Digital Transformation is making a huge impact on the Healthcare Industry around the Globe. The pandemic demonstrated that healthcare systems cannot remain stagnant and must quickly adapt to evolving needs. Every country in the world has realised that, as a result of [the pandemic], innovation isn’t just a luxury anymore,” said Gerard Hanratty, partner at Browne Jacobson who advises the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) on public law.The numbers back the fact that the region is getting behind new ideas. For instance, in a newly released report by the Dubai Healthcare City Authority, the MENA’s healthtech startup ecosystem is currently valued at over $1.5 billion, a 22x increase since 2016.
However, spending remains on the rise, and is expected to continue to do so due to factors such as population growth, higher life expectancy, and an increase in lifestyle illnesses and non-communicable diseases. The same report projects that healthcare spending in the GCC will grow at a CAGR of 4.9% to $99.6 billion in 2023 (from $86.2 billion in 2020), with the UAE and Saudi Arabia accounting for approximately 80% of the total. This highlights the need for preventative care to ensure sustainability in the long run.
The ‘’5th Digital Health MENA forum “ will bring to light the Digital Healthcare advancements in the country. Leaders of the Healthcare eco- system from public and private healthcare organizations in MENA will join us to emphasize on the vital role of digital health in delivering a promising future vision; namely, delivering best-quality integrated and comprehensive healthcare system.
