DHA to raise awareness of e-health services
Dubai Health Authority (DHA) will exhibit is online capabilities at GITEX
Dubai Health Authority (DHA) is exhibiting at GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK in an effort to raise awareness of its e-services. It will promote a broad lineup of services, including DHA Smartphone App, DHA Windows 8 App, Community Health System, DHA Smart Desk eInspection for Sheryan and Sheryan Dashboards.
Sheryan is an online health licensing system. With it, healthcare professionals can apply for a licence to practice in Dubai any time, from over 100 locations in the world. This online portal is used by Dubai’s healthcare professionals for several purposes, including renewal of licenses and updating their details.
The DHA has designed a DHA app, inspired by Windows 8 and the app is compatible with all platforms — Apple iOS, Google Android, Blackberry and Windows Mobile, among others. The DHA app provides several services including a list of health services, details of visiting doctors, and the ability to search for information based on location and speciality.
Users can also view test results and register as a blood donor. One of the most useful services, according to DHA, is the vaccination synchronisation option, which allows users to track vaccination plans for children. DHA patients who download the application can also view medical evaluation records and related prescriptions, x-rays, lab results and more.
DHA believes its initiatives can help revolutionise the manner in which healthcare is delivered in the emirate. DHA, created in June 2007, provides strategic oversight for the complete health sector in Dubai and strives to enhance private sector engagement.
The DHA also focuses on providing services through its own healthcare facilities, including hospitals (Latifa, Dubai and Rashid), speciality centres (e.g. the Dubai Diabetes Center) and DHA primary health centres spread throughout Dubai.
