New Laboratory Information System (LIS)
In light of what the Ministry of National Guard's Health Affairs is witnessing in its digital transformation journey, a new project “Laboratory Information System (LIS)”, has been launched within the MNG-HA’s Electronic Health Record System "BestCare", on Friday, the 2nd of October 2020.
The first phase of the project includes its launch and implementation in the Central Region in King Abdulaziz Medical City - Riyadh and all the Primary health Care Centers, total of 17 centers.
Moreover, within the upcoming 3 months, the project will be launched in all MNG-HA’s medical cities in Jeddah, Dammam, Al-Ahsa and Al Madina.
In conjunction with the launch of New Laboratory Information System (LIS), an integrated technical support team and a Hot-Line were established to provide technical support around the clock to all NGHA Health practitioners and system users.
The New Laboratory Information System (LIS) is characterized as a project with a strategic dimension for MNG-HA, as it aims to process and store patient data in a unified database and bypass the challenges of linking the medical systems in the facility, as well as to reduce the operational cost of the systems, and to transfer, localize knowledge and eliminate future costs when implemented in new health facilities.
Last but not least, the Ministry of National Guard -Health Affairs is always keen on keeping pace with the digital transformation that the Kingdom is witnessing in all sectors, especially the health sector, in a way that contributes to enhancing patient safety, raising the level of quality and providing the best medical services.
