New app from Dubai Health Authority allows GPs to consult remotely

The Dubai Health Authority, the government organization that oversees the country’s healthcare sector, announced this week the release of new virtual health software aimed at improving the quality of care in the area. The app is being launched as part of the Dubai Future Accelerators, an ‘intensive’ nine week program, aimed at helping public and private sector organizations perform research and improve their services. According to a report by Computer Weekly, the organizations, businesses, and startups involved will be “using Dubai as a living test bed to co-create solutions for global and local challenges”.

The new Dubai Health Authority uses Artificial Intelligence technology to provide remote GP consultations. This new strategy is expected to allow more patients to be diagnosed and treated, while placing less stress on doctors.

Computer Weekly reports: “The DHA said consultations are available around the clock and the app syncs with 400 devices, including Apple and Android products, so that information about the patient’s sleep pattern, exercise routine, number of calories burned and daily activity is recorded. This information is available to the GP along with the patient history at the time of consultations.”

The application is expected to soon implement an emotional analysis feature, in order to detect when a patient is giving an inaccurate report of their symptoms.

Mohammed Al Redha, director of the executive office for organisational transformation at the Dubai Health Authority, stated in a press release: “Technology has the power to improve the efficiencies of the overall healthcare sector, improve healthcare management and bring down the cost of care.”  

Also as part of the Dubai Future Accelerators, the Dubai Health Authority has partnered with 3D printing firms to bring the technology into its dental and prosthetics sectors. Khulood Al Ali, specialist at the executive office for organisational transformation at the DHA, stated that “3D-printed artificial legs were used to provide amputees with a new lease of life.”

Of the project as a whole, Ali Ali said “It’s important to understand the benefits of the Dubai Future Accelerators initiative. It provides us with a platform to think of groundbreaking ideas that can benefit patients and the healthcare sector in general.”
