Agreement aims to facilitate digital transformation of local hospitals
The Malaysian Healthcare Travel Council (MHTC) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) aimed at helping Malaysia become a leading destination for healthcare tourism in the Asia-Pacific.
HIMSS, a nonprofit consultation group in health system transformation with an extensive membership globally, will participate in Malaysia’s Flagship Hospital Initiative as a strategic partner in elevating the worldwide profile of the country’s most prestigious hospitals. The group will work with these hospitals
to reach HIMSS Electronic Medical Record Adoption Model (EMRAM) Stage 7 capacity building by 2025.
The EMRAM evaluates clinical outcomes, patient engagement, and clinician utilisation of EMR technology to improve organisational performance and health outcomes across patient groups. The MHTC will then suggest the EMRAM system be applied to all its 73 member hospitals and further develop its digital infrastructure.
The key strategies of the MOU for promoting innovation and sustainable growth of the healthcare sector include knowledge-sharing and capacity- building efforts to promote digital transition. Strategic thought leadership to establish a value proposition for Malaysia by using both parties’ healthcare travel and wellness resources and experience will also feature prominently, as will use of HIMMS’ regional and global network to boost Malaysian healthcare’s visibility among target markets.
