Implemented in partnership with the National Ambulance and the Federal Authority for Identity & Citizenship, the newly developed project showcased the new smart ambulance that will be electronically connected to emergency departments in hospitals, besides another virtual emergency room with an alarm feature. The virtual room will be equipped with all future smart means to facilitate the referral of patients and the provision of medical information, by automating all operations related to locating the patient.

The development of the ambulance and emergency system nationwide is part of MoHAP’s strategy to provide comprehensive and innovative healthcare services as per the international standards, develop health information systems, and attract future therapeutic protocols, to use digital and medical technology innovations. This is in line with the UAE Centennial 2071, aiming to make the UAE one of the world’s best countries in health care,” said H.E.

“The smart connectivity project between the national ambulance services and hospital services would help reach the patient in record time by using the Internet of Things, in addition to the full readiness of the emergency room in accordance with the condition being treated. The smart ambulances will be equipped with a precise database, that will be provided in cooperation with the Federal Authority for Identity & Citizenship. The database will be featuring the patient’s profile to minimize the time needed to access patients’ information efficiently and effectively,” Al Serkal explained.


Smart Ambulances


Dr. Kalthoum Al Baloushi, Director of MoHAP’s Hospitals Administration, said: “The traditional ambulances will be upgraded to a smart one, where the caller who requests the service can locate the nearest ambulance through GPS system and select the best route to reach the hospital. Additionally, the ambulances will be equipped with a traffic signal alarm through the IoT system to turn the signal into the green color once the ambulance is approaching.”


She added: “The ambulances will be having access to patient’s records through the EMR system to update patients’ information, as well as internet access to contact the medical team. The patient-related smart tools and apps including a smart ECG, telemedicine services, will be also available with the aim of providing the proper treatment protocol in a timely manner and prior to reaching the hospital.”

We look forward through this cooperation with our strategic partner (the Ministry of Health and Prevention) to build a future based on service integration and the utilization of modern technologies including the artificial intelligence. Adopting future technologies will not only raise the efficiency of the work system and promote ambulance services but will also save more lives. '
