NABIDH: A Catalyst for Public Health Improvement

Healthcare in Dubai is evolving into a progressive and highly efficient system that puts patients at the centre of focus. Alongside the multiple benefits that NABIDH unfolds, the grand repository of medical data within NABIDH provides a wide range of possibilities for analytics, such as improving the quality of care and population health outcomes. Let’s find out how DHA’s NABIDH is revolutionizing the healthcare landscape in Dubai and how it plays a significant role in improving public health through its various capabilities. 

The NABIDH Opportunity for Elevating Public Health

DHA’s NABIDH policies are empowering physicians, patients, and facilities to create a connected healthcare environment that’s free of hassles, errors, and delays. The NABIDH vision is to provide timely and best quality care to the people of Dubai by creating a more informed, better-connected healthcare community. While this saves a great amount of time and improves the quality of care that patients receive, let us also imagine what this large-scale connected and collaborative healthcare ecosystem can accomplish- An ecosystem of 12.6 million unified medical records, nearly 56000 connected clinicians and 1224 connected facilities- This presents a huge opportunity to use the wealth of medical data from NABIDH for public welfare. 

The Role of NABIDH in Optimizing Public Health

NABIDH is a trusted health information exchange platform that facilitates better care coordination, collaboration, waste reduction, and data security, supporting evidence-based health improvement. Moreover, medical data from public and private healthcare facilities and clinics across Dubai are available in NABIDH, ready to use, analyze, and draw inferences from. This provides a gold standard for public health and well-being. This wealth of accurate and reliable medical data can be instrumental in shaping and formulating public health policies. Here’s how:

  1. Medical data available over NABIDH offer valuable insights about population health and identify areas that need attention or intervention.
  2. Data trends in NABIDH can help detect disease outbreaks at a very early stage. This allows public health officials to intervene and prevent the spread of illness.
  3. Health trends identified using the NABIDH database can help formulate targeted health campaigns and spread awareness among people.
  4. NABIDH data may indicate the health needs of the population, based on which public health authorities can efficiently allocate resources to make sure everyone receives the care they need.
  5. NABIDH’s gold mine of health data facilitates data-driven decision-making with regard to the formulation of public health policies, making sure these policies are effective in delivering the desired outcome.  

NABIDH capabilities are therefore not just limited to streamlining hospital workflows and personalizing patient care. They extend beyond hospitals, to aiding the government with valuable insights to improve public health and provide a safe, secure, well-connected healthcare environment where facilities deliver the most superior healthcare and the public receives the best care possible.
