Sidra Medical and Research Center Selects Expesite and CAPPstone CAFM Software in Qatar

COLUMBUS, OH and LONDON, ON--(Marketwire - Oct 4, 2012) - Expesite and CAPPstone are excited to announce they have been selected by Dell Services  (Dell) to implement a computer aided facilities management (CAFM) solution for Sidra Medical and Research Center (Sidra), a world-class clinical care, medical education, and biomedical research facility in Qatar. Dell is the Prime Source Vendor and IT Proxy Project Manager for Sidra, and CAPPstone will be implementing the VisionFM +HEALTHCARE solution developed by Expesite.

Expesite's integrated facility management solution for healthcare, VisionFM +HEALTHCARE, will enable Sidra to efficiently manage the scheduled and on-demand requirements of all facility and biomedical assets, sustain long term capital planning and provide a spatial database in support of environmental service workload management, move management, and redevelopment project decision making.

Dell Services will integrate the Expesite VisionFM +HEALTHCARE solution, encompassing space, facility asset, biomedical asset, maintenance, and environmental services management functions to support hospital staff in providing world-class facility management services in support of patient care and research.

"Integrated databases and workflow processes are key components of our solution to creating a well-managed facility where technologists are empowered to provide the highest possible level of service in support of patient care," said Chris Dodds, Senior Vice President at Expesite. "CAPPstone's experience in the implementation of healthcare facility management solutions and the quality of the Expesite VisionFM +HEALTHCARE solution will enable Sidra Medical and Research Center to apply a world class standard of facility management to their patient care, medical education, and biomedical research facilities in line with Sidra's mission to provide truly world-class healthcare services for its patients."

Expesite VisionFM +HEALTHCARE provides instant web access to facility information and enables multiple corporate support departments to selectively access and use common facility information. The solution supports lease management, environmental services quality control, personnel asset management, staff productivity, and workload balancing.

"Sidra Medical and Research Center offers CAPPstone and Expesite a unique opportunity to work with Dell Services to implement Expesite VisionFM +HEALTHCARE in Qatar," said Steve Ries, Vice President CAPPstone. "We look forward to implementing this advanced facility management system to assist Sidra in achieving its vision for this flagship academic medical center."

First announced in June 2004, Sidra represents the vision of Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser and aims to position Qatar as a leader in biomedical research, academic medical training, and healthcare in the Middle East. Sidra, the first academic medical center in the region dedicated to women's and children's healthcare, is being built at Qatar Foundation's 2,500-acre Education City campus. Advisory support in the ongoing planning of Sidra's mission and specific facilities has been supplied by Weill Cornell Medical College (WCMC) and its partner New York -- Presbyterian Hospital (NYPH). Initially, Sidra will have around 400 beds available when it opens, with built infrastructure to enable expansion to 550 beds in a subsequent phase.
