As Saudi Arabia’s healthcare sector has embarked on a transformative journey to build a world-class system centred on patient care, which is a key directive of Saudi Vision 2030, some challenges as can be expected have surfaced. This is normal during a transitional phase and as a leading healthcare administrative career skills training academy, we see this as a time to offer evolved services and meet market needs during an unprecedented time.
It is essential to equip healthcare practitioners and providers with highly sought-after knowledge and skills in Revenue Cycle Management (RCM), Medical Coding, Clinical Documentation. The efficient implementation of these imperative skills bridges the financial gap between payers and providers, reduces claim denials, and improves revenues resulting in operational efficiency.
Circling back to KSA, healthcare providers are in need of trained personnel, and filling roles has become a challenge due to a lack of knowledgeable staff. As a result, accredited medical billing and administration roles have become sound and stable career choices as the Kingdom’s healthcare space evolves.

KSA’s healthcare system was about to embark on a new path as the Ministry of Health (MOH) began planning to privatise the healthcare sector and required a localised process to enhance its healthcare system. This change also required the creation of a national coding system where the Council of Health Insurance (CHI) and the Saudi Health Council (SHC) were brought in to implement coding requirements for the new private system.
Naturally, the country’s current and future healthcare workforce would have to expand upon current skill sets or learn a new approach to operate within the new system.
We viewed this development as an opportunity to expand and become a regional RCM and health information management (HIM) career development leader. Equipped with intel from the UAE, we foresaw the demand for a proficient and world-class workforce in Saudi Arabia and to support that need, we designed internationally accredited, customised courses for the Kingdom based on the new Saudi Billing System (SBS). Moreover, there are course options for medical professionals and those with no medical background looking to make a career change.
