To support the initiatives of developing local talent in the region and the nationalization programs in the Middle East, Cerner Middle East & Africa today announced the launch of the Cerner Masouliya (meaning “responsibility” in Arabic) program in the Middle East.

This program is designed to provide nationals in the region with knowledge in health care and information technology, as well as to develop skills to help their respective health care organizations transform the medical system in their country.

Masouliya is aligned with the initiatives of multiple governments in the Middle East to increase the skills and employment opportunities for nationals and to prepare them to deal with operational and strategic decisions across the private and public sectors.

“We’re proud to help develop the talents of local individuals who want to improve health care in their countries and become future leaders,” said Michael Pomerance, vice president and general manager of Cerner Middle East & Africa. “Cerner Middle East will provide training and experience for various projects, depending on the participant’s area of expertise and future career aspirations in the public or private sectors.”

The program began April 2 with three trainees from Children’s Cancer Hospital Egypt.

“The Masouliya program provides trainees an opportunity to gain valuable informatics knowledge that are in high demand and important for their organization’s ability to manage and support their health care IT system,” said Karim Abd Elhay, strategic business executive, Cerner Middle East.

Upon completion of the program, participants will have obtained knowledge and expertise to help them and their sponsoring organization continue to improve health care across the Middle East.

“Our relationship with Cerner has been much more than a vendor/client relationship. Masouliya program reflects the partnership spirit between Children’s Cancer Hospital and Cerner,” said Dr. Sherif Abouelnaga, CEO, Children’s Cancer Hospital Foundation 57357 Group - Egypt.
