It is with great pride that I share with you another successful project developed by the MNGHA. The National Approach to Standardize and Improve Mechanical Ventilation (NASAM) initiative, an innovative and collaborative multicenter, multidisciplinary program that aims to implement evidence-based practices to reduce complications associated with mechanical ventilation in critically ill patients.
NASAM was launched in January 2019, across 42 ICUs in the Kingdom, including 13 ICUs in the five (5) MNGHA hospitals and 29 ICUs in other health sectors. This project implements the standards of best practices for mechanical ventilation at critical care units.
MNGHA led a national system improvement program with the following clinical outcome: reduction in mortality, early weaning from mechanical ventilation, and early mobilization. It also has greatly improved the management of critical care Covid-19 patients during the pandemic.
I would like to encourage similar multicenter clinical trials and lead projects at a national level that implement a simultaneous, system-wide program to ensure the delivery of cutting-edge, patient-centered care.
MNGHA will continue to focus on measuring clinical outcomes and benchmarking to achieve the best outcome possible for our patients. Our commitment builds on this important measure of safe and effective clinical care.
The MNGHA has taken an important strategic goal to be recognized as a global healthcare leader in digital health and to make clinical care more “intelligent”. It is well poised to unlock its next achievement as Smart Healthcare thereby ensuring the best integrated care for the patients.
Smart Healthcare utilizes technology to connect the medical ecosystem in an intelligent manner and continue to innovate in order to transform for the future of virtual care.
MNGHA envisions to become a SMART Healthcare through one of the upcoming launch of new initiatives: Telehealth, Teleconsultation, Telepathology and Tele-ER.
Telehealth that delivers health and care remotely/online has become instrumental in medical assessment adopting in real time high clinical quality care that is more convenient, timely, smarter, efficient and compassionate while in strict compliance with ethical standards.
Just recently, the Health Affairs Council reviewed and approved APP 1443-01: Ambulatory Care Center TeleHealth Program. In addition, the HAC has approved the appointment of an Assistant Director for Telehealth who will manage and effectively implement the MNGHA Telehealth Program.
It is the mission of the MNGHA Smart Healthcare to establish sustainable solutions that enable our organization to carry out our solid commitment for patient’s access to care.
With these goals, I am confident that we are able to make MNGHA the best place for health and healing. I count on all of our talented and committed staff to join hands in transforming MNGHA to a smart healthcare. I hope you will all be proud of the exciting future of MNGHA.
Over the last few weeks we have been experiencing a rise in Covid-19 admissions specifically in critical care units. Despite this challenge, it is truly comforting to know that everyone is receiving the highest quality of clinical care.
Your insight of the situation and continuously dealing with patients’ conditions with utmost competence is exceptional. Moreover, treating the patients’ families and their loved ones with compassion and courage shows the greatness of your hearts.
It is my fervent hope for the staff to stay resilient in the midst of this crisis. We are all with you, supporting and praying for you to stay strong and maintain the passion of true service to our patients and their families.
In these crucial times, the power of kindness to one another and being genuinely concerned of each other’s well-being is truly essential in order for us to heal from the scars and chaos brought by this ongoing pandemic.
Caring, generosity, respect and consideration is the hallmark of our service to the patients.
Cultivating the virtue of humility and respect as MNGHA’s universal value is our greatest strength and should always be practiced specially at the time of great difficulties.
On behalf of the entire MNGHA leadership, I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the commitment and fortitude of all the staff.
In the heart of a successful and respected clinical care practice is the respect for time. We all understand how crucial time management is. Each second and minute is precious for all of our daily delivery of health care. Emergency, critical care, anesthesia, childbirth and surgical procedures are obviously super time sensitive practices and must leave no room for time wastage.
MNGHA is embarking on an inspiring initiative to eliminate any time loss specifically in bed management to improve the length of stay, nursing care, inpatient medication administration and OR services.
Just consider the time spent to administer antibiotics or other IV medications between the time ordered until actually been received by the patients. Mapping this journey can definitely be improved with efficient time management.
In addition, we have seen the impact of timeliness on the care of patients who present with myocardial infarction and stroke. Therefore, timely care, time efficiency and perception of time cannot be overemphasized and is a major determinant for clinical and operational excellence, higher quality of medical care, reduction of mortality and morbidity, prevention of worse outcomes, and patient satisfaction.
Time lost can never be recovered, hence, every second counts in taking care of patients. It is our duty to ensure promptness and punctuality is practiced in providing clinical care.
Please, let’s make timeliness our most important priority.
MNGHA as a healthcare organization is highly dependent on the value TRUST. The trust of patients and their families, and the trust in our healthcare system’s highly valued staff is fundamental to patient-centered care and a crucial cornerstone of patient-doctor medical/professional relationship.
While many factors are seen as important, influential and have a tremendous impact on the current and future delivery of health services, i.e digitization and technological advancement, TRUST remains central to clinical practice with a strong correlation to better clinical outcomes.
Patients must be able to trust their healthcare professionals with their lives and health. Healthcare professionals have a moral obligation to build this trust and treat patients that gives them confidence and assurance that they are receiving the best care that meets the highest ethical medical standards.
Knowledge, clinical skills, clinical competency, respect to patients, families, colleagues and teammates, and compliance with standards of best practices are essential elements toward building and maintaining trust.
Our aim is to earn the trust of our patients through dedication and compassionate care, which is a proud trademark of our service-oriented culture at MNGHA. Each patient serves as our golden opportunity to highlight our trustworthy clinical and operational services -- a pillar of MNGHA’s medical distinction.
Winning the trust of our patients establishes confidence that excellent clinical care outcomes and patients’ satisfaction & experience is assured. Thank you very much for providing the best reliable clinical care and for advancing trust as a very important value.
Since the WHO’s declaration of the Covid-19 pandemic in March 2020, we have never anticipated the scale of devastation in so many aspects of our lives. To date, the pandemic has led to 3.54 million deaths and 170 million cases globally.
MNGHA has met these challenges with a very powerful response at all levels of clinical care delivery accommodating the highest number of ICU cases and providing better clinical outcomes. The organization rose to the challenge at the most difficult time with all the staff specially our frontliners, supporting one another. I take pride how MNGHA’s valued employees exceeded our expectations and organizational ambitions. Simultaneously, we have maintained a reasonable operation and care of certain, time sensitive clinical conditions without care interruption.
I believe this comes from the inner strength cultivated in our organization that supports each other under a shared umbrella to survive any crisis, uncertainty and adversity together. The disruption brought by COVID19, has roused resilience in each one of us--a quality that doesn’t just aim to survive and bounce back from the struggles but also to be better than prior to the pandemic. The passion and dedication of the resilient staff to clinical care, as well as the mutual respect between colleagues during difficult experiences enabled each one to survive and thrive.
MNGHA is dedicated to support everyone to make our hospital the best place to care and healing, and create an environment enabling the staff reach their fullest potentials for excellence. The organization-wide efforts to focus on digitalization of healthcare, clinical performance and public health has never received so much attention until this pandemic.
Resilience will definitely stay relevant and a prominent quality in our organization. Many thanks for embracing this value and for your unwavering support.
I would like to thank employees from all regions who responded to the MNGHA Staff Experience Survey administered from March 1 to 8.
This survey was conducted with the purpose of co-developing the Workforce Experience Program with all the staff, initiate an open line of communication and strive to meet workplace expectations. The following were the survey questions:
What do you like best about working with MNGHA?
What can MNGHA do for you?
What can you do to make MNGHA the best place for patient care?
The comments and inputs from this survey will be reviewed and the results will be presented to the Health Affairs Council to establish strategic initiatives as soon as possible.
While the organization is thankful of the many positive feedback, the leadership also acknowledges the negative responses on various issues. Rest assured that the areas that need further improvement will be addressed as part of MNGHA’s strategic development plan in accordance with the national and international standards.
MNGHA puts high value on workforce experience giving it emphasis in the development of its overall strategy to be embedded it in its day-to-day practice and priorities. This is to ensure that each staff feels that they are at the best place not just for healing and care but the best place of work.
The Workforce Experience Program will be designed to focus on creating an environment that cherishes the employees, encourages team spirit, promote professional growth and well-being. With this, I hope to make the staff feel that their work is meaningful, no matter the level or position and that their commitment indeed makes a difference.
I look forward to a more inspired and happier MNGHA community.
Seeing how clinical care is rendered through the eyes of a patient best describes patient experience. In simple terms, it is patients’ perceptions.
Compassionate, humane, responsive and respectful care matter to patients. A healthcare worker’s personal and empathetic touch show that they are not just treated as disease, rather, persons whose thoughts, emotions, well-being and vulnerabilities are highly considered.
With this, I am pleased to announce MNGHA’s system-wide Patient Experience Program under the Quality and Patient Safety Department to be launched very soon. It is an essential stride toward the standardization of our patients’ experience measurement to meet and exceed national and international standards. Connecting with patients and learning from their feedback and experience would not only enhance clinical care practice and outcome but also serve as differentiator to patient journey.
This program will be the patients’ voice and indeed, MNGHA guarantees that it listens.
MNGHA’s very innovative model of Culture of Excellence creates an enabling infrastructure that puts patient experience as its top priority, supported by its strong digital platform making it the best place for healing and care. I have my full confidence in our MNGHA staff who have always delivered the best clinical care, hence, the best patient experience.
I look forward to your continued support and commitment towards this ambitious patient experience-driven journey.
Creating a culture of excellence and continuous improvement is MNGHA’s mission driven by enhanced patient and staff satisfaction and experience. The responsibility to adapt to innovation and high quality clinical standards of practice is everyone’s commitment even when no one is watching.
Clear and effective communication in organizations can create a culture of excellence rooted in trust that ensures patients, families and caregivers are treated with compassion, dignity and respect.
Building the right structures to make culture of excellence a reality, MNGHA launched large-scale projects such as Right Care, Right Now, iCARE, iSURGE comprehensive solution, allied health training and lead in nursing education, etc., towards robust, system-wide and excellent clinical performance & outcomes enabled by innovative digitalization strategies.
A complex healthcare organization as MNGHA, building a successful and sustainable culture of excellence is a big challenge and we eagerly, enthusiastically face these improvement opportunities in our everyday practice. The journey in itself is incredibly rewarding.
Together let us nurture TEAMWORK and strive to make MNGHA more EFFICIENT by fostering CULTURE OF EXCELLENCE in our organization’s DNA.
My high regards to all MNGHA’s valued and talented staff who are at the core of this huge mission and strategy.
The concept of efficiency in healthcare is the dynamic synergy between higher quality patient safety, effectiveness, and reliability. Efficiency is very important for enhancing equity and access to healthcare. It is a measure of quality and quantity of outcome simultaneously.
Highly efficient healthcare organizations exhibit strengths across many areas: leadership, decision-making, competent workforce, system processes and culture.
If a healthcare organization operates efficiently, it will produce an outcome without errors and harm.
Inefficiency in the Healthcare system is a global problem and approximately 20-50% is the percentage of waste. is experienced even in highly developed Healthcare system. Improved efficiency means very well eliminating wastage. One of the major reasons of inefficiency is the lack of integrated coordinated clinical care delivery, the “right care, right now” approach, efficiency will ensure access to care, availability of beds, OR time and reduction of length of stay.
Digitalization of healthcare is essential to improve efficiency through connectivity, data-driven decisions, etc.
Currently, various important performance and quality patient safety projects are ongoing, others will be launched soon, but then these initiatives require immediate action, participation and engagement by all. All departments in both Clinical and Operational areas will be engaged in a system that will measure our organization’s efficiency and effectiveness, thus I seek your support and cooperation.
Evaluating and improving organizational efficiency and effectiveness is a priority strategic goal which will be used to help ensure the continued growth and development of the MNGHA.
With this mindset, lets aim for a MORE EFFICIENT MNGHA.
Since the initial onslaught of Covid-19, the world continues to reel with its impact and forced many organizations to shift radically in the way they manage the operations. In order for MNGHA to move forward, it was of the essence to look for opportunities in this otherwise terrible situation and transition to non-traditional clinical practice.
We have witnessed how the Covid-19 pandemic transformed our workplace team dynamics. Nonetheless, the difficult situation has brought TEAMWORK into the spotlight as fundamental value in healthcare delivery. I am truly proud how MNGHA employees show leadership and collaborative skills, working past the limits of their comfort zone and extending their personal and clinical expertise to deliver a better bedside care.
Indeed, TEAMWORK is a TREASURE. It has bound us all in order to survive, thrive and succeed during these trying times. It is a commitment to excellence and correlates well with quality of care, Zero-Harm, effectiveness, efficiency, competitive productivity, engagement which are crucial for better clinical outcome. As one of MNGHA’s core values, teamwork has put more emphasis on collaboration, innovation (virtual work), collective decision-making and effective communication. Few relevant examples from our system is the continued successful implementation of the mandates of the Trauma Team, Surgical Care, Tumor Board, Home Healthcare and Emergency C-Section among others.
The results from the last Quality and Patient Safety Survey on Teamwork convey that we are within and sometimes exceed the benchmarks for team performance. This proves that we have a strong cultural pillar that brings all members to share, integrate and care to improve the standards of our healthcare delivery.
I would like to thank each one of you for this value that is woven into our organizational culture and fabric. Together, let us continue to encourage one another and foster interdisciplinary Teamwork in all clinical areas.
The success in fighting the crisis rely heavily on Teamwork; and with this engraved in our culture and values, all of us should continue to be more connected than ever before.
Thank you for supporting this important trademark of MNGHA.
COVID-19 overwhelmed the world, the healthcare systems and industries, and caused the world to experience unprecedented chain of events. We at MNGHA are not spared from those who suffer from the consequences of this crisis; and this leads me to share with you my thoughts while we are striving to overcome this pandemic. I am grateful of the exceptional teamwork you all showed during these times, the culture of flexibility, cooperation and accountability each and every one of you extended while we are maintaining the highest clinical standards of care and ensuring that everyone, both staff and patients are safe and protected at all times. All of us realize how challenging this must have been. Your commitment during these difficult days is exemplary. The delivery of care and the clinical excellence across our organization are always held at the highest regards. You are all setting an extraordinary example of commitment, professionalism, and unity, and I believe that we will arise from this crisis stronger, and so I count on you. The MNGHA post COVID-19 Vision has started by establishing few transformative important projects that will redesign, restructure, innovate various healthcare delivery programs like Medical De-escalation, I-Surge, Telehealth, TeleRadiology, iCare, Critical Care, Pharmaceutical Care, Maternal and Child Health, Preventive Care & Chronic Diseases Management and enhancement of Ambulatory Care and Primary Healthcare Centres, etc. In addition, allied health workforce training and skilling is an important mission that is currently studied and will be highly developed. We made sure that the digitalization and automation act as huge enabler and central to the change in order to continue the organization’s digital journey. Certainly, post-COVID 19 healthcare delivery and creative mindset will not be the same as pre-COVID 19. We have to show our resilience, as we innovate together.
