According to Anil Nair, CEO – IRIS Health Services, Insurance technologies are “where the present meets the future”. He adds, “At the micro-level, the best insure-tech solutions improve access to care and ensure quality, value-based care and wellbeing for Omani residents; at the macro-level, these advances and the associated benefits will boost confidence in and strengthen the nation’s health insurance sector.”

The digital solutions include electronic health cards, real-time eligibility checks, e-pharmacy lists and a Physicians Support Tool, benefiting everyone involved in the health insurance ecosystem from consumers to insurance companies to regulators and providers.

The Physicians Support Tool and training is currently being provided for free by IRIS as a goodwill gesture on its part. The tool is effective in allowing physicians to code diagnoses according to World Health Organization and other international standards at the touch of a button without the need for specialist coders or knowledge, the release stated.
