Burjeel Holdings, a healthcare services provider in the UAE and MENA listed on the Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange announced that its Board of Directors has approved entering into a strategic agreement with Oracle Health. The agreement will see the Group adopt Oracle Health’s Electronic Medical Record solution in an effort to deliver significantly improved clinical outcomes, in addition to boosting operational and financial efficiencies.
As part of the agreement, Burjeel’s Board of Directors approved the award of a AED 125 million service contract to Oracle Health to establish the omnichannel and integrated EMR platform, enabling the integration of Burjeel’s clinical ecosystem across its network of healthcare assets. As one of the first regional healthcare providers to adopt and implement a new Oracle Health EMR solution running on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure in the Oracle Cloud Dubai Region, Burjeel is well-positioned to continue delivering on its value-creation strategy of driving operational excellence through technology whilst also enhancing clinical outcomes and patient experience.
Commenting on Burjeel’s latest collaboration, Dr Shamsheer Vayalil, Founder and Chairman, Burjeel Holdings PLC, said: “Collaborating with Oracle Health and bringing this new technology to our operations will offer caregivers a simplified yet comprehensive view of patient data to better inform care decisions and improve health outcomes. The patient experience across our healthcare ecosystem will be streamlined, with less waiting time and more patient face-time with clinicians. And we’ll also be positioned to make strides in helping improve patient safety by ensuring the right information is available for our patients at the right time.”
With OCI’s performance, scalability and built-in security, Burjeel will be able to boost its operational and financial efficiency. In addition, Burjeel will also be able to support future care delivery approaches that require real-time care coordination and information exchange among multiple providers, patients, and locations. These benefits will provide the Group with significant opportunities to integrate its growing portfolio across MENA as it pursues its preferred capex-lite approach to network expansion.
“We’re working globally to help hospitals and health systems adopt technology that is digitized, open, and connected to help them solve some of their most complex challenges,” said Akram Sami Dhaini, vice president and managing director, Middle East and Africa, Oracle Health. “With the collaboration with Burjeel we continue our strong momentum in the region. Together, we can help Burjeel scale technology to meet its future needs, enhance operational and financial efficiency, and elevate the patient experience and engagement.”
Burjeel’s updated EMR system and integrated solution will be implemented across the Group through a structured three-year rollout program, which will see it launched across Burjeel Medical City, Burjeel Hospital, Abu Dhabi, and Burjeel Day Care Surgery Center during the pilot phase.
