Executive Summary 

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has embarked on an ambitious journey of digitization, set by the National Vision 2030. The Saudi Health Council as the regulator of both the public and private healthcare sectors is taking part of this national digital transformation journey and driving the digitization of healthcare facilities, including medical cities, hospitals and primary care centers.


The Digital Maturity Assessment project aims to establish a framework to measure the level of digitization across the various facility types in the Kingdom and gauge their adoption of digital health technologies that support the operations at the points of care.


The framework should address all related dimensions to have a successful assessment to identify the right digital maturity levels for the required facilities.
