In the framework of its commitment to social responsibility, Micro Focus, the global company for enterprise software, has announced its financial donation to the Children’s Cancer Hospital Foundation in Egypt 57357.
The donation aims to help the Hospital 57357 carry out its humanitarian tasks in devising new ways to treat thousands of children suffering from various types of cancer, as well as improve the quality of services provided to children.
A donation ceremony was held at the hospital’s headquarters, and was attended by Gonzalo Usandizaga, President of Sales at Micro Focus International (EMA & LATAM); Sherif Abul-Naga, Director of 57357 Hospital and Secretary General of the Friends of the National Cancer Initiative Association; and Abdel Hamid Hassan, Sales Director of Micro Focus, Egypt.
Gonzalo Usandizaga commented that this partnership with Hospital 57357 reiterates their endeavours to help civil society organizations to continue to play their role in advanced developments in general, with special focus on the medical sector. The Micro Focus team expressed hope that children do indeed benefit from the medical services provided by the hospital, as it was the consequence of a long yet fruitful process of cooperation with the hospital, to be able to provide a variety of digital transformation solutions that deliver superior health care services.
He added, “We are pleased to have Micro Focus as one of the partners in the digital transformation process, which will support the efforts of Hospital 57357 to achieve more medical successes and victories in the field of cancer treatment through our digital solutions for deep analytics services based on artificial intelligence and high-performance machine learning technologies. This will facilitate the hospital to achieve the best medical outcomes for patients, easily comparable to what we see in many European countries.”
He explained, Micro Focus, based in the United Kingdom and has more than 40,000 customers around the world and has about 15,000 employees, will help Hospital 57357 to achieve the desired results, by accelerating the performance of tasks, simplifying digitization processes, and strengthening business resilience and analytics on time, to provide the basic elements for success at the management level and to compete in providing medical services at international levels.
Usandizaga also noted that Micro Focus provides cyber security solutions to help the hospital’s technical team diagnose any potential risks or gaps in their cybersecurity set-up, and plans to provide the tools and support needed to accelerate the team’s software development.
He said, “This partnership reflects our behaviour with responsibility that comes within the company’s social responsibility programme Micro Focus Inspire and is at the heart of everything we do, whether it is internally for managing employee relations or externally with customers and local communities or in the surrounding environment through our role in the transformation into a sustainable economy and helping the children suffering from cancer and doing what we can to support the Hospital 57357.”
For his part, Sherif Abul-Naga mentioned that the relationship with Micro Focus continues and is developing annually, as it is one of the most important technology partners that has helped them develop and enhance work systems as well as the hospital’s resource tool – starting from the process of patient intake, to the storage and management of patient data, data security, and improved treatment outcomes.
On the other hand, Mohamed Al-Ajaj said that data and information are the true wealth of the hospital, which through data analysis helps improve treatment systems for sick children and store and protect hospital data.
