In January, the MoH and Du signed an at Arab Health Exhibition 2020 for smart healthcare services.
“Right now, there is a great burden on the hospital resources,” Marwan Bin Dalmook, Senior Vice President for ICT commercial and business development-enterprise solutions at Du, said.
Virtual hospitals provide remote care to patients based at home, or in another location, via smart monitors or AI devices. Healthcare professionals are able to see and communicate with their patients, and gain access to their data, resulting in efficient diagnosis and treatment processes.
A full virtual hospital would bring many aspects of healthcare together, including robotics, remote surgery and others.
It also provides the opportunity to make healthcare accessible for all – providing urgent advice to those around the world who are based in remote or rural areas.
Virtual hospitals save costs and dissolve geographical barriers. It’s only a matter of time before UAE residents will be able to have access to the best in global medicine at their fingertips.
