ALERT participated in the Saudi e-Health Conference 2010, Riyadh, Middle East, which took place on May 2-5, 2010.
The Saudi e-Health 2010 Conference brought together ministers, healthcare providers and some of the main vendors in the healthcare IT industry. The main goal of this event was to empower the advancements in the quality of healthcare. The conference's strong ties to the Saudi Association for Health Informatics (SAHI) and healthcare communities offered abundant opportunities for interaction and collaboration with the national e-health initiative as guided by the Saudi Ministry of Health.
The Saudi e-Health Conference is the largest and fastest growing healthcare event in the Middle East, and takes place every two years with the aim of discussing e-health national plans. In this year's edition the Ministries of Health of Saudi Arabia, Oman, Yemen, Bahrein, United Arab Emirates, among other, were present at the Conference.
During the event, the ALERT team performed a great number of demonstrations and showed the benefits of using a tool that not only promotes satisfaction among clinical staff and patients, but also actively contributes to reducing medical errors.
