EBH empowers lab with PathNet solution
Jeddah, September 22, 2008
Dr Erfan-Bagedo General Hospital (EBH) said it recently implemented the Cerner Millennium PathNet solution.
The cutomizable solution involves automating the managerial and operational aspects of the hospital's laboratory to provide faster, more accurate lab services for more than one million patients it serves each year.
'As healthcare information technology continues to advance, so do opportunities to provide better, safer care to our patients,' said Dr Mohamed Ahmed Erfan, EBH chief executive officer. 'By implementing the Cerner Millennium PathNet solution at our hospital, we will be able to improve safety and efficiency in the laboratory.'
EBH will use the Cerner Millennium PathNet solution to streamline specimen management, track specimens and maintain quality control within the hospital laboratory. The PathNet solution is connected to the hospital information system, which gives caregivers real-time access to important laboratory data.
'Dr Erfan-Bagedo General Hospital's commitment to implementing advanced healthcare information technology has helped it become one of the leading private-sector hospitals in Saudi Arabia,” said Trace Devanny, Cerner president. “We commend the hospital leadership for continuing to advance the standard of care for the region and for providing world-class care to its patients.' - TradeArabia News Service
