02 April 2018

​According to Tabuk Health Affairs, King Khaled Hospital-Tabuk has recently launched its Medical Records e-Archive System, which allows the hospital to manage, store and track medical files. The system also allows keeping multiple formats of documents, and facilitates retrieving them for different purposes. 

"So far, some 180,000 medical records have been archived and stored on the system. Also, e-records are adopted in both outpatient clinics and emergency; to review archived medical records. The e-record includes the patient's personal information, diagnosis, history, vital signs, prescribed treatment procedures, results of medical tests, x-ray images and medicines taken", adds the Affairs.

On the other hand, in 2017, the Ministry of Health (MOH) increased the cardiac centers by 46%, bringing the total of cardiac centers into 19 instead of 13. This has helped reduced referral of cases to specialized cardiac centers in big cities. As well, it has helped reduce transport and travel costs borne by such centers’ visitors.​

This is part of MOH’s 2017 achievements report. This achievement is a direct outcome of building the right infrastructures, equipping cardiac centers and recruiting highly qualified doctors and visiting doctors to these centers. 
In the same report, MOH also announced adding 89 new dental clinics in 2017, thus, bringing the total of dental clinics into 3,081 instead 2,992. This has helped boost health services quality and facilitate access to dental services through additional dental clinics across health centers and hospitals.
