Orion Health invests in Philippines office, partners with TMC
New Zealand-owned global health software company Orion Health has opened an office in the Philippines that will become a
South East Asian hub as the company grows and invests in the region.
The office will add to Orion Health’s 27 other offices around the world and 1,100 global staff members. The company’s
health software products are used in more than 30 countries by hundreds of thousands of clinicians to facilitate care
for tens of millions of patients.
Orion Health CEO Ian McCrae says the office in the capital Manila will initially have up to 20 staff but the company
plans to grow this over the next 12-18 months as it builds aspects of its implementation and customer service operations
in the Philippines.
Mr McCrae said the office will also support Orion Health’s new partnership with The Medical City (TMC), a world class
tertiary care hospital and healthcare complex with 1,000 physicians and 2,200 staff serving some 40,000 in-patients and
400,000 out-patients annually.
TMC has bought Orion Health’s Enterprise Electronic Health Record system. Orion Health’s solution will provide a unified
view of patient data across the healthcare organisation via an easy-to-use web-based interface that is accessible
anywhere, anytime. Its implementation will help to reduce medical errors, increase medical staff efficiency and reduce
Mr McCrae said Orion Health’s and TMC’s visions are aligned. “TMC’s vision is all about working in partnership with the
patient, and we are also focussed on patient-centric care.
TMC is the premier Philippine health institution and our goal is a long lasting partnership with them that will enable
us to provide better software to other healthcare organisations in South East Asia.”
At the heart of TMC's service philosophy are new paradigms of hospital care addressing the entire continuum of health
needs, and treating the patient as an equal, informed and empowered partner.
TMC is accredited by the Joint Commission International (JCI), the world’s most prestigious accrediting body for
international health care organisations. Besides its Philippines base, TMC has hospitals and clinics in Dubai and Guam.
Orion Health and TMC officially signed an agreement for their partnership today which was attended by a ministerial
delegation to the Philippines led by New Zealand Minister of Trade Tim Groser.
