IBM has announced that Memon Medical Institute (MMI) in Karachi will implement IBM BladeCenter and IBM System Storage to store electronic medical records for the very first time to provide the availability of critical information and a manageable storage infrastructure in time for the hospitals grand opening next year. One of the Memon Medical Institutes goals is to provide a state of the art paperless IT infrastructure for its brand new 300-bed tertiary care teaching hospital. To be completed in March 2009 through the Memon Health & Education Foundation, the MMI aims to provide accessible and affordable quality healthcare and education in Karachi. The solution will provide automated hospital manage features such as electronic magnetic records of every patient. In addition to this, MMI will implement the IBM System Storage DS3400 for disk storage and plans to look into additional IBM information infrastructure solutions after the hospital opens. IBM Pakistan recently launched its Telemedicine project which is a leading public-private partnership to implement a high-technology telemedicine system in Pakistan. Telemedicine enables health care providers to deliver high quality medical services to patients care that would otherwise be lacking or absent in remote locations.
