MOH Launches the Birth e-Registration Service
28 April 2015
The Ministry of Health (MOH), as represented by the Information and Communications Technology (ICT), has launched the Birth e-Registration Service at most KSA public and private hospitals; the service has been applied so far in 585 hospitals (191 public hospitals, 381 private hospitals, 13 others) as a unified e-system. Remaining still is to move forward to the final phase which includes the linkage with the National Information Center and the Civil Affairs Agency, so as to send the birth notifications certificates electronically.

The project aims at enabling the public and private hospitals, as well as the other hospitals licensed by MOH to provide birth services, to electronically register baby delivery which either takes place at a licensed hospital, or outside it under a license (medical report) from that hospital, according to the civil affairs laws and regulations included in the terms of service of the Ministry of Interior (MOI) Agency for Civil Affairs Law, so as to be approved and documented as an alternative of paperwork notification.  
 Moreover, there are many advantages and benefits expected from the project, the most important of which is that "the system is carefully monitoring and comprehensively documenting all birth cases; a matter which would reflect on the accuracy of the health and vital statistics, as well as the statistics of the population growth and civil affairs. In addition, the benefits to be reaped from the system include verifying of all conditions and rules of work process, and classification, as well as sending the completed cases to civil register system in the Civil Affairs Agency. The system also includes some cases of special circumstances, besides classifying them to be handled according to the measures adopted by the Civil Affairs Agency, such as holders of the Displaced People Card, holders of the Saudi Passport without a civil record, and cases of non-matching fingerprints. In addition, the benefits include registering of all regular and irregular cases in the system to refer to them when needed, following up the registered cases, documenting the delivery incidence by the physician or whoever responsible in the hospital. The project also ensures filling up all necessary data correctly and completely in the civil register system. In addition, the project makes it easy to view the registered data and follow them up, as well as reviewing detailed reports on the registered deliveries and the users.
