2nd Annual Health Facilities Infrastructure Saudi Arabia Summit, 30 September – 3 October 2012, Riyadh
According to RNCOS report on “Saudi Arabia ICT Market Forecast 2014″, the Saudi ICT market has witnessed significant growth during the past few years with growth across almost every industry verticals. The Kingdom has become one of the fastest growing IT markets in the Middle Eastern region and is projected to account for up to 50 percent of the total ICT investments in the GCC during 2010-2012.
Healthcare professionals in Saudi Arabia are required to constantly reduce operational costs and streamline their services. In addition, they must strive to improve performance, the quality of services and meet international standards of accreditation. Sophisticated information technology (IT) services are increasingly being used to manage the balance of these two objectives.
However, planning and carrying out IT projects can be complicated for a variety of reasons including poor planning, unrealistic time-frames, lack of specialized IT project management experience, incompatible technology or malfunctioning hardware and a general lack of understanding about the specific challenges of information technology projects by those in charge of their planning. This means a majority of IT projects are late, over budget or do not meet all project requirements.
Dr. Mustafa H. Qurban, Chief Information Officer, King Fahd Military Medical Complex and Mr. Monief Eid, National PACS Programme Manager from the ICT Department at the Ministry of Health, Saudi Arabia both advise IT professionals to examine the IT project lifecycle, to understand project management methodologies and external constraints and to manage the risks to achieve success.
Dr. Qurban and Mr. Eid will be discussing project management in addition to designing hospitals of the future at the 2nd Annual Health Facilities Infrastructure Saudi Arabia summit between 30 September – 3 October 2012 at the Radisson Blu, Riyadh. Engineer Ahmed Barradah, Process Automation Manager at King Fahad Medical City will also be delivering a presentation on examining how IT healthcare systems can contribute to gaining and sustaining accreditation.
