The new platform forms part of a wider plan to incorporate artificial intelligence technologies into 100% of all health services

The UAE’s Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) has teamed up with the Ministry of Presidential Affairs, Dubai Healthcare City and a number of other entities to launch a blockchain-based digital platform to store medical data, it was announced on Sunday.

The new platform forms part of a wider plan to incorporate artificial intelligence technologies into 100 percent of all health services.

According to MoHAP, the new platform will help streamline the operations of health facilities and assist medical professionals when they need to inquire about a particular medication, manufacturer, substance, prices, approved agents and methods of use.

Additionally, the project will help encourage medical tourism by providing easy access to high-quality integrated information on healthcare in the UAE.

“The transition to AI technologies is in line with the directives of the wise leadership to make the UAE a leading global model in the proactive confrontation of future challenges and focus on smart health care,” said Dr. Amin Hussein Al Amiri, assistant undersecretary of MoHAP’s public health policy and licenses.

Dr. Lubna Al Shaali, the director of the public health policy department, added that the platform “would help secure an unchangeable, decentralised and encrypted database with high-security protection to verify data validity and reliability.”
