Mubadala Healthcare's Healthpoint Launches Integrated Information System and Achieves Top Industry Recognition
 

UAE, July 2, 2018 - Mubadala Healthcare and Cerner, a global leader in health care technology, have collaborated to implement Cerner’s integrated electronic health record (EHR) at Mubadala Healthcare’s Healthpoint facility.

“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.”

“Sehati,” Arabic for myHealth, is the name given to the integrated clinical information system operating on Cerner Millennium® for use within Mubadala Healthcare’s facilities, which are Healthpoint, National Reference Laboratory, Wooridul Spine Center, Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi’s Anatomic Pathology Lab and other remote sites.

Cerner’s EHR is designed to support an individual’s health care journey across the continuum – from the doctor’s office to the hospital and outpatient clinics – with consistent patient engagement.

Implementing Cerner solutions will benefit Healthpoint’s clinicians and patients in several ways, including:

  • Documenting care, placing medication and other orders easily
  • Supporting high-quality care with the use of standardized treatment guidelines
  • Reducing the potential for transcription errors by having all care documented electronically, eliminating the possibility of errors due to illegible handwriting
  • Improving access to information with clinicians having near real-time access to patient details when needed with no time wasted searching or waiting

'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 ModelSM (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.”
