Al-Futtaim Health UAE takes home three trophies at the 2022 Healthcare Asia Awards
Technological advances and progressive leadership earned the company three major titles.
Al-Futtaim Health from the UAE was recognised at the 2022 Healthcare Asia Awards, bagging three trophies for this year’s awards programme: the ‘Primary Care Provider of the Year’, ‘Service Innovation of the Year’, and ‘CEO of the Year’.
The healthcare solutions provider spearheaded advances in the industry by integrating innovative technological solutions and professional medical services, whilst redefining their patients’ experience by delivering high quality, smart and integrated care.
The company’s success is credited to the leadership of its CEO, Dr Haidar Al Yousuf, Managing Director of Al-Futtaim Health. The doctor was awarded CEO of the Year for his instrumental role in restructuring the health financing model of the Emirate, and introducing cost-effective ways where patients, medical staff, insurance companies and insurance providers can benefit together.
“As a unique healthcare offering, Al-Futtaim Health has developed an ecosystem built on a unique business model of balance, where top quality service and the best treatment is made accessible to all,” the company said.
“This is in line with the brand’s central belief that everyone is entitled to good healthcare. It’s an ecosystem that effectively optimises resources and cost-efficiencies, to create a constant win-win platform,” the company added.
Through the leadership of Dr Haidar Al Yousuf, Al-Futtaim Health has successfully established HealthHub Clinics by Al-Futtaim, which received the GOLD seal recognition by Accreditation Canada for its safe and quality healthcare service in the Emirate.
Due to this recognition, HealthHub Clinics has earned its position amongst an elite group of organisations implementing Accreditation Canada’s Qmentum International program. This prestigious quality and safety standards acknowledgement has not only brought honour to the organisation but also reflected the professionalism and excellence of Al-Futtaim Health’s network of HealthHub Clinics.
Apart from the global quality recognition earned by the company, Al-Futtaim Health extended their efforts by introducing new technological means of providing healthcare assistance, which made processes more efficient, thereby improving the overall service and customer experience of its patients.
“If you suffer from allergies, headaches, stomach aches, flu-like symptoms, chronic conditions and mental health or need a prescription refill, the HealthHub specialists will always be there to help you via Telehealth Consultation,” the company said.
“You can also connect to your doctor instantly by using SmartDoc. A patient can connect in real-time to a physician for a full diagnosis. After a quick teleconsultation, the medicines are delivered directly to their homes,” they added.
Another technological breakthrough introduced by the company was TytoCare. It is an advanced handheld exam kit from HealthHub Clinics that lets its users perform guided medical exams via teleconsultation with a doctor from Al-Futtaim Health.
These services showed the level of impact that Al-Futtaim Health had in contributing to the improvement of the healthcare industry in the region. Their prestigious role in the industry along with the introduction of their technological advancements, have earned them the ‘Primary Care Provider of the Year’, and ‘Service Innovation of the Year’ trophies for this year’s Healthcare Asia Awards.
