Bahrain Government Hospitals Sign Cooperation Agreement with the PowerHealth for Revenue Cycle Management
The Bahrain Government Hospitals have signed a cooperation agreement with PowerHealth to develop an integrated system to manage the revenue cycle of its government hospitals.
The Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Government Hospitals, Sheikh Hisham bin Abdulaziz Al Khalifa, said, "We are pleased to sign this agreement, which comes within the framework of the ongoing preparations to prepare government hospitals to deal with the requirements of the National Health Insurance Program, and to implement the strategy of self-management through the optimal utilisation of resources to achieve universal health coverage according to the highest levels of quality and efficiency."
For his part, the CEO of government hospitals, Dr. Ahmed Mohammed Al-Ansari, stressed that the system will contribute to the implementation of the strategy of autonomy by changing the financing system for government hospitals from an allocated budget to a competitive provider of medical services for the purpose of financing through health insurance claims.
Patrick Power from PowerHealth said “We are eager to support the Kingdom’s strategy which aims to enable healthcare provider autonomy and create integrated provider networks”.
