Abu Dhabi: The Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) has partnered with Department of Health Abu Dhabi (DoH), Emirates Health Services (EHS), and Dubai Health Authority (DHA) to launch national unified medical record platform named “Riayati”.
The cross-department association is considered as an important landmark for the “Riayati” as it will be integrated with EHS’ Electronic Medical Record, “Wareed” in Dubai and Northern Emirates and DHA’s health information network “Nabidh”.
The move is expected to boost the strategic significance of MoHAP’s national unified medical record in integrating digital health in the UAE’s health sector, where EHS, DHA, and medical service providers in the private sector have played a pivotal role in this process.
Mr. Al Owais remarked that the second phase of the project will see MoHAP associating with the Department of Health Abu Dhabi (DOH Abu Dhabi). MoHAP has already coordinated with the DOH Abu Dhabi to exchange data and information between “Riayati” and the “Malaffi” platform.
“Malaffi” is MENA’s first health information exchange platform, and one of the world’s fastest-growing healthcare exchange information systems. All Abu Dhabi-based Hospitals have been connected to the platform in less than three years.
“Riayati” is an advanced system for documenting health, personal and administrative information and data for each person receiving health services in his record.
When available, users of the e-portal of the unified health record would be able to view their records as well as identity various entities and individuals who can view their medical records.
Earlier in November, the Ministry had mandated all licensed health facilities to be included in the unified health record system within a year of the notification as per the controls and requirements set by the ministry.
