Saudi Arabia Telehealth Sector

New regulations for telehealth services in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia stimulate growth in the sector.

To keep up with the emerging telehealth sector, new regulations for telehealth services apply to all healthcare facilities and professionals licensed by Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Health (MoH).

The MoH recently launched the Saudi Telehealth Network initiative to connect specialized health care facilities with primary health care centers and hospitals in remote areas using telemedicine systems to enhance the quality and reach of healthcare services.  Plus the MOH launched the use of smartphone applications, such as Seha, Tetamman, Tabaud and Tawakkalna, to support its use in the healthcare sector.  

U.S. companies are encouraged to explore this emerging industry as there is a great demand for technology and expertise in the Saudi healthcare sector.
