Allscripts wins first client in Qatar

Allscripts has won its first client in Qatar to provide first-of-its-kind ambulatory care services.

Alfardan Group, one of the leading family-owned conglomerates in Qatar and Chicago-based Northwestern Medicine have selected Allscripts to provide ambulatory care services for the launch of its new project, Alfardan Medical with Northwestern Medicine.

As part of the project Allscripts will be delivering their Sunrise platform, a fully integrated electronic health record that connects all aspects of care, including ambulatory, surgical, radiology, and laboratory services.

Omar Hussain Alfardan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Alfardan Group “Alfardan Group has built its reputation on offering our clients a lifestyle in keeping with the quality and premium services that they value. We believe Allscripts is the suitable partner to help us deliver world-class integrated healthcare to Qatar.”

Richard Strong, Allscripts vice president and managing director EMEA, said: “This is the first deal to be secured by our EMEA team, since we announced that we would be strengthening our focus on Europe, the Middle East and Africa.”

“Alfardan Medical with Northwestern will use many elements of our Sunrise suite of leading healthcare technology products, as well as processes and methodology developed in the UK. At the same time, the deal will enable us as a company to invest in growth and capability across the wider EMEA region.”
