Kony Accelerate 2019 Customer Session Spotlight: Hamad Medical

With only two weeks left before Kony Accelerate 2019, I want to put another customer session in the spotlight: Hamad Medical.

As you’ll read from the session abstract, Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) is the main provider of secondary and tertiary healthcare in Qatar, along with being one of the leading hospital providers in the Middle East. Established by Emiri decree in 1979, HMC–a non-profit–manages eight hospitals, along with the national ambulance service and a home healthcare service.

According to their website, “In January 2016, HMC achieved the significant distinction of becoming the first healthcare system across the globe to have all its hospitals accredited by Joint Commission International (JCI) under the Academic Medical Center accreditation program.” And “In November 2012, Hamad became the first hospital system in the region to achieve institutional accreditation from the ACGME International LLC.”

In 2017, two HMC facilities, the Heart Hospital and the National Center for Cancer Care and Research (NCCCR), were awarded HIMSS Analytics Electronic Medical Record Adoption ModelSM (EMRAM) Stage 6 distinction, making these institutions the first Stage 6 HIMSS hospitals in Qatar. Basically, Hamad Medical not only talks the talk, but they walk the walk–and they’ve been using digital transformation in order to do so.
