King’s College Hospital London Selects Cerner’s Clinical and Financial Management System

Future King’s hospital in Dubai to implement Cerner’s integrated health IT platform

UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, Dubai, Jan. 31, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, one of London’s largest and busiest teaching hospitals, has selected Cerner, a global leader in health care technology, to integrate a networkwide health IT system at its coming Dubai-based hospital, King’s College Hospital Dubai. This hospital is a joint venture with Al Tayer Group, Dubai Investments and UK-based Ashmore Group Plc. The announcement was made at the Arab Health Exhibition and Congress, the Middle East’s largest health care trade show.

Following the announcement, Dr. Simon Fraser, medical director, King’s College Hospital London, Dubai, explained: “The UAE is home to a very diverse population, and we adopt a holistic approach for all patients, irrespective of background and lifestyle. Disease management and prevention are no longer secondary to diagnosis and treatment.”

King’s Dubai’s implementation of Cerner technology will aid in the automation of care venues and moving toward a paperless environment, initiatives that support the UAE Vision 2021 National Agenda, a national program developed to advance national priorities and achieve a world-class health care system.

The Cerner Millennium® electronic health record (EHR) will be implemented across King’s Dubai, a 100-bed, multi-specialty hospital set to open in 2018 at the heart of the premium community, Dubai Hills Estate, and two multi-specialty clinics. The 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, through an online patient portal.

Simon added, “Using Cerner Millennium, King’s doctors will have access to investigate the patient’s predisposing factors within their respective clinical fields. This will help doctors treat and follow each patient in a unique way, facilitating preventive medicine.”

Millennium Revenue Cycle™, Cerner’s portfolio of financial management solutions designed to optimize provider and user workflow, will also be implemented with the enterprisewide EHR. This integration will result in a Clinically Driven Revenue Cycle, which is designed to provide clinicians and staff with the resources to update the billing process throughout the patient’s visit, enhance clinical documentation to help improve reimbursement and limit claims errors. King’s Dubai will have a single source of truth for patients’ financial liability, which will benefit patients with a streamlined experience.

“The UAE’s 2021 vision encourages its population to lead healthier lives by creating a culture of proactive health management. The networkwide EHR will help King’s Dubai create a patient-centric health care delivery system and engage individuals across the region,” said Ali Slimani, general manager, Cerner Middle East. “We are honored that King’s Dubai has shown such confidence in Cerner and are proud to welcome them as the first private hospital in the UAE to the Cerner family.”

King’s Dubai is set to become one of the first UAE-based hospitals to offer liver transplant procedures. While its doors will open in 2018, its Dubai-based clinics will open in 2017. King’s Dubai’s expansion follows the opening of its flagship Medical & Surgical Centre in Abu Dhabi in 2014.

Cerner to Acquire Siemens Health Services for $1.3 Billion

Acquisition to further industry innovation with a combined $650 million annual R&D investment

Complementary client bases expand global presence

Cerner and Siemens AG to combine strengths to deliver new solutions through $100 million strategic alliance

KANSAS CITY, Mo., Aug. 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE / Knowledgebylanes) — Cerner Corporation (Nasdaq:CERN) and Siemens AG today announced they signed a definitive agreement for Cerner to acquire the assets of Siemens’ health information technology business unit, Siemens Health Services, for $1.3 billion in cash. By combining investments in R&D, knowledgeable resources, and complementary client bases, the acquisition creates scale for future innovation. As part of the agreement, Cerner and Siemens will form a strategic alliance to bring new solutions to market that combine Cerner’s health IT leadership and Siemens’ strengths in medical devices and imaging.

“We believe this is an all-win situation for the clients of both organizations and all of our associates and shareholders,” said Neal Patterson, Cerner chairman, CEO and co-founder. “Through more than $4 billion of cumulative investments in R&D, Cerner has established a strong market standing and is positioned for continued growth. Siemens’ health care IT assets provide additional scale, R&D, an impressive client base, and knowledgeable and experienced associates who will help Cerner achieve our plans for the next decade. In addition, the alliance we’re creating will drive the next generation of innovations that embed information from the EMR inside advanced diagnostic and therapeutic technologies, benefitting our shared clients.”

Based on 2014 estimates, Cerner and Siemens Health Services have combined totals of more than:

– 20,000 associates in more than 30 countries
– 18,000 client facilities, including some of the largest health care organizations in their respective countries
– $4.5 billion of annual revenue
– $650 million of annual R&D investment

The transaction is expected to be more than $0.15 accretive to Cerner’s non-GAAP diluted EPS in 2015, and more than $0.25 accretive in 2016. Non-GAAP earnings are expected to exclude share-based compensation expense, one-time transaction costs, and acquisition-related amortization and deferred revenue adjustments.

“We are excited to join with one of the most competitive companies in health IT today, and a recognized leader in innovation,” said John Glaser, Ph.D., CEO of the Health Services business unit of Siemens Healthcare. “Siemens cares deeply about its clients and believes Cerner is the best organization to fully support their health IT needs going forward. The knowledge and strength of our combined resources opens up great possibilities for future collaboration and development, which is exciting for all of us. And our clients will benefit from our alignment with a company that has such a strong historical and future commitment to rapid innovation.”

Cerner has a 35-year history of creating value for clients by providing innovative solutions and services that help health care providers around the world increase safety, improve quality and reduce waste. Cerner is well-positioned to help clients be leaders in health care delivery and population health management today and tomorrow. The company’s competitive market position, combined with significant investments in R&D, understanding of advances in science and IT, as well as health care regulatory and industry shifts, enable it to help clients succeed.

“We have tremendous respect for Siemens’ clients, their markets and their needs,” said Patterson. “We look forward to bringing them into the Cerner family, especially as they face increasingly complex clinical and regulatory environments, with mandates to improve quality and pressures to lower cost. We pride ourselves on helping clients navigate changing times so they can be leaders in providing care to their communities. We’re committed to supporting Siemens’ clients, and we want them to have confidence that we have the vision, scale and resources to help them achieve their plans for building their organizations’ futures.”

Following the acquisition, support for Siemens Health Services core platforms will remain in place. Current implementations will continue, and Cerner plans to support and advance the Soarian platform for at least the next decade. Cerner will work with all clients to support their short-term and long-term business needs.

Global Alliance

Cerner and Siemens will create a strategic alliance to jointly invest in innovative projects that integrate health IT with medical technologies for the purpose of enhancing workflows and improving clinical outcomes. Each company will contribute up to $50 million to fund projects of shared importance to both companies and their clients.

The alliance has a three-year initial term. Advanced workflows along with medical images and their unique role in diagnostic and therapeutic decision-making, will be an early focus of the joint work.

“Siemens is very innovative around imaging, diagnostic and therapeutic technologies and processes,” said Patterson. “Medical technologies generate mountains of images and other data that must be stored, accessed, visualized and interpreted intelligently. In addition, advanced diagnostic and therapeutic processes are enhanced by presenting EMR data at just the right moment and in the right context. Together we will innovate at the edge where IT, processes and technologies meet.”

Transaction Summary

Cerner intends to finance the acquisition with cash on hand. The acquisition is expected to close in the first quarter of 2015, subject to regulatory approval and other customary conditions. The transaction has been approved by the boards of Cerner and Siemens.

RIYADH, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, April 21, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE ) — Clinicians at Prince Mohammed Bin Abdulaziz Hospital (PMAH) worked with Cerner to successfully deploy — in a record nine months — a set of health IT solutions designed to automate the hospital’s clinical information processes. This marks Cerner’s first project with the Ministry of Health in Saudi Arabia.

The main business drivers for the electronic health record project are:

–  Improving quality and accessibility of patient information
–  Decreasing workflow bottlenecks caused by paper charts
–  Documenting care; placing medication and other orders directly in the EHR
–  Reducing the potential for errors

Cerner’s EHR is the foundation of the health technology deployment at PMAH. It enables the hospital to store and communicate patient information among caregivers, and provides clinical decision support.

“By working with Cerner, we’re improving the quality of care we provide our citizens. We are pleased with the seamless transition in a record nine months. These improvements are the result of teamwork between PMAH and Cerner, and we look forward to reaping the benefits of this new electronic system,” said PMAH CEO, Dr. Saleh AlOqiel.

Cerner Middle East Expands Office in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to Support Future Growth Plans

RIYADH, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Jan. 14, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE ) — To continue accommodating the growth of the health care sector in Saudi Arabia, Cerner Middle East, the premier health care information technology (HIT) solution provider, announced the expansion of its office in Riyadh, which was launched in 2008. Through the expanded office, Cerner aims to strengthen its commitment in Saudi Arabia; support its client base as well as enhance its implementations for the Saudi market.

The Saudi Arabia branch of Cerner Middle East is located at Al Degheither Building, Tahliya Street in Riyadh.

Last year, Prince Mohammed Bin Abdulaziz Hospital (PMAH) in Riyadh and Cerner signed a landmark agreement to automate clinical information processes in the hospital. PMAH will use Cerner Millennium(R), a unified health IT computing platform, to enable its health professionals to prioritize safety, efficiency and evidence-based best practices.
