Dr Ibrahim Al Shaer, Director of the Commission, said, “The Medical Commission has also developed the techniques used by introducing the latest equipment, updating medical regulations and procedures. The second phase of the health information technology system was implemented, during which X-Rays were electronically linked from health care centres with Medical Commission, in addition to the promotion and continuous improvement of information technology and health information systems.”
