More than 29,000 SC-contracted workers benefit from e-medical system

By QLNews

The Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC), the organization responsible for delivering tournament infrastructure for the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar, has announced that all of its contracted workers are now registered with an integrated electronic medical records system.

This is a first-of-its-kind healthcare initiative in Qatar, SC said. 

A leading UK electronic health records supplier, The Phoenix Partnership (TPP) has provided the SystmOne software for this initiative, which adopts a 'one patient, one record' approach.

Under the initiative, medical professionals in different locations can view workers' records so that their health can be monitored and managed more efficiently.

The software is also used to support the UK's National Health Service (NHS).

A total of 29,648 workers, across five stadium sites, have now been registered under the system, which was launched in February last year.

The e-system enables faster detection of health risks, identification of health trends and provides data for targeted health campaigns.

Patients also have access to their records, in Qatar and abroad via TPP's patient application, which enables workers to better understand and manage their health status, among other benefits.

All SC workers registered on the system are undergoing a comprehensive medical screening carried out by Qatar Red Crescent (QRC) and funded by SC.

The results form part of the centralized medical records, which can be accessed by clinics at the stadiums and accommodation sites, in addition to QRC-operated health centers.
