Africa gets first private healthcare information exchange

“This is the first substantial health data exchange of its kind in Africa and will dramatically improve South African patient care in the future. After an extensive procurement process by CareConnect, InterSystems was selected as the preferred technology provider thanks to its proven capabilities in Europe, especially the UK, and the US,” said Henry Adams, sales manager for InterSystems South Africa.

Dr Burnett Biddulph, CEO of CareConnect, welcomes the partnership and believes that CareConnect will benefit from the InterSystems track record of providing HIE services in various regions around the world.

“We’re excited to be partnering with a company that has had global experience in developing health information exchanges,” he said.

Traditionally, healthcare in South Africa has been very fragmented due to limited clinical information between – and among – payers and providers. The CareConnect initiative will change that.

“We believe that the CareConnect HIE will usher in a new era for South Africa’s health system by transforming the healthcare experience for the patient and the health professional,” Biddulph said.

To date, InterSystems has partnered with some of the largest HIEs in the US and UK to serve as the underlying technology behind these healthcare networks.
