Egypt’s Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research Khaled Abdel Ghaffar will launch on Sunday the first phase of a project to automate university hospitals.
Abdel Ghaffar said that all universities with hospitals are being developed, pointing out that the ministry is not interested in education only but rather in providing more medical services and providing the best for university-educated students.
He added that the development measures in university hospitals require a lot of money, asserting Egypt’s keenness to enhance the services provided by hospitals.
Furthermore, Abdel Ghaffar noted that the ministry has been working for two years on fostering digital transformation and digitising university exams.
The minister also confirmed that Egypt has allocated EGP 7bn for hospital automation.
The national project to automate university hospitals aims to raise the efficiency of medical and therapeutic services delivered to patients. Abdel Ghaffar explained that this helps save time and the effort of hospital staff. The project is also being implemented in accordance with the mandates of President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi to foster cooperation between the higher education and health ministries.
