The picture you see above is in Kuwait, and No AWE_T, this is not a model! It’s an entire center with approximately 20 beds that have this technology 🙂 YAHOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Yesterday at work I was tasked to tour a delegation from Cerner to and show them our health IT systems. On the way to Amiri hospital to review their Hospital Information System (HIS), we quickly stopped by the newly built Sabah AlAhmad’s Cardiac Center for a quick grand-tour of the facility!

I was personally amazed that we have such high-tech building with fancy and state of the art medical technology that over-looks the ocean 🙂 Oh, get this, the room pictured above (one of 20 more) is equipped with an ambient lighting system and when the patient is lying down and resting, he/she could enjoy watching a movie or catching a favorite episode of their SitCom! As a matter of fact, they were playing the movie, Vantage Point! Good movie 🙂

I’m so happy to see such building and I hope that we replicate this model of newer healthcare facilities … One key lesson here: Don’t have the Ministry of Health get involved in building the facility, until later-on in the process 🙂
