Jordan Health 2012
With one of the best health care sectors in the Middle East, Jordan is the regional leader for medical tourism. The Ministry of Health (MoH) is working to boost efficiency and reduce wasted expenditure through initiatives such as the development of an e-health platform. This will provide an electronic platform for the storage, retrieval and updating of electronic health records, and will be rolled out across the kingdom’s public health facilities. Another key focus is the expansion of health insurance, with plans in place for everyone in the country to be covered within the next 5-10 years. Lastly, with the country needing more qualified medical staff to meet demand, the government is making efforts to train and recruit new doctors and nurses. This chapter includes interviews with Dr Awni Al Bashir, President of the Private Hospitals Association; and Raed Shadfan, CEO of Atlas Medical.
