Two Major UAE Healthcare Groups Mediclinic Middle East

About Malaffi: Malaffi - the Abu Dhabi Health Information Exchange

It is the zone's primary Health Exchange Information platform, operated by Abu Dhabi Health Data Services that allows a safer and secure connection between public and private healthcare service providers of Abu Dhabi. It delegates the process of exchanging patient information to the physicians, using a streamlined database of patient's records, diagnosis, routine check-ups, or radiology. With the help of AI technology and machine learning, it will accelerate the future of public health in Abu Dhabi by decreasing disease, improved healthier results, and prolonged public life.

The Malaffi process and affairs are operated by Abu Dhabi Health Data Services – which is authorized as a partnership between the public department of health and Injazat Data System, a subsidiary private investment company. It hosts various healthcare organizations on a single platform that will collectively work towards a safe health process for Abu Dhabi residents.

Recently ADHIE has announced on 7th July 2019 about the merge of two significant healthcare groups of UAEs who have signed the membership agreement:

  • Mediclinic Middle East
  • NMC Healthcare

What is the Mediclinic Middle East, and how it works?

Mediclinic International is listed under London Stock Exchange private healthcare company, which has operating subsidiaries in Switzerland, South Africa, and UAE. Mediclinic Middle East is a subsidiary of its International sub-division in UAE. The baseline works on scientific research, art treatments, and tools used to improve patients' health conditions. It has about seven hospitals, twenty clinics with above nine hundred beds in UAE.

What is NMC Healthcare, and how it works?

NMC is one of the potent healthcare chains headquartered in Abu Dhabi with regional offices in Dubai, Northern Emirates, Al Ain, and Ajman. It is one of the largest private healthcare centers in the UAE, providing health services such as diagnostics, radiology, eyecare, ortho care, heart care, urocare and retail pharmacy. They are one of the supreme wholesalers, dealing with pharmaceuticals products, equipment, food, and cosmetics items. Companies such as Nestle, Pfizer, Sanofi do have NMC healthcare as their Distributor

Now that we are familiar with their origin and how they regulate for the welfare of public health and safety. We shall proceed with the partnership, how it will contribute to the UAEs healthcare sector.
Malaffi has over two thousand private and public healthcare service providers who work for three million UAE population. Mediclinic Middle East and NMC Healthcare are now vital groups of participants at Malaffi. However, few new bodies have joined in last December with Malaffi to ensure excellent support and smooth functioning, including:

  • Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA)
  • Imperial College London Diabetes Centre
  • Cleveland Clinic
  • Health point
  • United East Medical Services
  • Oasis Hospital

The collective efforts of these organizations have led to the operating of two hospitals and three forty-two clinics in Abu Dhabi.

The collaboration of Mediclinic Middle East and NMC Healthcare with Malaffi is a significant milestone towards the dedicated aim of improving public prolonged health and patient’s recovery within the entire Abu Dhabi.

All these are feasible due to the convenience and high calibre of Healthcare Information Exchange Platform like Malaffi, which assist in cooperative patient data and making it accessible on a universal platform. Later, by the following year, Malaffi has planned to collect the health information from half of the Abu Dhabi patients in the hospital.

Let us see what the management and board of directors have to say about this delightful collaboration of two major UAEs health care groups with Malaffi.

Mr. Atif Al Braiki, the CEO of Abu Dhabi Health Data Service, has shared his view on the solid foundation of Malaffi that will help foster clinical adoption at a faster rate.

Mr. David Hadley, the Chief Executive Officer of Mediclinic Middle East, is glad to extend his support by joining hands with Malaffi. This health strategy will benefit the health care sector system by driving towards a safer process resulting in decreased errors, no copied test, and authentic medications to be supplied in the hospital.

"We are happy that one of the largest health participants of the Emirates is collaborating with Malaffi. We are looking forward to gaining the benefits of developing new policies and potent healthcare programs. The decision-making of doctors will also be wiser based on the patient's record. This information platform will help show the one-time treatment efficacy in patients of Emirates by reducing the number of check-ups at the hospital." – said by Mr. H.E. Mohammed Hamad AI Hameli under-secretary of the Department of Health.

Unlike Malaffi, NMC Healthcare is also the largest private company in the healthcare sector, an only Abu Dhabi headquartered company listed in London. NMC aims at leveraging technology in the health unit as Malaffi does. The structure strives to bring together all the health sector stakeholders on a universal platform to exchange information, knowledge, and experiences. Mr. Prasanth Manghat, the CEO and Executive Director of NMC Healthcare, also believed that such a firm partnership would help in enhancing the transparency of information, availability, and responsibility among the healthcare service providers and patients.
