Qatar University to use Cerner solution
Doha, April 29, 2008
Qatar University will use the Cerner Academic Education Solution (AES) to teach students how to work with an Electronic Medical Record (EMR).
This tool allows students to learn in an environment that mirrors the automated point-of-care setting in which they will one day work. Qatar University is Cerner’s first client in Qatar, the university said in a statement.
“The mission of the pharmacy school is to prepare our students to provide optimal pharmaceutical care and to advance the science of pharmacy for Qatar, the Middle East and the world,” said Qatar University Pharmacy Programme professor and director Dr Peter J Jewesson.
“The Cerner Academic Education Solution will help our students embrace healthcare information technology as part of their education and make it easier for them to transition from an academic to a professional setting,” he said.
The Cerner AES is the only full clinical information system adapted to support healthcare curricula and classroom instruction.
This solution can be used in academic programs that teach nursing, medicine, pharmacy, physical therapy, occupational therapy and health information management.
The Cerner AES supports instructors in the development of data-driven teaching cases for online presentation and instruction, supported by evidence and clinical outcomes.
HealthCare Education Institutions can use the Cerner AES to simulate patient scenarios through case studies to support curricula objectives, teaching and learning.
“The Cerner AES is the result of collaboration between Cerner and educational institutions that recognize the value of embedding healthcare information technology and clinical informatics throughout the curricula to better prepare students to be successful in automated healthcare environments,” said Cerner president Trace Devanny.
“Cerner and Qatar University are working together to transform healthcare in Qatar, by closing the gap between what is learned in the University and what is practiced in professional settings,” said Devanny. – TradeArabia News Service
