Dr. Naser Ammash, CEO of SSMC, commented on the award, stating, “Our team of experts in various specialties deserves recognition for their efforts in utilizing data and advanced digital solutions to enhance patient experiences and outcomes. We are grateful to the Arab Hospitals Federation and HIMSS for this prestigious acknowledgment and remain dedicated to advancing healthcare delivery in our transformation journey.”

Recognizing SSMC’s Excellence

The accolade recognizes SSMC’s application of digital solutions across three categories. The first is the use of virtual reality, augmented reality and metaverse in health care, for which SSMC has earned a Platinum Star.

The second achievement, which earned SSMC a Gold Star, involves the utilization of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. SSMC emphasized their deployment of an AI tool called DaLi for detecting Acute Leukemia.

The third category of the award recognizes SMCC’s use of electronic health records (EHRs) to improve clinical outcomes and operational reliability, while reducing costs. SSMC submitted a case study on how it achieved complete digitalization when managing an Acute Kidney Injury, illustrating how EHRs allowed it to seamlessly manage the entire care pipeline. For this, SSMC was awarded the Silver Star.

Since its opening, Sheikh Shakhbout Medical City has cultivated a culture aimed at providing the most trusted and highest quality of care delivered by a multispecialty practice enhanced by medical education, research, and innovation in a state-of-art facility.

Moving ahead, SSMC will continue to leverage technology to maximize its capabilities when it comes to serving the needs of patients in Abu Dhabi and the region.
