Majid, Altuwaijri
International Electronic Journal of Health Education, v10 p171-185 2007
The Saudi health sector has witnessed a significant progress in recent decades with some Saudi hospitals receiving international recognition. However, this progress has not been accompanied by the same advancement in the health informatics field whose applications have become a necessity for hospitals in order to achieve important objectives such as enhancing the quality of healthcare and reducing the time and cost for healthcare delivery. In this paper we introduce a new masters program in Health Informatics in a newly founded Saudi university specialized in health sciences. The program, which is the first of its kind in Saudi Arabia and the region, was designed based on the recommendations of the International Medical Informatics Association (IMIA). The program has gone through the first assessment with the help of the first group of graduates. The results are presented in this paper. (Contains 4 tables and 1 figure.)
