Source: Middle East Insurance Review | Jun 2021
The General Authority for Healthcare (GAH) has signed a cooperation protocol with Ibnsina Pharma who will provide the GAH with support for its plans to digitalise its health services.
These services are available in hospitals and health centres that serve Egypt’s universal healthcare programme.
The protocol includes cooperation in digitalising the GAH’s supply chain, including warehouses, in addition to developing applications that can provide health consultation virtually. This comes alongside other initiatives that will add efficiency in the implementation of the universal health insurance scheme in Egypt so that it is in line with international standards.
The protocol is part of the authority’s efforts to develop, upgrade, and regulate healthcare service providers, as well as supervise the healthcare services provided to Egyptian citizens using digital solutions. M
