ARC Hospitals breaks new ground in medical care for the Philippines with Napier HIS
Singapore-based Napier Healthcare Solutions announced today that Allegiant Regional Care Hospitals (ARC), a new and premier hospital group in the resort city of Lapu-Lapu, Cebu, Philippines, has chosen Napier Hospital Information System (HIS) to enable its operations and support its future expansion. ARC’s first hospital, currently under construction in Barangay Agus, will be running Napier HIS when it opens in early 2018.
The new facility will offer specialty services through five major departments with surgical procedures performed in two operating rooms, and a comprehensive range of imaging services. The departments are: Cardiovascular, Day Surgery, Endoscopy, Major Surgery and Obstetrics-Gynecology Surgery. Napier HIS will be central to the optimized operations of the hospital from day one. The Cloud-based system shall enable ARC’s 250 or so medical, support and administrative staff to serve up world-class healthcare efficiently and cost-effectively.
“Napier HIS is a game changer for ARC Hospitals, as we aim to create a more patient-centric environment,” said ARC CEO Julie Alegrado-Vergara. “The integration of digital technology in the overall customer experience streamlines the whole process of healthcare management, thereby reducing the stress and inconvenience of each hospital visit for our patients.”
“We are delighted to be part of ARC Hospitals’ plans to bring quality healthcare to the roughly 300,000 strong community living in this area of Cebu,” said Napier Healthcare CEO Tirupathi Karthik. “Built to global standards with the latest technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), Napier HIS gives hospital staff and management a superior user experience, streamlined workflows, complete views into operations and advanced business analytics for forward planning. It should definitely empower ARC’s physicians, nurses and administrators deliver patient-centred care and raise the bar of healthcare services in the country.”
