Mubadala Health has entered into a strategic collaboration with Oracle in order to accelerate innovation and efficiency across its facilities.

As part of a new agreement, the network will utilize Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) via the Oracle Cloud Dubai Region to run its Oracle Cerner electronic health records (EHR) system.

Mr. Khalid Al Amadi, Senior Director of Informatics and Integration at Mubadala Health, said that, “We are thrilled to have signed this significant agreement and to have established such an important relationship with Oracle. This milestone agreement is another step in our digital transformation journey and will allow for exponential improvements in the way care is provided to the community.”

The agreement complements Mubadala Health’s efforts to adopt new innovations, expand the services it provides to patients, create more seamless access to patient records for providers, and grow partnerships in the region.

According to the statement, “With the speed and scalability of OCI, Mubadala Health will have faster access to patient care data for thousands of clinicians and staff personnel, which can help improve outcomes and patient experience.”

“Mubadala Health aims to lead in a new era of healthcare system interoperability. This is expected to enhance clinical experiences and accelerate cutting-edge innovations thereby helping advance better patient health outcomes,” Mr. Al Amadi added.

“Running its Cerner EHR on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure in the Dubai Region will help Mubadala Health drive new advancements that can help boost operational and financial efficiency,” as per the statement.

The improvements will cover computing, storage, networking, database, analytics, and mobile services that can increase service level protection while decreasing spend on hardware upgrades, storage, servers, and licenses as well as proactive monitoring and management of the system.

Mr. Travis Dalton, Executive Vice President at Oracle Health, commented that, “Our collaboration with Mubadala Health is a testament to how we are supporting healthcare systems to become more digitized, connected, and interoperable. With OCI, Mubadala Health will be better able to manage its growing patient volumes, help reduce operational costs, and provide clinicians with better access to information to help improve care.”
