Abu Dhabi:The (DHA) has launched an all-in-one smart app that will integrate many of their existing applications to create a seamless patient-hospital interface.
The app is available for free download on Google Play, Apple Store and other Android platforms and ultimately seeks to integrate all smart services in various sectors and create one single app for Dubai,reports Gulf News.
On the launch of DHA app, Dr Amani Al Jasmi,director of IT at DHA said, ''By the introduction of the single integrated DHA app we are making our health services more patient centric and moving towards complete integration. Eventually all apps will be integrated as sub-services in this single app."
Humaid Al Qutami, director general of DHA, said that in line with the vision of the Dubai Strategic Plan 2016-2021, ''DHA is keen to foster the development of smart services across all its entities with an aim to enhance efficiencies, further improve the health management system and to provide patients with convenience and patient-centered care.''
DHA also announced that it will set up five AI-assisted health pods for free health screening in five places across Dubai. 
These Artificial Intelligence-enabled pods can scan the user's body within seconds and provide a detailed analysis of his vitals, such as BMI, blood sugar, blood pressure, weight, body fat composition and other parameters. 
This scanner is completely different from the ones available at gyms and other places since they just scan certain body parts, but the AI pod will provide a full body scan and a health score too.(UNI)
