The joint cooperation aims to strengthen the working relationship between the SCH and Batelco, with the aim of carrying out health-related projects.
Under this agreement, Batelco will contribute US$2254030 to support the kingdom’s health sector initiative, as well as connect the health authorities with the National Health Insurance Programme. Additionally, Batelco will support the SCH in the planning process.
Commenting on this agreement, Batelco chairman Shaikh Abdulla bin Khalifa Al Khalifa said, “Batelco aims to bring the latest technologies to the Kingdom’s health sector and it is our national and social duty. Our partnership with the Supreme Council of Health has provided us with this opportunity and Batelco will focus its efforts on providing the required support to uplift and enhance the Kingdom’s health sector.”
Batelco will also work closely with the Supreme Council of Health to develop a system in which hospital and health centre records are connected, allowing patients’ flexibility on choosing a hospital or health centre within the National Health Insurance Programme.
Batelco will also contribute by offering solutions that link medical files and systems between the Kingdom’s various health centres and hospitals, which will support the health sector in revolutionizing the sector through better utilizing the available resources while overcoming pressing challenges.
