Alongside dignitaries from the WHO, Joint Commission, ECRI and various other educational institutions, Samer Daher, Senior Partner at POLC Consult, was invited as a speaker at the first Biomedical and Clinical Engineering Conference held at the Intercontinental Hotel in Riyadh.
In our speech, we addressed the future of biomedical and clinical engineering in light of the economic prosperity witnessed by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. We also linked the prosperity to an influx of business to suppliers, its short- and long-term impact on service and quality of installation, as well as the evolving role of IT in medical devices.
We concluded by pointing out the ubiquitous presence of IT within medical devices, urging biomedical and clinical engineers to embrace technology and the international standards that govern IT, thereby avoiding information silos at the enterprise level, and to demand quality project management from the vendors to ensure smooth installation and service.
Among other speakers, POLC Consult received an appreciation award during the closing ceremony for the insights offered.
