Dubai, UAE, 16 October 2018:   du, from Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Company (EITC) and Olea, a specialized advisory and business incubation platform, are showcasing at GITEX Technology Week 2018, a unique eHealth solution delivered via ‘The Consult Station'.

The Consult Station by H4D (Health for Development) is a medical connected booth that allows a patient to consult a physician remotely under the same conditions as a traditional face-to-face consultation. The diversity of measurement instruments on hand in the booth such as a blood pressure meter, oximeter, stethoscope, thermometer and otoscope amongst others and the dialogue taking place via videoconference makes it possible for the physician to provide a reliable and risk-free diagnostic consultation remotely.

In line with the UAE's Vision 2021 to develop world-class healthcare, and du's eHealth mission to provide access to value-based healthcare anytime and anywhere, du has partnered with Olea to explore the rollout of H4D telehealth booths across the UAE. The state-of-the-art Consult Station is a patented and certified Medical Device, combining professional measurement instruments, screens and a communication system. The Consult Station can be used in two modes: a consultation from a remotely located physician or a self-performed health check.

Jihad Tayara, Vice President Business Development and Partnerships- New Business & Innovation, du, said: “du recognizes the importance of building an integrated healthcare system through facilitating the adoption of innovative technologies. As the population is increasingly becoming tech-savvy and the young demographic is taking ownership of their health, the government has implemented a more proactive approach towards the country's well-being. du, in partnership with Olea, aims to support the UAE's healthcare agenda by developing advanced eHealth solutions.”

By accessing H4D's FDA approved Consult Station, users of the booth will be able to receive professional care services, according to their individual needs. A network of the telehealth booths across the UAE will increase resident access to physicians, while enabling the effective monitoring and management of chronic diseases.

Marc Choufani, Founder, Olea, said: “We are excited to partner with du to leverage their connectivity infrastructure and unified communications capabilities as we explore the rollout of such an innovative technology that will be of tremendous benefit to the healthcare community. In addition to revolutionizing the ecosystem of an integrated healthcare environment, H4D's telehealth booth on display at GITEX 2018 creates a benchmark for a futuristic urban society.”

Beyond providing quick, simple and confidential medical access through the Consult Station, this collaboration aims to play a key role in supporting the communities where the booths are located by further promoting prevention and wellness. Corporates on a mission to improve employee health will find a great benefit from deploying the Consult Station. The Consult Station can be deployed across the private and public sector, and can also be deployed into existing healthcare provider networks to improve access to care.
