Le KFSH&RC dévoile son approche d’avant-garde pour l’amélioration de l’expérience thérapeutique des patients à l’occasion de l’exposition mondiale sur la santé

RIYAD, Arabie saoudite, 27 oct. 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — À l’occasion de l’exposition mondiale sur la santé 2023 à Riyad, le King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre (KFSH&RC) présente son approche avancée permettant d’améliorer le parcours de soins des patients. En exploitant les solutions numériques de pointe en matière de soins de santé, l’hôpital a mis l’accent sur le rôle de ces outils dans l’amélioration des résultats en matière de soins de santé et de l’efficacité opérationnelle dans divers domaines médicaux.

Le KFSH&RC a réalisé des progrès substantiels dans la rationalisation du processus d’admission des patients grâce au service « Ehalat ». Cette plateforme automatisée simplifie les orientations médicales et favorise la collaboration avec les entités de soins de santé publiques et privées. En outre, elle permet aux utilisateurs de soumettre des rapports médicaux, de compiler des données personnelles et d’accéder à leurs antécédents médicaux, le tout dans le cadre d’un service unifié, éliminant ainsi la nécessité de se rendre en personne à l’hôpital. Cela simplifie non seulement l’évaluation de l’état d’un patient et de son éligibilité à un traitement, mais permet également un suivi en temps réel et des mises à jour sur les applications.

Les patients peuvent désormais suivre l’évolution de leur traitement à distance grâce à l’application mobile « Altakhassusi », qui leur offre un accès sécurisé à leur dossier médical. L’application permet aux patients de consulter les résultats des examens radiologiques et de laboratoire, de prendre facilement rendez-vous, d’assister à des séances de suivi virtuel avec leur médecin et même d’évaluer l’efficacité de leur traitement. En outre, elle améliore le processus de renouvellement des ordonnances, du matériel médical et des besoins nutritionnels, facilitant ainsi la communication avec l’équipe médicale et l’hôpital.

Le KFSH&RC s’attache à offrir une expérience thérapeutique de haute qualité avec une automatisation à chaque étape. Cette approche permet aux patients d’économiser du temps et des efforts, et améliore la prise de décision médicale grâce à des méthodes et des modèles de soins d’avant-garde qui s’appuient sur les progrès rapides des innovations dans le domaine de la santé numérique. Ces capacités permettent une intégration transparente de diverses technologies médicales, consolidant les résultats cliniques, les documents et les données médicales. Cela va des notes chirurgicales aux soins post-opératoires, en assurant un flux d’informations fluide, en améliorant l’efficacité des soins et en les personnalisant pour répondre aux besoins uniques de chaque patient.

Le KFSH&RC est mondialement reconnu pour ses services de santé spécialisés exceptionnels et ses innovations révolutionnaires.

Il sert de plateforme de collaboration entre les communautés saoudiennes et mondiales de la santé, y compris les fabricants et fournisseurs régionaux et internationaux.

Amidst Polarizing Global Trends, U.S. B Schools Experience Domestic Demand Rebound

GMAC’s annual survey reveals new shifts in the underlying expectations of applicants

RESTON, Va., Oct. 27, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Across the globe, total applications to graduate business school programs in 2023 dipped by approximately five percent. However, more programs than last year reported growth in their applications—indicating that the drop in applications was not felt evenly, according to an annual survey released today by the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC). GMAC, a global association representing leading business schools, published findings from the 2023 survey results to provide data and insights to better understand current trends in applications to graduate management education (GME) programs.

Specifically, the decline in applications have centered around those to more selective programs, driving a dip in total global applications while their somewhat selective counterparts reported growth in their applications. Many candidates are still interested in more traditional, competitive full-time programs, but online, hybrid, or evening options were much more likely to report application growth. Interestingly, applicants seeking out top-ranked programs may not necessarily be looking for the same flexibility as the others, but many candidates are more willing to sacrifice prestige for flexibility.

“As post-pandemic attitudes toward work continue shifting and preferences for educational offerings continue evolving, the business school community as a whole is quickly adapting,” said Joy Jones, CEO of GMAC. “From degreed programs to new certificates, concentrations, executive education, and micro-credentials, there is a wealth of options appealing to a wide spectrum of candidates in different stages of career and life. It serves as a testament to how business schools rise to the challenge to meet the needs of today’s business school aspirants who will undoubtedly benefit from graduate business education.”

Other Key Findings:

U.S. and regional trends reflect shifts in international and domestic applications.

While flexibility in delivery methods played an important role in driving the global application trends, in the United States, the international and domestic compositions of program volume turned out to be the key drivers behind the growth seen among their GME programs. After several challenging years with the domestic pipeline—especially after applications leveled off following the pandemic—more U.S. programs reported growth in domestic applications than declines in 2023. In fact, besides the increase seen in 2020 related to the pandemic, the number of U.S. programs reporting application growth reached a decade-long high in domestic applications.

While more than half of the programs in the U.S. experienced growth despite a small dip in overall applications, their counterparts in Europe, Asia, and the Pacific Islands were not as fortunate. Most European programs have faced declining applications over the past three years, with a significant drop (13 percent) in total international applications in 2023. Similarly, programs in Asia and the Pacific Islands have experienced two years of relative application declines, but with a pronounced drop (8 percent) in total domestic applications in 2023.

Applications among women continue to stagnate across degree types and regions.

Over the past five years, the share of female applicants in the U.S., Europe, Asia, the Pacific Islands, Canada and Latin America has hovered around two-fifths. Even though GMAC’s Prospective Students Survey indicates that women tend to be more interested in flexible, online, and hybrid programs, the share of women applying to online, hybrid, weekend, and evening programs is still roughly two-fifths. One silver lining lies in the share of women applicants in the executive MBA. While it is comparatively smallest at 32 percent, most of these programs saw growth in their applications from female candidates in 2023.

“It is encouraging to see more women in executive positions pursue advanced business education that could help strengthen them as leaders in the workplace,” said Ana María Zermeño Padilla, director of academic experience and operations of EGADE Business School at Tecnológico de Monterrey and a GMAC Board member. “There is still much work to be done to appeal to women, especially those earlier in their careers, to take advantage of what graduate business degrees, particularly those with online and flexible modules, could offer.”

Applications from underrepresented U.S. populations hit post-pandemic peak and top pre-pandemic levels.

Since 2014, most U.S. GME programs reported either stability or growth in their applications from underrepresented U.S. populations. Similar to broader U.S. and global trends, applications from these candidates surged alongside the pandemic until 2021 and 2022 when a majority of programs reported declines in applications as the pandemic-related increases leveled off. This year’s survey result, however, shows that 47 percent of U.S. programs reported growth in applications from underrepresented U.S. populations, rebounding by a whopping 18 percentage point from a 10-year low in 2022 and even higher than the pre-pandemic years.

“In the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on race-conscious admissions, business schools are reexamining their recruitment efforts and admissions strategies to continue enrolling a student body that reflects the diversity of the country and their pool of applicants,” said Sabrina White, vice president of school and industry engagement at GMAC. “As the graduate business school community prepares for impending shifts in how U.S. programs evaluate the experiences of applicants from underrepresented racial and ethnic backgrounds, we hope sharing the data reported by schools over the past decade can help serve as a foundation for how current efforts have – or have not – been effective.”

About the Survey

GMAC’s Applications Trends Survey is the largest and most widely cited survey of its kind, serving the graduate management education community for the past quarter of a century.

Dans un contexte de polarisation des tendances mondiales, les écoles de commerce américaines connaissent une recrudescence de la demande intérieure

L’enquête annuelle du GMAC a révélé de nouveaux changements quant aux attentes sous-jacentes des candidats

RESTON, État de Virginie, 27 oct. 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Le nombre total de candidatures à des programmes d’écoles de commerce en 2023 a baissé d’environ cinq pour cent dans le monde entier. Toutefois, selon l’enquête annuelle publiée aujourd’hui par le Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), davantage de programmes par rapport à l’année dernière ont fait état d’une augmentation de leurs candidatures, ce qui indique que le recul des candidatures n’a pas affecté tous les programmes de manière homogène, Le GMAC, une association mondiale représentant les plus grandes écoles de commerce, a publié les résultats de l’enquête 2023 afin de fournir des données et des réflexions qui permettront de mieux comprendre les tendances actuelles des candidatures aux programmes d’enseignement supérieur en gestion (GME).

La baisse des candidatures concerne principalement les programmes plus sélectifs, ce qui a entraîné une diminution du nombre total de candidatures au niveau mondial, tandis que les programmes moins sélectifs ont enregistré une augmentation du nombre de candidatures. De nombreux candidats sont toujours intéressés par les programmes traditionnels et compétitifs à temps plein. Toutefois, les options en ligne, hybrides ou les cours du soir sont beaucoup plus susceptibles de connaître une augmentation du nombre de candidatures. Il est intéressant de noter que les candidats qui choisissent les programmes les mieux classés ne recherchent pas nécessairement la même flexibilité que les autres, mais de nombreux candidats sont davantage prêts à sacrifier le prestige d’un programme pour gagner en flexibilité.

« Alors que les tendances post-pandémie dans le monde du travail et les préférences en matière d’offres académiques continuent d’évoluer, la communauté des écoles de commerce dans son ensemble s’adapte rapidement », a déclaré Joy Jones, PDG du GMAC. « Qu’il s’agisse des programmes octroyant une licence, des nouveaux certificats, en passant par les concentrations, la formation des cadres et les micro-crédits, il existe une multitude d’options susceptibles d’intéresser un grand nombre de candidats, quelle que soit leur situation professionnelle ou personnelle. Cela témoigne de la façon dont les écoles de commerce relèvent le défi consistant à répondre aux besoins des candidats aux écoles de commerce d’aujourd’hui, qui bénéficieront sans nul doute d’une formation supérieure dans le domaine des affaires. »

Autres résultats importants :

Les tendances américaines et régionales reflètent l’évolution des candidatures nationales et internationales.

Bien que la flexibilité des méthodes d’enseignement ait joué un rôle important comme moteur des tendances mondiales en matière de candidatures, aux États-Unis, la configuration internationale et nationale du volume des programmes s’est avérée être le principal vecteur de la croissance observée dans les programmes GME. Après plusieurs années difficiles pour le secteur national, en particulier après la stabilisation des candidatures à la suite de la pandémie, les programmes américains ont enregistré une croissance des candidatures nationales au lieu d’une baisse en 2023. En effet, outre l’augmentation observée en 2020 en raison de la pandémie, le nombre de programmes américains faisant état d’une augmentation du nombre de dossiers de candidature a atteint son plus haut niveau depuis dix ans pour ce qui est des candidatures nationales.

Bien que plus de la moitié des programmes américains aient connu une croissance malgré une légère baisse du nombre total de candidatures, les programmes d’Europe, d’Asie et des îles du Pacifique n’ont pas eu la même chance. La plupart des programmes européens ont été confrontés à une baisse des candidatures au cours des trois dernières années, ce qui s’est traduit par une chute importante (13 %) du nombre total de candidatures internationales en 2023. Les programmes d’Asie et des îles du Pacifique ont également connu deux années consécutives de baisse relative du nombre de candidatures, avec toutefois une baisse marquée (8 %) du nombre total de candidatures nationales en 2023.

Les candidatures chez les femmes continuent de stagner, quels que soient le type de cursus et la région.

Au cours des cinq dernières années, la part des candidatures féminines aux États-Unis, en Europe, en Asie, dans les îles du Pacifique, au Canada et en Amérique latine a fluctué autour de deux cinquièmes. Même si l’enquête du GMAC sur les futurs étudiants indique que les femmes ont tendance à être plus intéressées par les programmes flexibles, en ligne et hybrides, la part des femmes qui postulent à des programmes en ligne, hybrides, le week-end et le soir représente toujours environ deux cinquièmes. La proportion de femmes candidates au MBA pour cadres reste une lueur d’espoir. Bien qu’il s’agisse d’un pourcentage relativement faible de 32 %, la plupart de ces programmes ont affiché une augmentation du nombre de candidatures féminines en 2023.

« C’est encourageant de voir que davantage de femmes occupant des postes de cadres se tournent vers une formation commerciale poussée qui peut les aider à renforcer leur rôle de leaders sur le lieu de travail », a déclaré Ana María Zermeño Padilla, directrice de l’expérience académique et des opérations de l’école de commerce EGADE à Tecnológico de Monterrey et membre du conseil d’administration du GMAC. « Il reste encore beaucoup à faire pour inciter les femmes, en particulier celles qui sont au début de leur carrière, à tirer parti de ce que peuvent offrir les diplômes d’études supérieures en gestion, notamment ceux qui comportent des modules en ligne et flexibles. »

Les candidatures des populations américaines sous-représentées ont atteint un niveau record après la pandémie et dépassent les niveaux d’avant la pandémie.

Depuis 2014, la plupart des programmes GME américains ont connu une stabilité ou une croissance des candidatures des populations américaines sous-représentées. À l’instar des tendances générales observées aux États-Unis et dans le monde, les candidatures de ces candidats ont augmenté parallèlement à la pandémie jusqu’en 2021 et 2022, période à laquelle la majorité des programmes ont enregistré une baisse des candidatures alors que les augmentations liées à la pandémie s’étaient stabilisées. Les résultats de l’enquête de cette année montrent toutefois que 47 % des programmes américains ont connu une augmentation du nombre de candidatures des populations américaines sous-représentées, ce qui correspond à un rebond de 18 points par rapport au niveau le plus bas des dix dernières années, atteint en 2022, et à un niveau encore plus élevé par rapport aux années précédant la pandémie.

« Suite à l’arrêt de la Cour suprême des États-Unis sur les admissions fondées sur la race, les écoles de commerce revoient leurs efforts en matière de recrutement et leurs stratégies d’admission afin de continuer à intégrer un corps étudiant qui reflète la diversité du pays et de leur bassin de candidats », a déclaré Sabrina White, vice-présidente de l’engagement des écoles et du secteur d’activité chez GMAC. « Alors que la communauté des écoles de commerce se prépare à des changements imminents dans la manière dont les programmes américains évaluent l’expérience des candidats issus de minorités raciales et ethniques, nous espérons que le partage des données recueillies par les écoles au cours de la dernière décennie servira de base à l’évaluation de l’efficacité, ou de l’inefficacité, des efforts déployés à l’heure actuelle. »

À propos de l’enquête

L’enquête du GMAC sur les tendances relatives aux candidatures est l’enquête la plus importante et la plus largement citée de ce type. En effet, elle est utilisée par la communauté de l’enseignement supérieur en gestion depuis plus de vingt-cinq ans. L’enquête de 2023 a recueilli des données sur les dossiers de candidature reçus par les programmes de GME pour l’année universitaire 2023-2024. Entre juin et août, 893 programmes de 247 écoles de commerce dans le monde ont répondu à l’enquête. Les programmes participants couvrent 32 pays, dont 37 États américains et le district de Columbia, et reflètent la diversité croissante de l’offre mondiale en matière de programmes GME. L’échantillon total comprend 413 programmes de MBA, 456 programmes de master de commerce, cinq programmes de troisième cycle (PGP) et 19 programmes de doctorat. Pour plus d’informations sur les programmes participants de cette année, voir la section du rapport consacrée au profil des participants.

Huge market opportunity available through AfCFTA: Iipumbu

Minister of Industrialisation and Trade, Lucia Iipumbu on Friday stated that there is a huge market opportunity opening up through the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) and the nation needs to prepare itself to be ready for trading.

The minister made these remarks during the occasion of the official opening of the 16th edition of the Helao Nafidi business expo which was celebrated under the theme ‘Innovative to unveil hidden treasure’.

In a statement issued by MIT on Friday, Iipumbu noted that Angola must also be seen as one of the country’s key trading partners, not only at the level of informal trading but also through tangible value chain development in manufacturing and sourcing of inputs in manufacturing.

In August this year, the minister attended the Eenhana expo and was impressed by the level of value-addition initiatives being undertaken to add value to local agriculture.

These include mostly raw materials such as marula, kalahari melons, and eembe which are value added to produce jams, juices and other complementary products, she noted.

“The Helao Nafidi business expo is a clear demonstration of the zeal of entrepreneurship and the creative minds of our communities. This is a platform where local businesses, of all sizes, come together to showcase their innovations in the form of products and services,” she said.

Furthermore, the ministry is aware of various challenges facing traders in this town such as the lack of sufficient trading platforms and open markets which forces most traders to sell along the streets in contravention of the town’s rules, Iipumbu noted.

“MIT is therefore committed and considering the requests advanced by the town council to assist with the construction of open markets when financial resources allow,” the minister said.

Women under-representation in National Council a concern: Sioka

Minister of Gender Equality, Poverty Eradication and Social Welfare (MGEPESW) Doreen Sioka has expressed concern over the under-representation of women in the National Council and emphasised the need to put in place strategies to improve the situation.

“Though we are doing well in the National Assembly, the picture is different with the National Council, where statistics show that women are currently underrepresented with only six women out of 46,” Sioka said.

According to the minister, the number of women needs to change drastically for Namibia to achieve 50/50 representation as per the SADC Protocol on Gender and Development.

Sioka was speaking on Friday during the Capacity Building Workshop on Women in Politics and Decision Making taking place in Swakopmund, organised by MGEPESW and the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (IDEA).

“Namibia cannot continue to speak about gender equality and equal representation of men and women in politics and decision-making without involving women as they play a crucial role in addressing gender issues in law-making, representation and oversight,” she expressed.

Sioka noted that this can however only be done if women are equipped with the requisite skills that are necessary for their self-confidence, collective advancement as well as advanced oversight roles.

“We all see that in cases where parties do not get many seats, women are left out and only men make it to Parliament, so let us look at our political party constitutions and manifestos and propose strategies for mainstreaming gender within the political party system,” she said.

The objectives of the three-day capacity-building workshop include the training, mentoring and coaching of women from various political parties as well as those in decision-making positions.

It also aims to strengthen the capacity of women in politics and decision-making at all levels.

Deputy Minister of Gender Equality, Poverty Eradication and Social Welfare Bernadette Jagger during her opening remarks said the workshop is an opportune platform to identify sustainable measures and good practices to promote gender equality and women’s political empowerment within political parties.

Poor communication linked to youth unemployment in Omaheke

Young people in Omaheke have expressed concern that the lack of proper communication contributes to youth unemployment in the region.

They raised the concern during a public engagement on the motion on youth unemployment spearheaded by the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Human Resources and Community Development, on Friday at the Epako community hall in Gobabis.

In the meeting the youth highlighted that there is no reliable communication channel that informs young people about opportunities, saying this contributes immensely to the unemployment in the region.

Another issue that came out is the skills gap, as what is being taught in formal education does not consider what the industries need, leaving many skilled young people in the region unemployed.

Jacob Hikuama, a youth activist and a young farmer highlighted the need for a vocational training centre to acquire the needed skills and ultimately change the status quo of youth unemployment in the region.

“If you go around the country you will see vocational training centres, but we do not have them here in the Omaheke Region. We have Farm Du Plessis with a government building standing idle there, why can the government not use that for a vocational centre, instead, because there is nothing currently happening there,” he suggested.

The youth went on to ask for flexible requirements when they apply for loans from banks especially the Development Bank of Namibia and Agribank, as according to them this will curb the issue of unemployment.

They further want the government to reconsider the requirements for the new promising green hydrogen scholarship programme which they say is only targeting those with certain criteria instead of all young people with or without qualifications to go and study.

Elifas Dingara, the vice-chairperson of the standing committee said he is excited that young people have participated in this consultation, and promised that the committee will make sure that the report comes out as soon as possible and the implementation is fast-tracked.

“What we are basically doing is to get the contribution from the Namibian people so that we assist the parliament to make informed decisions, to make the law on youth unemployment. The committee will do all it can to ensure that all the implementation of these reports are effective and efficient,” he said.
