Healthcare Automation With Document Management System
In 18 November 2014 - Written By

Every patient, doctor, nurse and other medical personal in any hospital are extensively involved with documents. You will find thousands of documents in the form of patient history files, forms, receipts, lab test reports, insurance details and other diagnosis reports.

In the past, doctors and patients faced many difficulties due to incomplete patient histories.

In the recent Middle East Healthcare summit held at Shangri-La, Dubai (26-28 October 2014) [1] discussion regarding the latest developments in healthcare information systems took place. The conference was attended by government officials, policy makers and healthcare providers from all over the middle-east.

The two day summit featured several workshops and the summit highlight was a panel discussion on HIT Transformations Affecting Healthcare (Healthcare Information Technology): Best Practices in US & UAE. The summit focused highly on automating the healthcare system to fuel its growth in the middle-east region.

According to recent news (Zawya) middle-east will face pressing healthcare challenges [2] that include lack of proper HIS infrastructure, urbanization and ageing population. It is also estimated that the healthcare budget would need to be substantially increased to $24.7 billion by 2035.

If however the inefficiencies in the healthcare system in middle-east are not resolved than the budget would increase exponentially. That is why in the recent healthcare summit in Dubai the core discussions were on usage of HIS and healthcare best practices through middle-east.
