Preparing to speak at the major HealthcareTech Summit in Dubai on 7-8 December, Mr Adil Ameer of Dubai Healthcare City talked about why the event is so important for medical information officers and nursing officers in the Middle East
He said, “The evolution and innovation of clinical technology has been critical and imperative to the enhancement of the quality of health care services around the world.”
