre management and diminish cancellation rates. In the final analysis, this initiative aspires to enhance the quality of patient services and elevate the overall experience within the healthcare ecosystem.”

Dorota Naumiuk, chief operations officer at Open Medical, said: “We are grateful for the collaborative journey we have embarked on with the MOH in KSA and Tamer. 

“Their dedication to excellence and innovation is inspiring and has set the bar for industry standards. We are excited about our project on the optimisation of surgical care – a major step towards transforming healthcare practices. We look forward to the next chapters of this journey.”
