Dubai: American Hospital Dubai has selected Oracle Cloud Applications and Cerner, a member of Oracle Partner Network, for its digital upgrade.

The initiative is aimed at reducing cost, optimising physician performance, driving better inventory management, avoiding losses to over- or under-stocking, and hiring and retaining talent.

The new EHR and ERP platforms will provide the healthcare provider with the ability to automate its end-to-end clinical and business processes. “Our partnership with Cerner and Oracle significantly improves our clinical and non-clinical services,” said Sherif Beshara, CE of Mohamed & Obaid Al Mulla Group and which owns American Hospital Dubai.

“We are consistently seeking intelligent methods to improve quality of care and to enhance the patients’ experience.”

As per the agreement, Cerner will deliver a new health IT platform – an electronic health record (EHR) to improve the safety, quality, and healthcare experience for patients and caregivers. In addition, Oracle will provide the digital business platform and Enterprise Resource Planning Cloud.
