Beyond COVID-19: Embracing Digital Health as the New Norm | Digital Event
Meet other changemakers as we forge paths to care for all.
Under the patronage of His Excellency Eng Fahad Al-Jalajel, Minister of Health of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and in a joint collaboration with the Ministry of Health, the Saudi Health Council, and the Saudi Commission for Health Specialties, the HIMSS21 Middle East Health Conference will take place 21–23 November 2021 as a digital event—so everyone, everywhere can come together to be the change.
HIMSS21 Middle East is organised by the National Health Information Center in partnership with HIMSS.
