Cerner Middle East exhibits state-of-the-art IT healthcare solutions at Arab Health Congress 2014
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, January 19, 2014: Cerner Middle East, health care information technology (HIT) solution provider is set to demonstrate its broad portfolio of healthcare solutions at Arab Health 2014, the 39th edition of the largest healthcare exhibition and congress in the Middle East and Asia, January 27 to 30, 2014 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Center.
The timeliness of the event complements the current vibrancy of the Middle East region’s healthcare industry in general and the UAE segment in particular. In fact, a recent study made by RNCOS forecasts that the UAE’s healthcare industry is poised to grow by 16 per cent in 2014, or an equivalent of USD 14.6 million.
The study further reveals that the UAE’s per capita healthcare spending--which is the second highest among GCC nations—is also expected to grow by five per cent next year. Looking to play a major role in this predicted growth; Cerner will feature its exclusive range of IT solutions for health care services during the four-day exhibition, which include:
- PowerChart Oncology, a solution that collects and integrates clinical information to support the specific needs of oncology care;
- PowerChart Maternity, a system that creates a single maternity care reference point allowing obstetrical nurses in the acute setting to document and access real-time data at the point of care to enhance clinical decision-making;
- Capacity Management, Registration and Scheduling, enables tracking, managing, and optimizing the flow and alignment of people and resources throughout a health care organization.
- CareCompass – manages all patient care from documentation to closed loop medication administration in the care environment;
- Care Admin, a solution that ensures positive patient identification and safe administration of medication;
- Executive Dashboard, a real time dashboard as well as a patient flow solution that includes discharge, staffing and clinical outcomes from admission to transition to the next level of care;
- Emergency Medicine Solutions, for helping the emergency department provide safe care efficiently;
- PowerChart Touch™, a mobile solution that enables physicians to perform workflows from mobile devices like Apple’s iPad.
