The Ministry of Health and Prevention, MoHAP, in collaboration with the Ministry of Presidential Affairs, Dubai Healthcare City, and relevant health authorities, has recently launched the first advanced digital platform to store the data for health, pharmaceutical government and private facilities and health practitioners.
The blockchain-based platform aims to raise the efficiency of MoHAP and other health authorities’ smart health services, in line with the outcomes of the annual meetings of the UAE government.
The announcement came during MoHAP’s participation in the Arab Health, Dubai, January 27 – 30, which is being held at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
The new platform is part of MoHAP’s plans for incorporating the Artificial Intelligence (AI) by 100% into health services, pursuant to the UAE Artificial Intelligence Strategy, one of the pioneering projects of the UAE Centennial 2071.
Based on the best technologies and high-end equipment and owing to the comprehensiveness of its benefits provided to all members of society, the new project is forming a significant shift in the health sector. It will help facilitate the search for health facilities and its licensed medical and technical personnel.
Additionally, the project would help provide ease, efficiency, and effectiveness of work for health inspectors, besides encouraging medical tourism by providing easy access to high-quality integrated information on health care in the country.
