Orion Health has set another global benchmark by agreeing to build the world's largest health information exchange (HIE) for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
The HIE will take data feeds from more than 5,000 governmental and private healthcare providers to create a single, holistic view of every single patient's medical and care information. At launch the exchange will cover 32 million people, and will have the capacity to grow to well over 50 million.
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia briefed Orion Health to create a system that allows clinicians to make informed decisions and help keep people healthier, happier and out of hospital. The brief is also to create an ecosystem of data that enables the Kingdom to apply machine learning and AI to analyse and better manage large scale disease outbreaks, pandemics and ongoing chronic conditions such as diabetes.
Orion Health's appointment builds on the company's reputation as the world leader in population health technology, operating across 15 countries including 12 US states, seven Canadian provinces and 56 percent of UK NHS regions.
