Dr Marwan Al Mulla, CEO of the Health Regulation Sector said, “Benchmarking and measuring the quality of care is fundamental to help build a robust health system where patient-centric care and patient safety is the cornerstone. We are working closely with the private sector to design a system with uses health data intelligently to help enhance health service delivery.”
 
Following the implementation of this system, DHA will be able to: 
  • Improve quality across the health system in Dubai.
  • Provide consumers with information to help empower them to make better choices about healthcare providers.
  • Provide medical tourists with trustworthy, independently validated information about Dubai’s healthcare quality. 
  • Develop a long-term reimbursement strategy, which is based on evidence of the quality of care provided.
Dr Mohammed Al Redha, Director of Project Management Office, Informatics and Smart Health Department at the DHA said, “The methodology will be data-driven and grounded in sound principles of data consistency, relevance, accuracy and integrity in order to drive crucial decision-making and strengthen the health sector in Dubai.”

The DHA will also engage with major private hospitals, day care surgery centres, selected polyclinics, Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC) and Ministry of Health & Prevention (MoHAP) facilities in Dubai and support them to help provide data.
