“We are proud of our commitment to excellence and are constantly searching for ways to modernize and provide our patients with advanced and comprehensive medical care. We are focused on providing exceptional care and are continually working to improve every aspect of our hospital. We chose to implement UpToDate and Medi-Span Clinical in the Certacure EMR to support us in this mission and help our clinicians make the most appropriate care decisions for every patient, every time,” said Dr. Tarek El-Louzy, General Manager, Istishari Hospital.

Clinicians trust UpToDate to make the best care decisions and stay abreast of contemporary standards in the workflow. In study after study, UpToDate is associated with improved patient outcomes and hospital performance. Every day, around the world, clinicians view topics covering 25 specialties over 1.5 million times.

Hospitals around the world integrate Medi-Span drug screening in EMRs such as Certacure to support appropriate medication decisions while prescribing, as well as to reduce adverse drug events and improve patient safety.

“We are honored to support doctors, nurses and pharmacists across Istishari Hospital by providing access to evidence-based solutions that will help them deliver the best care everywhere,” commented Alaa Darwish, Country Manager, Middle East, Turkey and Africa, Clinical Effectiveness, Wolters Kluwer, Health.

Ali Abu-Afifeh, CEO, Certacure commented, “Integrating clinical decision support technology into the EMR has the potential to transform healthcare quality and hospital performance. This is a key component of any healthcare digitization strategy and we are delighted to support Istishari Hospital in this endeavor.”
