Paediatric hospital Al Jalila Children's Specialty Hospital in the United Arab Emirates, has entered into an agreement with Children's National Health System to form a health IT strategic partnership.

As part of the agreement, Children's National Health System, through The Bear Institute for Health Innovation, will use its experience, practice and resources to serve in a strategic advisory role to guide Al Jalila Children's Specialty Hospital in effectively using health IT to deliver the highest quality of care for children across the Gulf Cooperation Council and the region.
