Healthcare leaders and professionals from around the world gathered at the global health exhibition in Riyadh direct the gaze towards pressing challenges and transformative future of the industry. Guided by core themes like precision medicine, population health, and noncommunicable diseases, the conference highlighted the urgency of addressing key barriers to revamping Saudi Arabia’s health sector.
 
Moreover, Saudi Arabia’s commitment to strengthening healthcare accessibility, quality, and innovation is a comprehensive endeavor with the potential to elevate the well-being of its citizens and make a significant impact on the global healthcare landscape. In 2022, the healthcare and life sciences sector accounted for 14.5 per cent of the country’s budget expenditure, making it the third-largest recipient of government funds, receiving a substantial US$36.8 billion.

Vision 2030

At the heart of Saudi Arabia’s healthcare transformation lies Vision 2030, a comprehensive roadmap that prioritizes health and wellness as a fundamental component of the nation’s economic diversification. As part of this transformation, the Ministry of Health has undergone a significant reorganization. In the past, the Ministry of Health held the roles of regulator, provider, and payer.

However, this structure has now evolved into a more streamlined system. The Ministry of Health will exclusively serve as the regulator, while the Health Holding Company will take on the role of provider, taking ownership of over 20 clusters across five regions. Apparently, These clusters are on track to become accountable care organizations (ACOs). The National insurance system will take the responsibility of the payer.

In a conversation with MedEdge MEA, Dr. Ali Tinazli, CEO of Lifespin, discussed the recent global health exhibition in Riyadh, where healthcare pioneers and professionals converged to address crucial challenges. He emphasized, “At the global health exhibition in Riyadh, healthcare pioneers and professionals gathered to spotlight the pressing challenges and the transformative future of the industry. Guided by core themes like precision medicine, population health, and noncommunicable diseases, the conference underscored the urgency of addressing key barriers to revamping Saudi’s health sector.”
