Hakeem Academy pillars:
Hakeem Academy consists of two pillars, the first of which is partnerships with universities to build capacity of students in the area of health informatics and train students on Hakeem program. This particular initiative commenced activities with the Faculties of Medicine, Nursing and Biomedical Engineering at the Hashemite University beginning of 2013.
The Hashemite University was the pilot site for the implementation of Hakeem Educational Lab, which was created to simulate the work environment of automated healthcare facilities to teach students how to use Hakeem program's different packages and prepare them for work after graduation.
To date, Hakeem Academy has partnered with a number of private and public Jordanian universities through signed memorandums of understanding (MOU):
- Al albayt University (Princess Salma Faculty of Nursing).
- Jordan University of Science & Technology (Faculty of Nursing).
- Al-Ahliyya Amman University (Faculty of Pharmacy, Faculty of Nursing and Faculty of Allied Medical Services).
- Hakeem Academy renewed their MOU with the Hashemite University in order to continue the partnership established in 2013.
The second pillar entails the provision of training for various departments throughout EHS. The aim is to develop the skills of employees in order for them to be able to perform their tasks and duties related to the effective implementation of Hakeem program.
