What you'll learn

Digital health can and will play an increasing role in predicting, preventing and managing future pandemics and health emergencies. The digital transformation of the Kingdom’s health system and the implementation of digital health solutions has been a high strategic priority for many years. While COVID-19 continues to claim many lives every day and to challenge the vulnerability of our health systems around the world, the Kingdom has managed to contain its infection rate and keep mortality very low. What were the critical elements of their COVID-19 response? What role did digital health play? And what can the rest of the world learn from their strategy?

Moderated by HIMSS Chief Clinical Officer Dr. Charles Alessi, this webinar will convene top-level Saudi health leaders, including Dr. Ahmed Balkhair - Advisor to the Vice Minister for Digital Transformation - to share their approach and the role that digital health played in managing the outbreak in the Kingdom.
