COMPANY: Pure Health

CHALLENGE: Support the United Arab Emirates’ (UAE’s) testing initiatives for COVID-19.

OUTCOME: TrakCare Lab Enterprise system enabled Pure Health to streamline testing workflows and make data easily accessible from all parties, thereby accelerating testing for COVID-19 in the UAE.

From Nasser Saleh, InterSystems Middle East

InterSystems partnered with Pure Health, the largest laboratory operator in the Gulf Cooperation Council, to deploy the InterSystems TrakCare Lab Enterprise system to support the United Arab Emirates’ (UAE’s) testing initiatives for COVID-19. Pure Health is a pioneering healthcare solutions provider and the largest laboratory network in the entire Gulf region, with 115 labs and 750 healthcare professionals employed across the UAE.

Under this initiative, the TrakCare Lab Enterprise system was implemented in a record two weeks’ time to enable Pure Health to streamline testing workflows and make data easily accessible from all parties, thereby accelerating testing for COVID-19 in the UAE. Pure Health has two dedicated COVID-19 testing laboratories in the emirates of Abu Dhabi and Sharjah and is opening an additional laboratory in Dubai soon. With this, the organization will have the largest COVID-19 testing capability in the Middle East, with the capacity to perform 25,000 tests daily.

Pure Health has been collaborating with healthcare providers and authorities in this screening initiative across the UAE and conducted COVID-19 tests at more than 15 collection centers and two processing locations. It will soon increase capacity to 75,000 daily COVID-19 tests. As of April 7, the UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention had conducted 593,095 screenings for the coronavirus, out of which 259,000 tests were performed by Pure Health. This puts the UAE’s efforts at around 60,000 tests per 1 million people — one of the highest testing density standards in the world.

Conducting a high volume of COVID-19 PCR (polymerase chain reaction) tests daily is instrumental in combating the COVID-19 pandemic, and TrakCare Lab Enterprise can manage tens of thousands of PCR tests daily. This high-throughput processing capability helps accelerate the diagnosis and identification of suspected COVID-19 cases, the release of recovered patients, and the screening of close contacts and high-risk groups.

Healthcare Providers
Surprisingly, the top three indicators of life expectancy in the U.S. for a given population are per capita nursing home residency, mental health challenges, and prevalence of tooth loss¹. The income level, access to care, stress, and other social factors behind these indicators have a greater impact on health than genetics or access to healthcare services². However, historically, social determinants of health have not received enough attention in clinical care.
Integration Across the Delivery Network (IDN)
The developers at this large U.S. integrated delivery network (IDN) have no patience for integration engines that mindlessly do one job and one job only. Since replacing an old engine with InterSystems integration technology over a decade ago, the IDN has seen InterSystems solutions solve multiple problems to power growth, save employee time, and reduce costs. In one project alone, InterSystems saved them $100,000. Other examples of benefits delivered using InterSystems integration technology include:
As healthcare payers and providers use different information systems, patients can get caught in the middle and forced to bridge the gap with cumbersome processes.
