14 October 2013
The Ministry of Health (MOH) has launched the Ejad (Finding) Online Program; in order to serve pilgrims, Tawaf foundations, and Hajj expeditions during the Hajj season of 1434H, for the fourth running year.
Meanwhile, the Advisor to the Minister of Health and the General Supervisor of Information and Communication Technology Department, Dr. Abdullah bin Ahmed Al-Wahaibi, pointed out that the Ministry of Health always seeks full employment of its capabilities to serve the pilgrims, and to help them perform this ritual properly.
It is also interested in providing all the health services which help the pilgrims and others perform the Hajj rituals in a smooth and easy way.
Out of its belief in the importance of employing technology to facilitate and speed the health institutions' work in the Kingdom in general; and in the areas where the rituals are performed in particular, the Ministry of Health is honored to launch the Ejad (finding) Online Program in order to serve the pilgrims, Tawaf foundations, and Hajj expeditions.
Dr. Al-Wahaibi noted that the Ejad (Finding) Program is considered a complement for what the Ministry started in terms of employing technology to secure the pilgrims' health services.
Thus, this program is linked to all the relevant hospitals, located in the areas (Makkah and Madinah) where the Hajj rituals are performed.
Moreover, Dr. Al-Wahaibi stated that the Program aims at helping the pilgrims, and those in charge of Tawaf foundations and Hajj expeditions report the missing people while performing the Hajj rituals, and look for them in all the hospitals located in the areas where the rituals are performed.
The Program is available in both Arabic and English languages.
Dr. Al-Wahaibi added that the program runs on the internet to the effect that all those who have access to the internet can use such a program freely. And it notifies those who filed reports about the existence of compatibility with the information of those who have reported their missing via the mobile and e-mail.
In addition, it helps the hospitals look for the compatibilities between those recorded in such hospitals and the reports filed by the pilgrims, Tawaf foundations, and Hajj expeditions.
And it secures communication between the injured and missing people recorded in the hospitals and the Tawaf foundations and Hajj expeditions.
Furthermore, it helps find the missing and injured people without the need to check in the hospitals, and provide the possibility of knowing the addresses and details of the hospitals, where the injured and missing people were admitted to.
