Malaffi will house different types of patient medical information, collated from different Abu Dhabi healthcare providers, including allergies, diagnoses, medications, laboratory and radiology reports, clinical notes, and other. Laboratory test results inform the majority of medical decisions and are among the main types of information centralised in Malaffi. Access to the longitudinal records of patients’ laboratory results, collated from the different on-site and referral laboratories, presents vital information for physicians and will undoubtedly enhance reliable and timely diagnosis for patients in Abu Dhabi.
Mohamed Al Hameli, Undersecretary of Department of Health, commented: “At the Department of Health, we strive to remain a leader in patient experience and to continue enhancing healthcare quality standards while ensuring the sector’s long-term sustainability. We are proud to welcome
VPS Healthcare Group and the first two network of clinical laboratories to the Malaffi network. We are confident that the system will be a central platform for facilitating information exchange among health facilities in the Emirate, and will continue elevating the quality and efficiency of healthcare delivery in the Emirate.”
“We are glad to welcome the new Malaffi participants – VPS Healthcare, National Reference Laboratory and MENALabs to the Malaffi network. The participation of these providers will increase the value of information available to healthcare professionals through Malaffi, affording improved patient outcomes,” said Atif Al Braiki, the Chief Executive Officer of Abu Dhabi Health Data Services, the operator of Malaffi.
