Dubai, UAE - April 20, 2017:  Mobile Doctors 24-7, a state-of-the-art population health management control center available 24-7 at the click of a button, has announced a unique digital healthcare solution that combines teleconsultation, telemonitoring and home health to provide healthy, acute and chronic condition management for the UAE residents.

The service was introduced in the presence of HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, at the recently concluded the Dubai Future Accelerators (DFA) program in Dubai.    

Mobile Doctors 24-7's family medicine specialists and general practitioners, licensed by the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) and Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC), as well as wellness experts provide advice via voice or video calls, live chat, on-site corporate health and wellness as well as Johns Hopkins Hospital at Home Program at any time of the day or night. 

Commenting on the initiative, Mr. Raouf Khalil, Founder and CEO of Mobile Doctors 24-7, said, “We are honored to have the opportunity to present this innovative project at the DFA program. At Mobile Doctors 24-7, we believe the only path to a true healthcare solution is by aligning consumers/employees and payers/employers. The innovative service uses futuristic, cutting-edge technologies to foster change in the healthcare ecosystem.”

“Residents should have access to ethical and reliable healthcare round-the-clock. Our full-time doctors provide ethical medical advice to patients by telling them the truth about what they need, not just what they can afford. This is the only way to ensure a proper balance between quality and cost. Our solution to health care is changing consumer behavior by providing them 24-7 access to an integrated delivery system that avoids unnecessary wastage of healthcare resources. Our aim to launch this initiative is to provide a real healthcare solution that works for both customers and payers,” he added. 

Mr. Abdulla bin Touq, CEO of the Dubai Future Foundation, said, “These aren't just challenges for Dubai, but for the whole world. The fate of our future is reliant on partnerships with innovative governments and new technologies. The history of our city and our people has been one of discovery and vision since our inception 45 years ago. Dubai is a platform for innovation, a place for the best minds to come together with forward-thinking leadership to forge a better future for us all.'

The Mobile Doctors 24-7 service allows everyone – whether at home, work, on a business trip, or on vacation – to have immediate access to a licensed, western-trained doctor or wellness expert at any time, 365 days a year without the need to make an appointment or wait in an emergency room queue. The Western-trained doctors practice evidence-based medicine adhering to the guidelines of Britain's National Health Service (NHS) / National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). Services of Mobile Doctors 24-7 are provided at a cost that is a fraction of a traditional clinic or hospital visit, making them highly cost effective for patients, employers, payers and governments.

The DFA program, with its second cycle taken place recently, was the world's largest government-supported accelerator, which paired top startups with the Dubai Government entities allowing them to build, test and deploy solutions for 21st-century challenges. The second cycle of the DFA witnessed participation of government entities that set a series of challenges, as well as startups and companies that can provide innovative solutions. Thirty-five companies were selected from over 1000+ applications from around the world.
