The first congress in the MENA region to explore the opportunities and challenges of disruptive technologies in Healthcare and real-life impact on patients’ outcome and experience.

Nearly 70% of healthcare companies who transition to the digital economy are expected to see their growth significantly impacted over the next two years, according to a new survey. The digital economy harnesses the power of digital platforms and devices, analytics, the Internet of Things (IoT) and other technologies to reduce costs and create more value for patients across the continuum of care. Digital innovation will fuel the next wave of breakthroughs in healthcare and accelerate the broader shift toward data-driven care for healthcare organizations. Unlocking actionable data insights in real time is critical for the future success of value-based care. Digitization provides a path to redesign business models, remove organizational and data silos, automate processes and reduce repetitive tasks.

Global healthcare organizations are feeling the pressure of accelerated change and the disruption of traditional business models. They recognize the important role that technology must play in remaining competitive, and in delivering improved patient outcomes and experiences. According to a survey done by Oxford Economics, while healthcare organizations see the value of digitization, just 2% have completed digital transformation across their enterprises, while 54% of the organizations are testing/piloting digital transformation programs. Moreover, digital transformation is seen by the greater percentage of companies as important or even critically important (61%) to their survival today. In two years, that importance climbs to 76% and in five years, to 86%.
