The doors have opened on the 2018 Arab Health conference in Dubai, with more than 4000 companies from 150 countries in attendance at the exhibition this week.
First held in 1975, Arab Health attracts more than 100,000 visitors each year, and has hosted some pioneering healthcare technology over the last 43 years. This year smart health applications are playing a lead role - with Dubai’s Health Authority set to announce some important partnerships in the field.
A new system is set to be introduced in the Emirate which will track patient satisfaction throughout all DHA hospitals and health centres. As well as this all of the DHA’s new ‘smart apps’ will be showcased, including the new ‘Tifli’ system - which helps guide mothers-to-be through all stages of pregnancy and parenthood until their child has reached the age of five.
Tifli is far from the only DHA application however, with a range now available including ‘Dammi’, which aims to increase the number of blood donors in the Emirate, The DHA Formulary Application, which provides medics and pharmacists with information on medicine, and ‘Hayati’ which allows the country’s increasing number of diabetics to manage their condition remotely.
Other attendees at this year’s summit, including Dubai Healthcare City and the Health Authority Abu Dhabi, are set to make announcements about further developments in robotics and three-dimensional printing.
Healthcare remains a key focus in the Gulf, as the region attempts to move on from an oil-centric economy. For more information on how to secure a move to Arabia, and for the latest job alerts, register on our website today. A dream move could be closer than you might imagine.
