The Primary health Care Corporation (PHCC) will implement the electronic file system at 60 public schools for the academic year 2017-2018 as part of its efforts to promote school health services, improve the physical and psychological health of students, as well as to support their abilities.

PHCC had implemented the electronic file system in 30 schools in the academic year 2016-2017. The system provides a comprehensive overview of patient history during medical counselling, facilitating the history of laboratory tests, radiation tests, and archive images, as well as accessing the medical file information of each student.

Dr Badriya al-Malki, assistant executive director for continuing care and integrated services at PHCC, said that 266 schools have been brought under the PHCC services so far, with 275 male and female nurses working at these schools.
