Egyptian Children’s Cancer Hospital Foundation selects Cerner to become its healthcare information technology provider

Cerner : 29 February, 2008  (New Product)
The Children’s Cancer Hospital Foundation 57357 (CCHF) in Egypt has selected Cerner as the healthcare information technology (HIT) provider for Children’s Cancer Hospital Egypt 57357.
The hospital will use multiple Cerner Millennium solutions to help clinicians provide state-of-the-art care for an estimated 1,500 paediatric cancer patients each year. The implementation is part of Cerner’s growing worldwide business, which now includes clients on five continents and a global presence in more than 20 countries.

“Children’s Cancer Hospital Egypt 57357 is focused on meeting the unique needs of each child and leveraging medical findings to help children in the whole community,” said Dr Sherif Abouelnaga, Children’s Cancer Hospital Egypt 57357 professor of paediatric oncology and vice president of Academic Affairs, Research and Outreach. “We have partnered with Cerner to implement technology that will help us ensure safety and reliability in the delicate process of caring for paediatric cancer patients.”

CCHF was founded with a mission to care for paediatric cancer patients free of charge regardless of race, creed or financial status. The Foundation, which is funded by donations from the people of Egypt and philanthropists from around the globe, began building the region’s first paediatric oncology hospital in one of Cairo’s oldest suburbs in 2001. The hospital opened select areas in July 2007, treating more than 500 patients in its first four months of operation. A full grand opening is scheduled for the end of 2008/early 2009.

When complete, Children’s Cancer Hospital Egypt 57357 will use a complementary suite of Cerner Millennium solutions to create a unified, patient-centric health record throughout the various hospital venues.

Hospital administrators said they chose Cerner because they believe Cerner is best positioned to help them achieve their mission of delivering the highest-quality care possible to children. The solutions will be used to automate nursing communication, intensive care unit operations, clinician documentation, image management, pharmacy and laboratory operations, medication administration processes, patient accounting and surgery operations. Children’s Cancer Hospital Egypt 57357 will also use Cerner Knowledge solutions to provide clinicians with access to knowledge-based, patient specific information.

“Our relationship with CCHF will help to link the findings from research and education by leveraging evidence-based care to transform clinical practice,” said Amr Mostafa, Cerner Middle East director. “Cerner has the solutions to help the CCHF create a hospital that utilises leading-edge technology to provide clinicians with timely and easy access to information that is critical to patient care.”

By selecting Cerner, Children’s Cancer Hospital Egypt 57357 chose a supplier with a proven track record. Cerner has more than 7,500 Cerner Millennium solutions live at more than 1,200 client facilities around the world. Cerner technology helps healthcare organizations ranging in size from independent physicians to nationwide healthcare organizations streamline operations and improve the quality of care they deliver to patients.

As part of the Cerner Millennium implementation, the hospital also will implement ElDorado Donor software from Global Med Technologies, an international e-Health, medical information technology company and parent of Wyndgate Technologies.

ElDorado Donor (510(k) pending, not for sale in the United States) is a comprehensive blood-management software application designed to manage, automate and control activities associated with donors, donor collections, testing, manufacturing, inventory and distribution of blood components in blood banks and donor centres.
