The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) aims to provide the best possible healthcare services for its citizens and residents. The DHA created an online platform named NABIDH, which connects public and private healthcare facilities in Dubai to securely exchange trusted health information.

Through NABIDH, all healthcare providers in the region can exchange patient data without any physical records being transferred between facilities, saving time and reducing risks of clinical errors.

The ultimate goal is for all medical organizations in Dubai to be connected on one platform so patients can access their complete health information with ease from any point of care location.

The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) has launched this initiative to create unified medical records for public and private hospitals in the Emirate of Dubai and improve patient safety.

The Dubai Health Authority’s NABIDH initiative leverages the power of information technology to provide sustainable change. Patients will have better outcomes and doctors themselves experience an improvement in quality of life through increased efficiency and lower levels of stress with evidence-based treatment possible.
