As part of the Kingdom's National Transformation Plan, announced on 25 April 2016, there will be increased spending on healthcare technologies and more training programs to develop capabilities. Aligned with this vision and in this current climate of SMART patients, competitions and outbreaks such as the recent MERS scare, there is a crucial need to keep up with the latest technological developments, build the resilience and strengthen capabilities to cope with emergency situations, chronic illness, and ultimately apply best practice to improve patient care.

To support the Kingdom in reaching its goal to achieve world-class healthcare, the EMR Adoption ModelSM (EMRAM) Education workshop will to equip healthcare professional with the necessary knowledge to assist its hospitals in using the EMRAM roadmap and accelerate the adoption of advanced EMR capabilities in support of the Kingdom's National transformation Plan. The workshop will provide delegates with an understanding of how to achieve Stage 7 of the EMR adoption model, a near paperless environment with advanced clinical decision support triggering at the point of care to optimize clinical, financial, and operational outcomes.

The workshop will:

  1. Provide delegates with knowledge of the EMRAM criteria
