02 January 2018
By Allah’s Grace, the general surgery team of King Abdulaziz Specialist Hospital-Taif has successfully saved the life of a patient in his 30s suffering from strangulated umbilical hernia with intestinal gangrene. Thus, his serious condition required an urgent medical intervention at the surgery department. Immediately, the team resected the damaged part and made reconnection. Then, the patient was discharged from the hospital in a good health.

On the other hand, the Ministry of Health (MOH) has recently launched the (e-health) App. to facilitate access to visual medical consultations on smartphones. In so doing, MOH seeks to employ cutting-edge technologies to enhance effective communication with service beneficiaries, and to provide them with the needed specialized medical consultations

According to MOH, the first stage of the new App. will cover the Northern Borders, Asir, Tabuk, Jazan, Najran and Al-Jouf Health Affairs. Then, the App. will be used across the Kingdom, Allah Willing.
The App. is designed to enable audio-video communication from 9 a.m. to 12 a.m. during working days, and from 1 p.m. to 12 a.m. on weekends. Accordingly, users can login into the App., communicate directly with a specialist, and have their cases diagnosed through the App. Hence, the specialist can answer the users' inquiries, and provide the needed medical consultation and the necessary medical procedure.
