Qatar University will use the Cerner Academic Education Solution to teach students in its pharmacy programme how to work with an electronic medical record. This tool allows students to learn in an environment that mirrors the automated point-of-care setting in which they will one day work. The University is Cerner’s first client in Qatar.
The Cerner Academic Education Solution (AES) is a clinical information system adapted to support healthcare curricula and classroom instruction. This system can be used in academic programmes that teach nursing, medicine, pharmacy, physical therapy, occupational therapy and health information management.
The Cerner AES supports instructors in the development of data-driven teaching cases for online presentation and instruction, supported by evidence and clinical outcomes. Institutions can use the Cerner AES to simulate patient scenarios through case studies to support curricula objectives, teaching and learning.
Trace Devanny, president of Cerner, said: The Cerner AES is the result of collaboration between Cerner and educational institutions that recognise the value of embedding healthcare information technology and clinical informatics throughout the curricula to better prepare students to be successful in automated healthcare environments.
