Oman’s Ministry of Health Selects Elsevier’s ClinicalKey

More than 8,000 healthcare employees have access to current, trusted clinical resource

Philadelphia, PA, March 19, 2015

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, announced today that ClinicalKey, an electronic medical reference, will be utilized in 47 secondary and tertiary hospitals, 22 extended healthcare centers, and 170 primary healthcare centers in Oman. More than 10,000 health professionals in Oman will have access to ClinicalKey.

“We selected Elsevier’s ClinicalKey to provide continuously updated and trustworthy information to our health professionals – regardless of their location,” said Dr. Said Alghenaimi, the Dean of Rustaq Nursing Institute, Chairperson MOH electronic library task-force. “With the addition of ClinicalKey, we will be able to provide the highest quality medical reference capabilities for our medical professionals so we can continue to improve the quality of healthcare delivery throughout Oman.”

ClinicalKey is a clinical search engine that gives healthcare providers access to a comprehensive collection of medical, surgical and nursing content. It is built on a search technology that uses the most advanced techniques to deliver the fastest, most clinically relevant answers. ClinicalKey draws from the single largest body of clinical content available, including Medline, 500+ journals, 1000+ books, drug information, guidelines, and patient education. With its responsive web design, the content is available on a laptop, tablet or phone, remotely or in the hospital.

“The geographical spread of the healthcare workforce in Oman posed a challenge for the Ministry of Health,” said Tim Hawkins, Managing Director of Clinical Solutions for EMEA-LA. “ClinicalKey was the solution they needed to provide a web-based consolidated and current source of medical reference information for its physicians so they can improve healthcare outcomes.”
