Jan 06, 2011 (LBO) - Sri Lanka's E-Channelling, a listed dotcom that enables patients to make appointments with doctors over the internet, has struck a deal to enter the Maldives and a wider market with Qatar Telecom, a statement said.
E-Channelling has entered into an agreement with Wataniya Telecom Maldives, owned by Qatar Telecom (QTel) as part of its global expansion programme, it said.

The deal is to provide software services to automate medical 'channelling' services in the Maldives and is E-Channelling's first international project.

"QTel has given an undertaking that after completion of the project in the Maldives they would look into replicating the software solutions in all other 17 countries jointly with ECL," the statement said.

The four-phase project will first make available 'e-channeling' services to Maldivians to consult Sri Lankan doctors and get health check-ups and other medical services in 25 partner hospitals in Sri Lanka.

It will also make available e-channelling software to consult Maldivian doctors in Maldivian hospitals and medical centres.

In the third phase, it will revamp a Wataniya Telecom data centre to provide hosted software services to the Maldivian medical industry.

The final phase is to set up a telemedicine help-line in the Maldives to provide basic medical advice to the islands and resorts, the statement said.

Wataniya Telecom is owned by Qatar Telecom (QTel) which has 58 million subscribers in 17 countries in Asia, the Middle East and North Africa
