DHA’s mission to transform healthcare in Dubai is driven by three primary objectives- advancing public health and prevention, ensuring universal access to high-value healthcare, and fostering healthcare innovation and research. And to strengthen this mission, DHA has formulated a series of policies and regulations that not only steer healthcare facilities towards compliance, but also guide you towards improving health outcomes and patient experience. NABIDH compliance is therefore not just about NABIDH integration or using a unified health information platform. It’s more importantly about driving your healthcare facility towards sustained excellence in delivering the highest quality of care to patients. Here’s how:
How NABIDH Compliance Elevates Your Facility’s Capabilities
NABIDH is instrumental in unifying healthcare in Dubai and promoting a well-informed and interconnected healthcare community. But this aside, it also plays a huge part in transforming the way your facility leverages the power of patient health information. The by-products of NABIDH compliance are manifold, offering several benefits for your healthcare facility, including:
- Instant Access to Comprehensive Patient Health Information- NABIDH integration enables medical practitioners and care providers in your facility to instantly retrieve detailed records of a patient’s health, giving them a holistic view of their medical history. This facilitates a deeper understanding of the patient’s medical issues and helps formulate more effective treatment plans.
- Informed Decision-Making, Minimizing Medical Errors- With a comprehensive view of your patients’ medical history enabled by NABIDH, care providers in your facility are better equipped to make more informed decisions thereby reducing the possibility of medical errors and ensuring overall patient safety. This in turn wins over patients’ trust and confidence fostering more efficient and effective care.
- Timely and Accurate Diagnosis for Optimal Health Outcomes- More often than not, treatment is hindered by the inability to accurately diagnose a medical problem at the right time. However, with NABIDH compliance, care providers in your facility have seamless access to health records of patients. This enables timely and precise diagnosis, resulting in better care and improved outcomes.
- Personalized Treatment Plans for Enhanced Patient Experience- The ‘one-size-fits-all’ model does not work for healthcare. Treatment plans have to be tailored to each patient to ensure that they receive the best possible and most suitable line of care in your facility. NABIDH compliance enables you to leverage the power of health information to provide a completely customized line of treatment to patients. This not only improves the outcome of treatment but also boosts patients’ confidence in your system and enhances their overall experience.
- Elimination of Redundant Tests- Since the NABIDH platform allows you to get a comprehensive overview of patients’ health, it eliminates the need for unnecessary tests. This results in cost savings and minimizes patient inconvenience.
- Secure Health Information Exchange- Unlike other health data platforms, NABIDH is built on a secure system of information exchange, fortified by several authorization and authentication procedures and protocols. This prevents unauthorized access to health information. NABIDH compliance thus ensures that patient health information remains secure at all times.
- Uncompromised Patient Data Accuracy and Integrity- Since patient health data stored in NABIDH is governed by stringent NABIDH policies, there is hardly any chance of health data being tampered with. Hence, the accuracy and integrity of health information remains intact. This gives an extra edge to the healthcare professionals in your facility, since they can leverage the unmatched reliability of well-protected health data.
- Easy Follow-Ups for Continuous Care- Patient care goes much beyond one-time treatments and interventions. The follow-up process is equally significant in improving long-term outcomes. NABIDH integration allows you to streamline the follow-up process. It facilitates monitoring and simplifies the adjustment of treatment plans to enable continuous and effective care in the long-run.
NABIDH compliance should therefore be viewed as a means to providing holistic care to patients, rather than as a demanding regulatory mandate. Although NABIDH integration may seem like an arduous task for your healthcare facility, it is important to recognize it as an essential step towards promoting better health and achieving long-term excellence in healthcare delivery.
