The Ministry of Health has the task to develop a healthcare system that provides access to the isolated citizens; one of the proposals is the adoption of telemedicine. Research the barriers and challenges in adopting telemedicine in Saudi Arabia. Discuss the current KSA laws that protect patient information and provide for the ethical treatment of Saudi patients. Discuss the role of informed consent and the requirements needed for participation in a telemedicine network. What legal and ethical challenges do you see in adopting telemedicine in Saudi Arabia? Propose what you see as a solution to those challenges.
