The state of healthcare IT in the Middle East

A reader, Rami Yousef, wrote me yesterday asking the following:

What are your views on the healthcare industry in the Middle East, are they moving in the right direction in converting their clinics to e-clinics?

Since I live and work in the USA I know this market well but don’t really have much of an idea about how the Middle East healthcare IT industry is faring. I know I have many readers around the world, and based on Google Analytics, some of you are in the Middle East. Could anyone else answer Rami’s question here? I, too, am very much interested in how healthcare IT is being used outside the USA.
