Cerner signs contract with Amaron for the integration of its EHR with eHealth

We’re proud to announce that Amaron has entered into partnership with Cerner, a global leading healthcare technology company. Both companies are cooperating around the electronic health record (EHR) projects at the University Hospitals of Antwerp (UZA) and Gent (UZ Gent) and the Sint-Lucas Hospital Gent (AZ Sint-Lucas Gent). The partnership is an important step in the realisation of eHealth and the data exchange with the different eHealth platforms in Belgium.

Preparing for the future

The partnership enables UZA, UZ Gent and AZ Sint-Lucas to implement a fully integrated EHR. As a result, all patients’ medical records will be available at any time for patients and relevant healthcare professionals, all under the highest standards of privacy and security.

Maurice Van Kerkhoven, founder of Amaron, states: “As the healthcare sector undergoes a radical transformation at a rapid pace the Belgian government sees eHealth as a priority for the future. At the same time Belgian healthcare institutions need to be more efficient while providing better quality care. Amaron helps hospitals and other care providers to maximise their IT investments and provide better care, by enabling the optimal exchange of data between IT systems and with eHealth services platforms. In Belgium, more than half of the hospitals rely on our interoperability services. Partnering with Cerner is a fantastic opportunity to combine our deep knowledge of data exchange and Cerner’s leading EHR solution to accelerate efficiency, quality of work and patient safety of hospitals in the region.”

Cor Rumping, general manager for Cerner Belgium and the Netherlands, remarks: “We are extremely proud that Amaron has chosen to partner with Cerner. The strategic partnership will give Amaron access to our broad international expertise. At the same time, Cerner will benefit from their local experience and knowledge of data exchange in clinical environments and of the eHealth services platforms.”

Together, Amaron and Cerner share a common vision: to support the needs of hospitals and their community today and helping them prepare for the future.
