MOH Saves the Lives of 97 Patients, Refers 5,265 Cases Last Week
08 December 2015
Thanks be to Allah, the Ministry of Health (MOH), through Referral Program (Ehalati), has finished the procedures of hospitalizing 1.111 patients at inpatient sections in the specialized hospitals. Besides, it managed to save the lives of 97 patients, after providing them with specialized services at reference hospitals, and referred 5,265 others over the period from November 29th to December 5th, 2015 (corresponding to Safar 17th to 23rd, 1437H). This comes as a part of the MOH's unstinting support to specialized therapeutic services throughout the regions of the Kingdom.
This was announced by the Supervisor of Ehalati Program, Mr. Suleiman Ahmad Al-Sharie, who revealed that out of the total cases referred to the specialized and reference hospitals, through an automated paperless system, 3,214 patients (amounting to 61%) were approved. On the other hand 1,551 progressing cases (at a rate of 29.5%) are still being considered, while 325 cases (at a rate of 6.2%) received treatment at the same hospital, and 175 cases (at a rate of 3.3%) were placed on the waiting list, to be dealt with in the coming period depending on their health condition.
Mr. Al-Sharie pointed out that the life-saving cases amounted to 97 (at a rate of 1.84%), while the emergency cases amounted to 1,367 (at a rate of 25.96%). Inpatients number amounted to 1,111 cases (at a rate of 21.10%), and the cases referred to the outpatient clinics amounted to 2,690 (at a rate of 51.9%) of all referred cases.
It's worth mentioning that ‘Ehalati’ Program is reckoned one of the new MOH's e-programs. Advantages of the program include providing medical counseling among physicians in the various medical facilities to study the health condition of the patients without the need to refer them. It also provides all the logistic and coordination-related requirements to refer the patient from one medical facility to another. In addition, Ehalati provides an accurate archiving and statistical system, which contains information of the referred patients through the program to different health facilities across the Kingdom.
