“Consistent with our unwavering drive for excellence, we continue to transform the sector by bringing together the globe’s leading healthcare expertise, talent and institutions and opening new avenues for innovation to flourish,” he said further.
“Our goal is to create a vibrant global healthcare hub that serves not only the needs of the people of our nation but also caters to the growing requirements of our vast region. Aligned with our goal of making the UAE one of the world’s best places to live and work, we are on a constantly evolving journey to raise standards of human development and welfare,” Sheikh Mohammed concluded.
More than 3,000 exhibitors from over 70 countries are showcasing innovative new healthcare technologies at the event.
Arab Heath 2023 will see over 300 regional and international speakers and nine Continuous Medical Education (CME) conferences featuring keynote speeches, scientific lectures, and industry briefings.
Following the inauguration, Sheikh Mohammed toured the event and visited the stands of various leading companies including GE Healthcare, Cleveland Clinic, Healthcare Spain, Siemens and Philips.
Sheikh Mohammed also visited the Emirates Health pavilion, under whose umbrella, the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MOHAP), Dubai Health Authority (DHA) and Abu Dhabi’s Department of Health (DOH) are participating in the event.
The three bodies are showcasing jointly-developed projects as part of a unique national initiative to provide curative and digital health services aligned with the country’s strategy to establish a sustainable, flexible preventive health system.
The 1,200 sq. m Emirates Health pavilion is the largest ever pavilion in the history of Arab Heath 2023.
At the Siemens pavilion, Sheikh Mohammed was introduced to the world’s first photon-counting CT scanner, the NAEOTOM Alpha with Quantum Technology.
A reinvention of computed tomography, the new diagnostic imaging system utilises photon-counting detectors to deliver detailed three-dimensional (3D) images.
The new solution is capable of delivering higher quality care for hospitals, medical centres and private clinics.
Sheikh Mohammed also viewed several innovative healthcare technology systems being showcased by Philips including its eICU programme, a transformational 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 briefed about GE Healthcare’s next generation computed tomography (CT) system called Revolution Aspire, which is set to be launched globally at Arab Health 2023.
The UAE was chosen as the venue for the global launch of the technology due to its future-focused healthcare system and the vision of its leadership to provide the most advanced patient care possible, GE Healthcare officials said.
GE Healthcare’s participation in the event is aligned with the UAE’s Year of Sustainability and the organisation’s commitment to a more sustainable future.
