Seha inks 7-year agreement with Cerner
Abu Dhabi, May 12, 2010
The Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (Seha) and Cerner have extended their partnership with a seven year agreement to automate and optimise healthcare in Abu Dhabi.
As a result of successfully implementing Cerner’s solutions at five Seha hospitals, 12 ambulatory healthcare clinics and multiple primary healthcare clinics, Seha and Cerner have expanded their agreement to include the option to implement all Cerner solutions offered in the UAE across all Seha Business Entities that make up the Seha HealthSystem.
Seha manages the curative activities of the public hospitals and clinics in the emirate. The new solution options expand upon Seha’s initial deal with Cerner signed in 2005 to deliver a suite of 15 solutions to four hospitals.
Cerner provides fully integrated health information technology (HIT) solutions to more than twenty hospitals in the UAE.
Cerner Millennium solutions are improving care for patients served in the Seha HealthSystem in a number of ways:
• Ensuring medication safety
• Reducing medical errors
• Improving access to information
“Our continued partnership with Cerner will help healthcare professionals further elevate safety, quality and efficiency for the more than five million patients that visit Seha hospitals each year,” said Carl V Stanifer, Seha chairman.
“We are proud at Cerner of our partnership with Seha and what we have accomplished together to create a better experience for Seha patients,” added Richard Berner, Cerner Middle East vice president and general manager.-TradeArabia News Service
