Sheikh Mohammed visited the Arab Health Exhibition and said, “The UAE and Dubai have prioritised creating one of the best healthcare sectors in the world; this is in line with our development vision, which is based on the health and happiness of people.” More than 3,000 exhibitors from more than 70 countries showed new and innovative healthcare technologies at the event. More than 300 regional and international speakers will be at Arab Health 2023. Keynote speeches, scientific lectures, and business briefings will be at the nine Continuous Medical Education (CME) conferences.
He also went to the Emirates Health Pavilion, which is run by the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MOHAP), the Dubai Health Authority (DHA), and Abu Dhabi’s Department of Health (DOH). The three groups are showing off projects they worked on together as part of a unique national effort to provide curative and digital health services that align with the country’s plan to set up a flexible and sustainable health system. The Emirates Health Pavilion, which is 1200 square metres, is the biggest pavilion Arab Health 2023 has ever had.
At the Siemens pavilion, the NAEOTOM Alpha with Quantum Technology, the world’s first CT scanner that counts photons, was shown to Sheikh Mohammed. The new diagnostic imaging system is an improvement on computed tomography. It uses photon-counting detectors to make detailed 3D images. The new solution can help hospitals, medical centres, and private clinics offer better quality care.
Sheikh Mohammed also saw a number of innovative healthcare technology systems that Philips was showing off. These included the company’s eICU programme, which is a critical care tele-ICU programme that combines audio-video technology, predictive analytics, data visualisation, and advanced reporting capabilities; its new MR 7700 system for high-quality MRI imaging; and a silent ICT scanner.
Sheikh Mohammed was also told about the Revolution Aspire computed tomography (CT) system, which is GE Healthcare’s next-generation CT system that will be released worldwide at Arab Health 2023. Officials from GE Healthcare said that the UAE was chosen for the global launch of the technology because it has a healthcare system focused on the future and a government that wants to give patients the best care possible. The event is part of GE Healthcare’s commitment to a more sustainable future and is in line with the UAE’s Year of Sustainability.
The second Future Health Summit will be held at the Museum of the Future as part of Arab Health 2023. The private, fully immersive event for C-suite executives in the healthcare industry will look at the future of health and healthcare in the Metaverse. At the event, world-famous business leaders, visionaries, metaverse experts, authors, and futurists will share their thoughts on the subject.
