Meanwhile, a key highlight of the exhibition is MOH’s booth number 1018, which will target innovative solutions impacting healthcare. Speaking about the exhibition, Dr. Qamra Said Al Sariri, Director General - Quality Assurance Centre, Ministry of Health said, “Establishing the Directorate General of Quality Assurance Center (DGQAC) has been a critical addition to the MOH in 2014. It has aided in deploying a strong quality management system to improve both service and staff performance across all levels. We are, therefore, ready to meet the needs of the next phase of Oman Vision 2040. DGQAC is continuously raising the quality of healthcare services and patient safety in all institutions of the MOH by strongly adhering to international standards. A vital factor complementing the system for continuous improvement was the Innovation Section (I.S). The I.S will continue to play a key role in building the innovation management framework that will encourage unique projects and intrapreneurship in MOH. OHEC will provide us with an excellent opportunity to exchange lessons learned in healthcare and intrapreneurship, and simultaneously collaborate with key stakeholders locally and globally to set new benchmarks.”

As one of the fastest-growing sectors in the world, the Sultanate acknowledges that healthcare goes beyond being an ethical or social imperative. It forms one of the most essential pillars that contributes to the long-term development of a nation’s economy and its sustained progress. OHEC seeks to facilitate impactful discussions that will address pertinent issues, concerns, and challenges in the sector while also highlighting viable methods to improve the healthcare ecosystem.
