Abdulrahman Al Mannai, Vice President of QIMC, explains the event’s relevance to Qatar’s medical sector as its initial stepping stone in the country’s journey for the local, regional and international medical sector progression, and markets that are built upon the medical industry. In addition, the quality and level of participation is more than what was expected. QIMC is confident that this event will enhance the image of Qatar globally, at the same time augment manufacturing in medical industries in the country.
Rabih Karam, the General Manager of the organizing company, stated that the event will put visitors right at the heart of the medical industry in the country and be given maximum exposure to the latest solutions, the most vital innovators and influencers.
The exhibition will be divided into five sections: (a) Government and public hospitals, (b) Private hospitals, clinics and medical centers, (c) Pharmaceuticals, (d) medical services and (e) medical appliances. More than 150 organizations and companies are joining the Congress, primarily coming from the GCC region as well as Asian, American and European companies that have shown strong support for this event.
CloudClinik, the official Knowledge Partner of the QIMC 2015, will conduct sessions about the improvement of healthcare using cutting-edge technologies such as a practice management system. In addition, CloudClinik offers a special subscription price to the event attendees as well as a free trial for new users. These sessions will feature the use of a computerized system that will make medical practice well-documented yet easier for both doctor and patient. This will eventually result in improved patient care as better healthcare happens when we let doctors focus less on documentation and more on the patient. This event will help promote awareness on the outcome of taking advantage of the IT advances in the healthcare field, and the lasting benefits of a centralized health database in Qatar. Overall, the QIMC 2015 will deliver the richly deserved focus and attention to the medical research organization presently operating in Qatar as well as concentrate on the well earned acknowledgement of the people in the field.
