Putting the Patient First in Saudi Arabia

During this year’s Saudi Health event, healthcare innovation and solutions were pulsating across the capital. As a partner in the Kingdom’s progress and a platinum sponsor to the event, GE Healthcare was proud to be taking part by sharing some of our latest innovations across oncology, cardiology, women’s healthcare and more.

Reflecting the Ministry of Health’s focus on being “Patient-First” and the Kingdom’s Strategic Healthcare Plan, the GE commitment to training, technology advancement and knowledge sharing has never been more thriving.

Visitors who attended Saudi Health saw the unveiling of several new healthcare innovations in general radiology, and also saw the progress of GE Healthcare’s commitments across the Kingdom. This is all part of bringing the very best technology, expertise and solutions to Saudi Arabia. These developments include breakthrough initiatives in e-health, performance transformation and cancer screening.

And if you’re curious about the future of healthcare in Saudi Arabia, one topic on everyone’s lips was the connectivity of healthcare and improvements in the patient experience. The new technologies presented for the first time in Saudi Arabia take patient-first technology to the next level with everything from the Silent Scan, the Universal Viewer, Optima CT660 FREEdom Edition; the Logiq S7 ultrasound system and the DoseWatch program.

Today, more than 20,000 GE Healthcare technologies are deployed across the Kingdom’s hospitals. GE has also provided training to more than 4,000 healthcare professionals. In partnership with the Ministry of Health, GE has transformed operating rooms in 20 hospitals and 13 emergency rooms across hospitals in the Kingdom.
