Cerner brings future of healthcare to Arab Health
Dubai, January 18, 2012
Cerner, an international health care information technology corporation, will showcase cutting-edge health IT solutions for various aspects of health care at the upcoming Arab Health Congress 2012 in Dubai.
Now in its 37th year, Arab Health Congress, to be held from January 23 to 26, will attract more than 71,900 health care professionals over four days and host over 3,000 exhibiting companies from around the world.
According to Cerner, the Middle East health care industry has shown record growth over the past few years and is expected to continue growing in the future for reasons that include increasing population and rising prevalence of lifestyle diseases.
This has led to a boost in the demand for better health care services. As a result, an estimated $10 billion worth of health care projects are planned or underway in the GCC.
Additionally, the demand for hospital beds is expected to rise to almost 94,000 in 2015, an increase of more than 8,600 beds from 2010.
Cerner said it will discuss ways health care systems can effectively manage this increased demand for high-quality health care services during Arab Health.
Cerner will also demonstrate cutting-edge health IT solutions for various aspects of health care, including women’s health, emergency department, critical care and strategic change management, surgery/anesthesia and Lighthouse.
In addition, a Cerner Smart Room will be available at the booth to demonstrate workflow software that focuses on enhancing consumer care and clinician efficiency.
As a silver sponsor for the Electronic Healthcare Records (EHR) forum, Cerner will present a special session on the importance of strategic partnership in the future of EHRs from a clinician’s viewpoint.
The Cerner Millennium architecture allows for an integrated approach to health and care so that different care settings are joined together to treat the patient throughout the care pathway in order to deliver better outcomes.
“We are always delighted to be part of Arab Health as it provides an excellent platform for us to engage with key stakeholders in the health care sector in the region,” said Greg White, vice president and managing director, Cerner Middle East and Africa.
“We will focus on our advanced health care solutions and services portfolio that cater to the growing demands of building a more robust, integrated and automated health system to increase patient, staff and physician satisfactions,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
