UAE’s ministry of health launches blockchain platform

The new project will help streamline search for health facilities and its licensed medical and technical personnel, and their expertise, using the MoHAP App

UAE’s Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) has launched the first advanced digital platform for data storage, official news agency WAM reported.

The project completed in collaboration with the Ministry of Presidential Affairs, Dubai Healthcare City and other relevant health authorities, will facilitate data storage pertinent to health, pharmaceutical government and private facilities, health practitioners, and drug information as well.

The blockchain-based platform aims to raise the efficiency of MoHAP and other health authorities’ smart health services.

The initiative is part of the Ministry’s plans for incorporating Artificial Intelligence (AI) into health services, in line with the UAE Artificial Intelligence Strategy, the statement said.

The new project will also help streamline the search for health facilities and its licensed medical and technical personnel, and their expertise, using the MoHAP app.

Additionally, the project would facilitate work effectiveness of health inspectors, and will encourage medical tourism by providing access to integrated information on health care in the country.

“The AI-based projects will play a key role in enhancing the capabilities of health care services and providing smart medical solutions, in accordance with the UAE Centennial 2071, and its artificial intelligence strategy,” said Dr. Amin Hussein Al Amiri, assistant undersecretary of the Ministry of Health and Prevention’s Public Health Policy and Licenses.

Dr. Lubna Al Shaali, director of Public Health Policy department, said, “This blockchain-based platform would help secure an unchangeable, decentralized and encrypted database with high-security protection to verify data validity and reliability.”
