The 2019 edition of e-Health Week is the ninth event hosted by HIMSS in Dubai and was held under the patronage of the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MOHAP), the Department of Health, the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) and the Emirates Health Informatics Society and supported by the Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA).

The focus of the conference sessions this year was on the latest developments in the digital transformation of the UAE healthcare systems and saw a number of senior government officials and healthcare experts discussing leadership, change management strategies, workforce development, clinicians ‘engagement and real-world case studies in the use of Artificial Intelligence and blockchain technologies.
 
A key highlight of the conference was the UAE CxO Forum were officials and industry experts delved into the Future of Healthcare IT.
Dr. Mohammed Al Redha, Director of the Executive O¬ffice For Organizational Transformation, Dubai Health Authority (DHA), said, “If we are going to continue leading in the age of digital transformation, we have to understand the landscape and keep ahead of trends.

Investing time, money and resources into healthcare technologies ensures that hospitals, clinics and healthcare providers in the region are able to build the proper infrastructure to support long-term digitalization. “The healthcare funding revolution has developed tremendously over the past 10 years, moving towards efficient cost utilization” said Saleh Al Hashimi, Director of Health Funding, DHA. “Technology and precision medicine will be crucial in the efficient use of resources, allowing us to move towards health prevention and detection instead of treatment” he continued. “Moreover, we will be able to use data and analytics from these technologies to plan better at the payer level”.
