Fully AI-based

The system monitors, analyzes and evaluates the quality of health services and implements a system of preventive prevention of diseases and their complications.

Saleh Al Hashimi, CEO of Dubai Health Insurance Corporation at the Authority, stated that the EJADA Ai system is completely based on artificial intelligence and has managed to identify diabetic patients most prone to complications and risks of the disease, as well as the people closest to developing diabetes. .

Al Hashimi said that expenses for the treatment of diabetes patients under health insurance in Dubai exceeded Dh2 billion. However, the implementation of proactive preventive measures allows the authority to reduce financial pressure by 25 to 30 percent, which impacts both the treatment of diabetic patients and the expected burden on people at risk.

He explained that the EJADA Ai system integrates processes and procedures from monitoring to the analysis of critical data of chronic diseases such as diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma and others.

This facilitates the identification of people at risk, the diagnosis of possible complications and proactive measures to avoid complications and risks through advanced specialized medical programs implemented by the Department of Public Health Protection of the DHA.

Al Hashimi added: “The measures taken by the authority for preventive healthcare are implemented transparently and precisely between health insurance experts, the DHA Public Health Protection Department and in close collaboration with insurance companies and health care centers.

Transition from volume-based model to value-based model

This is in addition to the two companies, Merck Gulf and AstraZeneca Gulf, which are partners of the authority in implementing the initiative to improve early detection, prediction and management of chronic diseases. He also emphasized that all these joint efforts serve the interests and objectives of the preventive healthcare system and health security in Dubai.

Al Hashimi explained that the concept of the EJADA system is based on a transition from a volume-based model to a value-based model.

The system evaluates healthcare facilities, doctors and insurance companies based on data collected by the Dubai Health Authority, as well as feedback from patients and stakeholders (insurance companies) and service providers (facilities). doctors). Then, the authority carries out the necessary improvement processes and performance indicators of the clinical production of health services.

“The value and importance of the EJADA Ai system lies in the accurate processing of electronic claims data, which provides a comprehensive view of community health. When analyzed using artificial intelligence, this data enables early detection of chronic diseases, paving the way for timely interventions, improving patient outcomes and reducing the cost of disease management,” he added.
