Dubai’s Hospital of the Future

Presented at ArabHealth in Dubai in late January, the newly opened Dr. Sulaiman Al-Habib Digital Hospital in the United Arab Emirates biggest city is fully equipped with the latest technology, making it a real hospital of the future.

It starts with the hospital’s app through which a patient can find the most suitable doctor and make an appointment online. In a second, the patient receives a confirmation SMS and, within 24 hours, a call to confirm, cancel or postpone the appointment.

Paperless Hospital

On the first visit, the hospital scans a patient’s ID and records his or her biometrics. Even the consent form is digitized. On subsequent visits, only a fingerprint scan is necessary for immediate access to the patient’s digital records. Another benefit of a paperless hospital is that patients can have access to their own medical records via their phone; doctors also can examine their patients’ records anytime, even from home, and prescribe medication as needed.

State-Of-The-Art Equipment

In partnership with GE Healthcare, the hospital is equipped with a state-of-the-art radiology department. For example, patients can choose and manage an enhanced audiovisual experience during their MRI or CT scans. Designed for adults and children alike, a range of 11 “themes” can be selected on an iPad before entering the examination room. During the scan, patients see images representing the chosen theme on a large ceiling-mounted screen, while ambient lighting and music help put them at ease. They can even choose music from their own media library.
