08 January 2018
According to Hail Health Affairs, over the past year 2017, the medical rehabilitation services were provided to more than 68,899 beneficiaries, including 8,728 of naturopathic medicine, 54,959 of physiotherapy, 887 of occupational therapy and 4,325 beneficiaries of prosthetics. The medical rehabilitation department provides its services through four specialties, namely: naturopathic medicine, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and prosthetics. All these services share one goal, that is to help patients perform their daily life activities independently, as much as possible, through improving their body functions and disability.
In 2018, the Affairs plans to open a medical rehabilitation section at both of Al-Amal Complex for Mental Health and King Salman Specialist Hospital in Hail, in addition to establishing specialist clinics for women health and children rehabilitation.
The Ministry of Health (MOH) has launched recently the (e-health) application 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 allow them get the needed specialized medical consultations.
According to MOH, the first stage of using the new App. will cover Northern Borders, Asir, Tabuk, Jazan, Najran and Al-Jouf Health Affairs. Then, the App. will be used across the Kingdom, by Allah's Leave.
The App. is designed to enable audio-video communication from 9 a.m. to 12 a.m. during working days, as well as weekends from 1 p.m. to 12 a.m. Accordingly, users can login into the application, communicate directly with a specialist, and have their cases diagnosed through the application. Hence, the specialist answers users' inquiries, provide the needed medical consultation and the necessary medical procedure.
