The 2nd EHR Forum at Arab Health 2013
attracted more than 70 healthcare IT professionals and specialists in Dubai to discuss the challenges related to the implementation of EMR/EHR systems within facilities in the Middle East.
Topics such as physicians’ engagement, procurement, provider selection, coding, systems interoperability, personally controlled EHR and e-Health strategy were addressed by some of the best experts in the region and internationally, including renowned professionals from the US, Australia, Singapore and Pakistan.
Over two days of talk and networking and a dedicated workshop day aimed at deepening specific issues, the 2nd EHR Forum allowed participants to discover more on the current trends in healthcare IT and to measure what needs to be done to reach the objective of a paperless, interconnected and truly digital health record system.

As investment in the healthcare sector is durably growing in the
GCC, many facilities have understood the importance of EHR system
implementation to answer the increasing demand for world-class
quality patient care and have therefore started their transformational
journey to electronic records.
It is today critical for top management operators to strategically
target their axis of development and EHR is part of them.
Th e EHR Forum at Arab Health returns with its 2nd edition building
up on the success of 2012 to advance the practice in the region. More
case studies and strategy focused topics will be discussed by the

Featuring a practical and comprehensive agenda, shaped by the
region's specifi c needs and driven by experienced and leading
