Looking for doctor in Dubai? New app will help you find right one now

October 13, 2014

Dubai Health Authority, DHA, on Saturday announced that it will display several “breakthrough IT solutions” during GITEX 2014 ICT technology tradeshow, in line with the vision of transforming Dubai into a smart city.

Among those is, DHA said, “the first-of-its-kind pilot project in the region that involves the use of motion-sensing technology to transform physical therapy.”

The project will ensure physiotherapists can tailor-make home based exercises for patients that can be monitored by the system to ensure patients are exercising in the right manner.

DHA also introduced the Sehhaty (Arabic for my health) and the Doctors in Dubai app, and said both were developed internally.

‘Sehhaty’ has a plethora of features that allow users to view the details of appointments, check medical tests results and health card details.

Parents who use the app can view their children’s vaccination details and synchronise them with their calendar in order to receive alerts every time their child’s vaccination is due.

‘Doctors in Dubai’ enables users to search for a doctor or health facility in Dubai.

Inspired by Windows 8, the app is compatible with all platforms – Apple iOS, Google Android, Blackberry and Windows Mobile, among others.

In addition to using apps for the convenience of customers, DHA also developed smart inspections systems to further develop the manner in which the health sector in regulated.

At GITEX Technology Week 2014, which runs between 12-16 October at Dubai World Trade Centre, visitors to DHA’s stand will be able to learn about apps and their features and will be offered on-the-spot free screening for blood pressure and blood sugar.
