  • Orange Healthcare

    Orange healthcare helps professionals to work together and interact in new ways, by allowing them to seamlessly access medical information when they need to. They can help health providers relieve pressure on staff and resources, focus on education and prevention rather than reactive treatment, and make life better for patients and health professionals alike. This leads to better decisions, increased efficiency and a higher quality of care.

    Orange has worked with healthcare partners to improve the accessibility and integration of medical data for many years. They are expanding their services across many sectors and territories, to help increase the efficiency of and access to healthcare systems around the world. They operate in 21 countries and serves over 60 million mobile clients in Africa and Middle East. 

    In a global context in which the prevalence of chronic illnesses is increasing, medical demographics are becoming geographically unbalanced and costs need to be contained, eHealth can be seen as a real opportunity both to rationalise the healthcare system and make it more efficient, but also for certain countries to develop access to healthcare and medical information for their populations.

    For health professionals this means accessing patient information wherever they are, and sharing it with colleagues whenever they need to. For patients it means the flexibility to make more of their own choices and the freedom to be cared for at home, still knowing help is at hand if they need it. 

    And for the system as a whole it means coordinating things better to focus more on prevention than cure, and to lower costs while raising quality.
