Under the direct supervision of the Ministry of Health the health sector in Oman is actively embracing state-of-the-art technologies to support the development of the health system.

A team of surgeons from the Dental Department at Ibri Hospital utilized 3D printing technology for the first time in the Sultanate to design a customed reconstructive plate to support a patient's lower jaw following the removal of a tumor.

The personal health file “Shifa application” displays the patient's health information registered in health institutions using the patient's civil number. It allows storing medical information and exchanging them between patients and physicians.

Moreover, Ajyal (Birth And Death Registration System) is an e-system that is developed to notify civil status centers of births or deaths occurring in hospitals and allows users to obtain birth and death certificates.
