Abu Dhabi: Abu Dhabi health authorities have approved 77 homecare providers in the emirate who can continue to care for more than 4,000 patients.

The approvals were announced Thursday by the sector regulator, the Department of Health (DoH), along with an updated model for home care services.

“The DoH is committed to updating and implementing advanced models of care that increase the efficiency of the sector and contribute to health services that meet the highest international standards. We continue to improve the health sector to ensure residents receive quality services that are readily available and ultimately enhance their experience. The emirate’s advanced care models will ensure residents continue to have access to services from certified, experienced and qualified specialists, ”said Dr. Jamal Kaabi, the Secretary of State of the DoH.

‘Enhancing the patient journey’

“The updated home care model, one of the most comprehensive models of its kind in the world, is testament to the DoH’s continued efforts to improve patient travel. Our primary goal is to further promote the health and well-being of the residents through patient-oriented and timely services. The home care services model adheres to global best practices, procedures and guidelines, with performance indicators continuously monitored to ensure patient safety, ”added Dr. Al Kaabi added.

The model provides clear guidelines for determining the eligibility of patients and clarifies the nature of the home care services provided. The patient’s suitability is assessed after the patient’s needs have been diagnosed and the type of therapeutic and nursing care required has been identified. The DoH also determines the appropriate care provider based on the needs of each patient’s health status.

“Improved patient satisfaction”

Healthcare providers expressed their appreciation for the DoH’s support and efforts to improve health services.

“The updated care model offers significant opportunities for developments that will improve the accessibility and quality of home care services while advancing the emirate’s health sector. While the primary goal of the updated model is to improve patient health, healthcare providers will also benefit from improved patient satisfaction, higher employee productivity and more, ”said Ali Mohsen Al-Naqib, Chief Executive Officer of Real Medical Center.

“The updated care model will ensure that home care in Abu Dhabi meets global standards of comprehensive health care provided by highly trained and qualified doctors,” said Abdulaziz Al Hosani, Chief Executive Officer of Tebabah Home Health Care.

“Holistic and patient-oriented care”

“This is a critical initiative that will modulate the health system context in non-acute care settings through the leadership and leadership of the DoH. The updated model prioritizes all phases of the patient journey, promoting the culture of holistic and patient-centered healthcare while encouraging patient and family engagement, ”said Ahmed Hadi Al Rashdi, Chairman of Manchester Home Health Care.
