New Zealand healthcare technology company Orion Health has secured two new strategic deals in Vietnam, which will build its momentum and market presence in the rapidly developing Southeast Asia region.
Orion Health has been selected to provide its Enterprise software solution to Vietnam’s Vinmec International Hospital, a premium healthcare provider headquartered in Hanoi.
Terms of the deal will see Vinmec utilise Orion Health software to improve the delivery and quality of care by implementing a single, integrated multi-site interface that will enable a single view of the patient record across all of their sites.
Initially this technology will be deployed in Vinmec Hanoi, Vinmec Phu Quoc, Vinmec Central Park and in two clinics; Vinmec Royal City, Vinmec Saigon.
This deployment will be closely followed by a further six sites - supporting the group’s bid for accreditation by the Joint Commission International (JCI) recognising their commitment to safety and quality.
“Vinmec receives a large number of patients annually who are medical tourists drawn by the premium healthcare and world-class services we provide,” says Nguyen Thanh Liem, CEO, Vinmec International Hospital.
“The quality of the care that they receive is our measure of success, and our partnership with Orion Health will enable us to offer an integrated system for storing and retrieving the medical records of our patients.
“We look forward to more opportunities to improve the delivery and quality of healthcare services through this collaboration with Orion Health.”
The win continues a trend for Orion Health in signing prestigious private hospital organisations throughout Southeast Asia, by providing integrated software solutions that help support their efforts at improving efficiency and effectiveness of care delivery.
“Orion Health is committed to making a difference in the delivery of healthcare for patients across the Southeast Asian region by making it easier for records to be accessed and shared across multi-site organisations,” adds Ian McCrae, CEO, Orion Health.
“As the first international general hospital in Hanoi to receive these solutions, we are honoured to partner with Vinmec to streamline processes and to bring advanced healthcare solutions to patients from Vietnam and the region.”
Complementing this significant new customer win, Orion Health has also signed a strategic partnership with VIT Corporation to improve hospital efficiency and enhance the quality of healthcare across several Vietnamese provinces.
According to McCrae, VIT Corporation enjoys a “stellar local reputation” combined with a long and successful history of IT outsourcing, which complements the innovative and world leading solutions that Orion Health offer.

Senior Vice President for Asia Pacific, Darren Jones, believes this strategic agreement is pivotal for Orion Health to enjoy long-term success in Vietnam.
“We see huge potential for our integrated hospital solutions throughout Vietnam and we will be actively pursuing a number of new opportunities throughout FY16,” he says.
“This partnership with VIT Corporation will help us to strengthen our market presence and provide us with a number of additional relationships and opportunities that would have taken us years to generate on our own.”
Orion Health and VIT Corporation have confirmed the pilot delivery of eHealth solutions to hospitals in the public sector will begin in Khanh Hoa province, with this partnership expected to expand across Vietnam in the coming years.
