du Introduces M-Health Platform – CarePassport – To Empower Patients With Control Over Their Medical Records At GITEX 2017

 In line with its ’10 Times More’ theme at GITEX Technology Week 2017, du has introduced a revolutionary M-Health platform, CarePassport, which empowers patients to have control over their medical records by allowing them to aggregate, store, share, and manage all their medical data, including radiology images, lab results, dental, vitals, medications, and more. du hosted a roundtable with key stakeholders to discuss the challenges and opportunities in adopting new technologies such as CarePassport into legacy healthcare systems.

During the roundtable, the esteemed panel discussed how a holistic e-health platform that transgresses healthcare verticals, hospitals and geographical boundaries would provide, not only holistic patient information for healthcare providers, but would empower the patients themselves.

Speaking about this revolutionary new technology, Saleem Al Blooshi, Executive Vice President, Network Development and Operations, said: “As a telecommunications and digital service provider, we have the capabilities to ensure the infrastructure across three layers that addresses the key concerns of cyber security, confidentiality and trust, to provide a comprehensive solution that will empower healthcare providers with the confidence that their patients’ data is never compromised.”
