- PRESS RELEASE
The Middle East health care sector is expected to be worth $60bn by 2025 as the need for investment in facilities and services continues to escalate. The region is considered to have a high population of diabetes, obesity cardio-vascular diseases, and increasing cancer diseases, which have led to an increase in the demand for better health care services in the region.
Cerner, a developer of information management systems geared towards health care, is an Associate Sponsor and will moderate the panel discussion on how provider systems and technology companies are responding to the implementation of Electronic Health Records (EHR) Systems during the Second Annual World Health Care Congress Middle East taking place from December 11-13, 2011 in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
The session will bring together the industry's thought leaders in the region including:
- Mohammed R. Al Yemeni, PhD, Advisor to the Minister of Health & General Supervisor of ICT, Ministry of Health, Saudi Arabia
- Robert J. Pickton, MBA, Chief Information Officer, Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA), United Arab Emirates
- Arvind P. Kumar, Senior Vice President, Information Solutions, Harvard Medical Institutions, USA

"The Middle East health care market has a strong vision for the future," said Greg White, vice president and managing director, Cerner Middle East and Africa. "We believe that in the near future, hospitals will need to spend more funds and resources on building powerful health IT systems including electronic health records and mobile health solutions that will provide real-time access to patient information, reduce medical errors and enhance patient safety."
