Emirates Telecommunications Group “Etisalat” on Wednesday presented its vision for the future of delivering healthcare services at GITEX Technology Week 2018, with the aim of supporting the UAE’s national agenda to achieve a world-class healthcare system.
“We are at the forefront of the innovation in digital health. Etisalat’s solutions are aimed at creating a more efficient and reliable healthcare system and transforming the healthcare of tomorrow,” said Ahmed bin Ali, the company’s senior vice president for corporate communications
“Our solutions can sequence one’s whole genome and find out a patient’s future conditions, the likelihood of developing certain diseases, while bringing in solutions that train surgeons better before getting inside the operating theater through immersive reality. We, at Etisalat, envision creating telemedicine networks where caregivers can collaborate and patients can have easy access to the best care possible regardless where they live,” he added.
This week Etisalat unveils RoboPharmacy, a showcase of an unmanned, futuristic pharmacy system. It will be the first hands-on experience of Etisalat’s 5G technology believed to change people’s lives. It uses the 5G connection between the hospital, pharmacy, and capturing the data to provide convenience to the customer through virtual futuristic technologies.
Another revolutionary showcase is the CAE Vimedix ultrasound simulator, a high-fidelity simulator designed to make learning more engaging and intuitive. The unique system features a mannequin, several simulated ultrasound probes and an expanding library of cases.
SharpSurgeon, a VR spine surgery simulator and training, brings a new perspective to classical medical education methods. This solution allows resident doctors to train while conducting complex surgeries. It provides a repeatable and standard tutoring environment and an add-on to any government current training curriculum while offering highly realistic hand-based interactions in an immersive training environment that reflects the modern operating room, according to a company statement.
Etisalat is also allowing an opportunity to discover how augmented reality is revolutionizing medical education, and how 3D4Medical’s interactive anatomy learning platform ‘Complete Anatomy’ brings the human body to life in a stunning 3D, with incredible interactive functionality and learning content presented through augmented and mixed reality.
