Etisalat Digital, a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi-based leading telecom group Etisalat, has launched its cloud-based electronic medical record, a solution that helps healthcare providers in the UAE to share data in real-time. 

Launched in line with the UAE Vision 2021, the solution will meet the government’s mandate for a centralized medical record for every citizen and resident in the country. With the solution, Etisalat Digital aims to connect more than 3,000 UAE-based public and private healthcare providers in the near future.

Ensuring world-class healthcare is one of the six pillars of the National Agenda which was formed in line with UAE Vision 2021. The UAE government is working in collaboration with all health authorities in the country to have both the public and private hospitals accredited according to national and international quality standards of medical services and staff.

The cloud-based electronic medical record (EMR) platform addresses some of the pertinent challenges that private independent healthcare practices may face in adopting an electronic patient record system. Etisalat’s SD-WAN solution connects all the authorized clinics and pharmacies in the region to a secure and central database.

Recently, the telecom company also launched ‘CloudTalk Meeting’ a comprehensive suite of collaboration solutions for enterprises in the UAE, offering more value to customers that want to connect and work in real-time. Etisalat promotes business continuity and remote working by enabling companies to select their preferred solution depending on their needs and overall business objectives.
