The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is leading the way when it comes to digitizing the health care industry space keeping the consumer at the centre of the system. The way we receive services is going to change. Just look at the UAE’s Vision 2021, which includes improving health care for a smarter city. The National Unified Medical Record (NUMR) that is being implemented in Dubai will expand this central database function so that it can operate on a nationwide basis. This will make it easier for information to be shared not just within a single institution, but also with all institutions across the UAE.

We are honoured to be partnering with our clients in the UAE to facilitate their goal of achieving better quality health care as part of the nation’s Vision 2021 plan. We believe the UAE and Dubai have the capability to leapfrog many developed and developing countries in the health care space, thanks in part to a commitment to using technology to better the lives of its people.

Artificial intelligence will play a great role in changing and redefining the health care industry, and the UAE has already embraced its benefits when it comes to implementation in medical practices. Not only do such technologies free up time for practitioners, but they also promote knowledge sharing and more standardized recommendations and feedback, especially for routine ailments like the common cold. Essentially, it takes human error out of the treatment equation.

Here is the full interview published in The 2020 with Gulf News, one of the leading newspapers in the UAE.
