Cerner expands service offering with new office in Dubai

Cerner : 12 June, 2007  (New Product)
A new Dubai office has been opened by Cerner to supplement the company’s Solutions centre in Abu Dhabi in a move to expand the company's healthcare IT presence in the Middle East and North Africa region.
The move comes as Cerner seeks to strengthen relationships with key Middle Eastern clients and improve value chain integration with key regional suppliers and partners.

'The Middle East is a high potential, rapidly growing market for healthcare, with increasing public and private sector investment to improve healthcare delivery', noted Dr Doug Krebs, president Cerner Global.

'For instance, the UAE and Saudi governments sponsor up to 75 percent of all health sector investment in their respective countries, while 2007 figures indicate Lebanon allocating over 10 percent of GDP to expenditure in the sector'.

'Cerner's end to end solutions, service portfolios and proven market leadership in healthcare IT have generated substantial interest, leading us to enlarge our presence in the region'.

Cerner offers end to end solutions and service portfolios for hospitals and health systems, physician practice, life science, community and personal health, and home care.

The company also offers learning services and provides a full spectrum of learning solutions for an extensive curriculum of courses.

In 2005, the company signed an agreement with Abu Dhabi's General Authority and Health Services (GAHS), and followed up by partnering with King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Center Phase II in 2006.

'Dubai is one of the leading regional business centres selected by major organizations, with transparent rules and regulations facilitating an open business environment.

Cerner is committed to a customer-centric ethos, and being based in Dubai will allow us to provide world class support to our many regional clients', Dr Doug Krebs added.

With more than 7,500 associates worldwide, including 900 clinicians, Cerner has deployed nearly 6,400 Cerner Millennium solutions in more than 1,100 facilities in across the globe.
