Thursday, 01 07 2016, Category: Insurance and Reinsurance, Country: Saudi Arabia
The Council of Cooperative Health Insurance under the leadership of the minister of health the Engineer Khalid bin Abdulaziz Al-Faleh adopted the Saudi Health Insurance Bus (SHIB) as an electronic framework which is considered as the largest and most important digital transformation which will contribute to the future development of the health insurance industry. This project will strengthen the health care service quality offered to the insured and will boost the organizational capacity of the insurance sector by linking electronically all the parties of the health insurance system (the insured, health insurance companies, health care service providers) through an information technology infrastructure that can help strategic decision making and which can support the health criteria and indicators as well as the policies. In turn this system will improve the efficiency of regulation on the insurance sector.
This was stated in the session 102 of the General Secretariat in Riyadh in order to follow the latest developments of the cooperative health insurance industry.
