Mubadala Healthpoint upgrades HIS from Cerner
Mubadala Healthpoint hospital has upgraded its healthcare information systems
Mubadala Healthcare has deployed integrated electronic health record (EHR) systems from Cerner to benefit clinical staff and patients.
The healthcare group, part of Abu Dhabi's Mubadala investment vehicle, has developed its ‘Sehati' healthcare information systems based on Cerner's Millennium solution.
The group's Healthpoint integrated care hospital has become one of the first in the region to upgrade to the latest version of Cerner's software.
"We are pleased to be one of the first hospitals in the Middle East to upgrade our health information system with the latest Cerner software," said Dr Jose Lopez, CEO, Healthpoint Abu Dhabi. "Our patients will benefit from a seamless experience that starts with their arrival at the check-in desk. The new software will help us access the right information at the right time and supports our physicians in making the appropriate decisions for our patients. Cerner will empower us to provide our community with the health care services they deserve."
"Cerner is honored to collaborate with Healthpoint to mark a new transformation in the delivery of advanced health care services in Abu Dhabi. This collaboration is a strategic fit to Cerner's long-term presence in the Middle East region and United Arab Emirates," said Michael Schelper, general manager - UAE & Kuwait, Cerner Middle East and Africa. "We look forward to continue working together and planning with the Healthpoint team to achieve their vision."
In addition, Healthpoint achieved Stage 6 of the Electronic Medical Record Adoption Model (EMRAM) from Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Analytics. The HIMSS Analytics EMRAM Stage 6 award was presented to the hospital during the EMRAM Awards Ceremony that was held at the 2017 annual HIMSS UAE eHealth Week in Dubai.
"Healthpoint is also a HIMSS EMRAM Stage 6 certified hospital and with these new enhancements, the hospital looks forward to achieving HIMSS Stage 7 soon," said Dr. Jose Lopez. "By collaborating with Cerner, Healthpoint aims to achieve the UAE Vision 2021 of providing patients with a world-class health care system and stimulate the overall development of the sector in the UAE."
