Promoting Healthcare Through Progress
Efficient management of large-scale medical systems requires technological advancement. Therefore, Maccabi invests significant resources in the acquisition of both innovative managerial systems which promote its medical and administrative organization, and advanced medical equipment and apparatus based on digital technology, magnetic resonance and ultra-sound. Alongside its computerization and logistics system, which supports immediate updating of information in a member's medical record, Maccabi Healthcare Services is also assisted by the Amos Satellite, which provides an up to date picture of the types and dosages of medications used by each individual member.
Computerization and Information Systems
To maintain effective management of the medical and administrative systems, Maccabi operates a technologically advanced computer unit and sophisticated database, which automatically updates the medical records of all members in real time.
The information stored in a central computer, constitutes an integrated database which provides a comprehensive and detailed picture of the medical and pharmacological history of each and every Maccabi member. When contacting any Maccabi-associated physician or during hospitalization, the availability of members' medical records ensures rapid and effective medical treatment.
Through our secured internet site, Maccabi members are able to review their medical records, access medical information and receive intelligent individual medical feedback. These computer-based tools save members unnecessary trips to Maccabi offices and allow members to perform numerous online activities from their homes, including appointments, purchase of travel insurance or modifying personal details. The computerized system also supports automatic billing through members' bank accounts.
