Healthcare Experts And Technology Providers to Meet in Abu Dhabi

Fleming Gulf Conferences will organise the much anticipated 5th edition of the Middle East Healthcare Expansion Summit, on 10-11 October in Abu Dhabi which will focus on the advancements of healthcare ICT.
Innovations in healthcare ICT in the Middle East have become a driving force in the quest to improve hospital efficiency, reduce costs and provide better health outcomes for patients. The GCC and the Middle Eastern countries are expected to make huge investments in areas such as network infrastructure, security and mobile applications. 
After four highly appreciated editions which were attended by over 200 delegates, the Middle East Healthcare Expansion Summit powered by the GCC Health Minister's Council will stage the 5th edition on 10-11 October 2012, in Abu Dhabi, – UAE. With the Middle East healthcare industry estimated to grow at a rate of 16% annually with significant growth in ICT, this opportune conference will bring forth the latest innovations, emerging trends and  highlight exciting possibilities for new applications in the medical market.
The summit will witness senior leaders from the medical fraternity as well as the IT/Telecommunications industry coming together to jointly drive the healthcare ICT ecosystem. Discussions will span across trending industry topics like  E-Health, tele-health, mhealth, machine-to-machine technology, health information exchange, and contributions of mobile health providers to name a few. 
Thought leaders from the industry including  Prof. Tawfik Khoja, Director General, GCC Health Ministers Council, Abdul Rahman A.S. Al-Tauqi, Director General of Information Technology from the Ministry Of Health, Oman, Dr Ashraf Ismail, Managing Director, Joint Commission International – UAE, Dr. Oliver Harrison, Director of Strategy, Health Authority Abu Dhabi (HAAD), and Dr. Mohammad Abdulqader Al Redha, Director of Health Data & Information Analysis Department.

Kanupriya Singh, conference producer for the 5th Annual Middle East Healthcare Expansion Summit talks about what the conference will offer to the healthcare industry. “Since its inception, technology is driving the healthcare industry and continues to do so; but the question remains the same, 'How viable are these technologies and what should a customer expect from it?'. This conference will answer all the queries that a clinician has in his  mind and will create an opportunity for innovators to come up with the best. The region will witness healthcare providers and government bodies being paired with technology innovators from across the Middle East region, facilitating commercial partnerships and accelerating technology adoption in Healthcare.”
