Omnia Health Magazine August-September 2020

Explore the latest issue that covers developments in KSA, technology trends accelerated by COVID-19, medical travel, a dedicated paediatrics report and more.

The upscaling of virtual care capacity and telehealth, in the wake of COVID-19, has given rise to a number of new digital health tools such as self-triaging through apps. We take a detailed look at these technologies on page 14.

This issue also puts the spotlight on the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) where health and social development are a key sector for the government as it holds 16.4 per cent of the country’s budget expenditure—the third-largest share in 2020. We highlight the main drivers and initiatives that are set to transform healthcare delivery in the Kingdom and take a look at how the country has effectively tackled the pandemic (pg 08).

Additionally, this edition features a dedicated paediatrics section that highlights trends that are transforming the delivery of care in the field, right from innovation in medicine to virtual reality (p43).
