CompuGroup Medical Strengthens Presence in the Middle East

June 6, 2013: CompuGroup Medical (CGM) Turkey will provide know-how and IT-systems for health fund management in Yemen in the future. Within the scope of the newly established cooperation with the renowned Yemeni insurance company, “AL-Watania Insurance”, consultancy services to improve patient treatment and customer management were contractually determined in May. The collaboration strengthens CompuGroup Medical’s presence as one of the world’s leading eHealth companies.

CGM Turkey is assisting AL-Watania Insurance in establishing a TPA company (Third Party Administration) and is advising in the planning of departments, processes and necessary infrastructures. For the management of health funds, the “CGM Claimer ECP Software” will be provided for use. These services are already used by 55 private insurances, health funds and pension funds for the management of 750,000 insured customers.

In addition to providing software, CGM Turkey is advising its new partner in the training of physicians and employees. There is a focus on questions regarding primary care and prevention: How can the physician encourage patients to be more proactive about their health? How can health risks in the workplace be minimized? “We are very excited about this collaboration and opportunity to contribute our long-standing experience and provide our intelligent products for the well-being of Yemeni patients. It is of the utmost importance for us that care providers and patients worldwide benefit from our innovations“, as stated by Frank Gotthardt, CEO of CompuGroup Medical AG.

The cooperation agreement was signed by Yousef Abdul Wadood Saed, Chairmen and CEO of AL-Watania Insurance, and Gülsultan Doğan, Deputy Managing Director of CompuGroup Medical Turkey, on May 21st, 2013 in the capitol city of Sanaa. Since 1993, AL-Watania Insurance has been one of the most prestigious insurance providers in Yemen. The corporation offers, amongst others, both health and life insurances to its customers.
