STC signs deal with KFSH&RC for health project

Saudi Telecom Company (STC) has signed a master agreement with King Faisal Specialist Hospital & Research Center (KFSH&RC) in terms of supplying installations of mobile telecommunications solutions, described as the first of its kind for the health sector in the Kingdom.
The agreement will contribute to ease communication between both medical and nursing teams to speed up the decision making process. Dr. Qasim bin Othman Al-Qasabi, executive supervisor of the general organization of KFSHRC, and STC's VP for Enterprise Services Mohammed Nasser Al-Jasser signed the agreement.
Dr. Al-Qasabi said for decades KFSHRC has been keeping abreast of the latest technology in telecommunications. This is based on the policy that technology plays a very important role in achieving organizations' goals. He added that this step is within the framework of its efforts to provide the best-specialized health care services to its patients. Mobile telecommunications solutions are considered a comprehensive system operated through mobile technology with GIS coverage all over the Kingdom.
One of the most significant services included in the system is for doctors to access directly the results of diagnosis, x-ray, and all other tests instantly through mobile technology.
The system guarantees the delivery of SMS message to the doctors' mobile in case diagnostic tests are different from normal. This will help arrive at appropriate medical decisions without loss of time.
Doctors can also arrange for accepting new cases while they are not in the hospital through the mobile system. All requests for medical records including medicines, and x-ray and other tests will contribute to save time and effort in serving patients.
