Soon, around 90% of public hospitals across Egypt will be incorporated into a digital network supported by telecommunications company Telecom Egypt.

The system will allow the documentation of patients’ medical histories to be accessible through all hospitals, ensuring their safety during emergencies, as well as providing treatment and diagnostic services remotely. A unified prescription system will also be introduced ensuring standardised healthcare services at large through incorporating radiology and analysis centres. 

The new system is part of a nationwide vision of digitization, and will eventually allow patients to access their medical history through cloud services and encourage the launch of health applications.
