Dzulkefly Ahmad, Malaysia’s minister of health, says that even if an organization has a good program and system in place, digitizing healthcare will not succeed if there is no clinical buy-in underpinned by training.

Dr Ahmad was named the Health Minister on Friday May 18 2018 in the new Cabinet of Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. He is a respected leader in the Kuala Selangor parliamentary constituency where he is the MP.

The 62-year-old Parti Amanah Negara strategic director holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Birmingham and a Master of Science degree from the University of Surrey, United Kingdom.

He received his doctorate in Medical Science (Toxicology) from the Imperial College (St Mary’s Hospital Medical School) in 1993.
