Abu Dhabi, UAE: e& enterprise iot & ai, a specialist company within e& enterprise (part of e&), today announced its collaboration with Emirates Health Services (EHS) to develop and advance technologies and initiatives to improve the overall customer experience in healthcare.
Through this agreement, e& enterprise iot & ai and Emirates Health Services (EHS) will work together to explore cloud-based enterprise system and platforms for community health programmes, specifically focused on healthcare seekers in the Northern Emirates. The two industry leaders featured the ‘Digital Clinic’ at the Arab Health Exhibition and Conference 2023, one of the largest healthcare events in the region.
Mubaraka Ibrahim, Acting Chief Information Officer for Emirates Health Services, said: “Our collaboration with e& enterprise allows us to launch smart health projects that align with the goals of the UAE Centennial 2071. We strive to adopt advanced technologies and use them to improve our healthcare services, and we are delighted to working with e& enterprise iot & ai - a leader in the field - to showcase these breakthroughs to experts, decision makers and stakeholders here at Arab Health 2023."
The EHS was established with the aim of improving the efficiency of the federal health sector in the UAE by providing first-class healthcare and treatment services, taking preventive measures and combating epidemics and diseases, and ensuring the sustainable development of the healthcare sector.
"We are delighted to be working with EHS to bring the latest digital technologies and innovations of the future to healthcare," said Alberto Araque, CEO of e& enterprise iot and ai. "The 'Digital Clinic' demonstration illustrates how technology can revolutionise the way healthcare is delivered globally. With the population and number of patients with chronic diseases increasing, hospitals and the healthcare sector are looking for long-term solutions to ease the pressure on healthcare systems. This showcase illustrates how technology and healthcare delivery can be seamlessly integrated to improve both the hospital and patient experience."
The aim of the digital clinic is to improve access and quality of care through the integration of digital technologies into clinical workflows, evidence-based care and shared decision making in a sustainable and scalable way. The Digital Clinic is a type of health facility that uses digital technologies to provide medical services remotely.
Services provided by the clinic may include virtual consultations with health care providers, online appointment booking, and the use of digital medical records and other health-related technologies. Digital clinics allow patients to receive medical care remotely, which can be particularly beneficial for those who live in rural or remote areas, or for those with mobility issues that make it difficult to visit a traditional clinic. In addition, digital clinics can also help reduce the burden on traditional clinics and hospitals by providing an alternative for non-urgent medical problems.
