Director of Central Department for Initial Care in Ministry of Health, Dr. Rihab Al-Watyan announced a new process for receiving applications of sick leaves and medical reports via an app on smartphones.
Sick employees will need to go to the clinic where they will receive a username and password. They must use an app on the smartphones to send the application for a medical report or a sick leave.
The sick leave will be authenticated via a QR code, and the signature of a doctor or the head of the clinic will not be required. Dr Al-Watyan indicated that this app is currently in the testing phase for a period of three months in clinics of Capital area as well as Amiri Hospital, adding that creation of an automated interface with Civil Service Commission (CSC) and all relevant institutions in Kuwait is underway.
