The Ministry of Health (MoH) has referred 5,127 patients through the Ehalati Program, including 121 life-saving cases during the past seven days.

Supervisor of the Ehalati (referral) Program of the Ministry of Health (MoH) Suleiman bin Ahmad Al-Sharie described the program as a novel electronic program implemented by the ministry to exchange medical opinion and advice on patients from various groups of doctors irrespective of the location of the patients and doctors. “The patients need not move from hospital to hospital to seek medical advice; it can be done electronically through this system,” he explained.

“The MoH has referred 5,127 patients through the program during a period of one week which included 121 life-saving cases,” Al-Sharie said, explaining that efforts are being exerted to improve work in the program at the level of the ministry headquarters and health affairs directorates in regions and provinces.

It also provides all the logistic and coordination requirements to refer the patient from one medical facility to another. In addition, it provides an accurate archiving and statistic system, which contains information of the referred patients through the program in the Kingdom’s hospitals.

The Ehalati Program is one of the new e-programs carried out by the Ministry of Health. Advantages of the program are numerous, including providing medical counseling among physicians in the various medical facilities to study the health situation of the patient without the need for transferring him.

The program aims at unifying adopted measures on patient referral among health facilities at all levels throughout the Kingdom’s regions, as well as referring the patient automatically between the levels of the medical service in record time based only on the patient’s health situation and the objective medical opinion.
