Malaffi, the region’s first Health Information Exchange (HIE) platform, a key strategic initiative of the Department of Health – Abu Dhabi (DOH), has achieved a major milestone by connecting 1 billion unique clinical records from 7 million unique patient records in Abu Dhabi, in just three and half years.

Known as one of the fastest rollouts of a Health Information Exchange (HIE) in the world, Malaffi enables the secure access and exchange of important health information in real-time to enhance quality healthcare and patient outcomes in Abu Dhabi. By providing a centralised repository of clinical data and providing advanced patient and population-level health insights, Malaffi plays a critical role in the digital transformation of the healthcare sector in Abu Dhabi.
Commenting on the 1 billion records milestone, Robert Denson, Acting CEO Malaffi said: “The Abu Dhabi government set ambitious plans to position itself at the forefront of digital transformation and quickly recognised the importance of connecting healthcare and the early integration of disruptive technologies such as AI and IoT.
