What can you expect from this issue?
Themed on Saudi Arabia, we look at how healthcare is advancing under the Kingdom’s ambitious Saudi Vision 2030 and National Transformation Program and through an interview with the Saudi Commission for Health Supplies. We also examine the roles of the new Health Holding Company, and the National Health Insurance Center - both announced in June this year. Telemedicine and value-based healthcare are two trends shaping healthcare today. Considering this, we look at the state of telehealth in Saudi Arabia as well as value-based healthcare in the medical technology industry.
With so much going on in the Kingdom, we reveal how international healthcare organisations can get involved through forging global collaborations with Saudi health entities. Medical device manufacturers may be interested meanwhile in understanding today’s medical device importation rules in Saudi Arabia.
Still on the global theme, you can learn about activities and achievements from US-based healthcare providers through our annual American Hospitals Report.
