Following an agreement reached between the Dubai-based Al Tadawi Healthcare Group and Sheba Medical Center, Al Tadawi Medical Center has launched a diabetes clinic offering preliminary diagnostic consultations through face-to-face meetings with visiting doctors from Sheba Medical Center, which will be followed by daily remote monitoring through telemedicine technology. This marks the first time an Israeli medical institution is able to provide medical services in Dubai.
Sheba Medical Center is regarded as one of the pioneers in implementing telemedicine technology, especially through its innovation hub, Sheba ARC Center. Sheba and Al Tadawi plan to gradually expand the scope of the medical services that they offer and integrate a range of advanced healthcare services.
Yoel Hareven, Director of the International Division & Resource Development at Sheba Medical Center, had this to say about the collaboration agreement: “Sheba Medical Center, the largest hospital in Israel, ranked by Newsweek magazine as one of the Top 10 Best Hospitals in the World, has forged a partnership, which we believe will serve as a model for cooperation between Israeli medical professionals and their counterparts in the UAE and GCC region.”
For his part, Marwan Ibrahim Nasser, Chairman and Managing Director of the Al Tadawi Healthcare Group, added: “The agreement sets an example for constructive partnerships in the medical sector. By using the outsourcing model for medical solutions and leveraging Dubai’s advanced infrastructure for remote services, we seek to contribute to Dubai Health Authority’s efforts to further develop the emirate’s healthcare facilities.”
