HMC Welcome Message
It is my pleasure to welcome you to Qatar.
I am delighted that the IHI has chosen to work with us at Hamad Medical
Corporation (HMC) in presenting their first Middle East Forum on Quality
Hamad serves a growing population, whose healthcare needs are becoming
increasingly complex. The great challenge we face is to continue to meet
this fast-growing demand for our services, whilst improving the quality
of care we provide to all of our patients. As part of this, we have
announced our intention of becoming an academic health system, which at
its heart combines innovative research, top class education and
excellent clinical care.
This Forum is the result of a wider collaboration with the Institute for
Healthcare Improvement (IHI), which is a recognized international
leader in health and healthcare improvement and innovation. The Forum
supports fully our ongoing work to deliver the safest and most effective
care to our patients.
Every healthcare professional aspires to get the right care to the right
patient at the right time. At this Forum you can help develop your
skills and knowledge through learning about the latest evidence-based
best practices in quality improvement, the most innovative methodologies
to implement these practices and how to measure rates of success.
Whether you are a doctor or nurse, laboratory technician or pharmacist,
in hospital management or responsible for primary healthcare – everyone
who delivers or influences the delivery of patient care will benefit
from the collective expertise and experience that will be shared at this
I wish you all a successful and enjoyable Forum.
