Dubai Health Authority to develop Certificate of Need
Friday, 06 28 2019, Category: Health, Country: U.A.E
The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) held a workshop with the private sector to receive their input and feedback prior to developing a 'Certificate of Need policies and guidelines.
The workshop took place during the Dubai Healthcare Investors' Forum that was held today at Hyatt Regency, Creek Hotel and was supported by Advention Business Partners and Taylor Wessing.
The CON guidelines will help further bolster the health sector and promote need-based investments so that there is equilibrium in the sector and to avoid imbalances in supply and demand in health services. The move also aims to provide patients with access to a wide range of medical specialties.
Last year, DHA launched a comprehensive Health Investment Guide, which provides in-depth details of demand, supply (which includes future supply) and gaps in the health sector.
The investment guide helps promote investment in need-based areas and supports investors. Now, adding a CON guidelines and policies will provide further clarity to investors and help them invest in areas of priority and need.
