The UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP), in
partnership with the Ministry of Presidential Affairs and Dubai Healthcare City
among others, has launched the country’s first advanced digital platform for
data storage aimed at pharmaceutical companies, health practitioners,
government, and private facilities.
This digital platform, which is fundamentally powered
by blockchain, has been introduced to increase the efficiency of MoHAP and
other health authorities’ smart health services. The launch is part of the UAE Artificial
Intelligence Strategy, which plans to integrate AI into health services. The
new platform would help organise the search for health facilities, its licensed
medical and technical personnel, and their expertise via the MoHAP application.
Furthermore, the project would also enhance the
effectiveness of health inspectors and encourage medical tourism by providing
access to integrated information on healthcare in the country.
Last month, the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) introduced
its own Crypto Valley ecosystem in partnership with CV VC and CV Labs. The
DMCC Crypto Valley, which aims to foster growth, collaboration and integrity
across the global blockchain economy, is set to offer a wide range of services
that includes incubation for early-stage start-ups, co-working facilities,
innovation services for corporate clients, blockchain and entrepreneurship
training, education, events, mentoring and funding.
Additionally, in early January, Abu Dhabi was awarded the Guinness World Record for installing the world’s largest AR screen in London. The AR screen, which used the Piccadilly Lights digital billboard and ran across 5,904 square feet, captured images of people near the statue of Eros in the city’s Piccadilly Circus and placed them digitally by using 3D AR overlays, among some of Abu Dhabi’s most famous tourism landmarks.
