Etisalat Digital, Mobile Doctors 24-7 sign deal to bring future medical care solutions to the region

Etisalat Digital, a business unit of Etisalat, and Mobile Doctors 24-7 (MD 24-7), a top health management provider, have partnered to bring future medical care solutions to the region. The memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed as part of Dubai Future Accelerators (DFA) programme. Etisalat Digital will provide digital enabling capabilities for Mobile Doctors 24-7’s services. The two companies will work together to develop chronic disease management solutions that will contribute to reducing chronic patients’ emergency room visits, reduce the average length of stay in hospital, and reduce unnecessary hospital readmissions.



This partnership has been initiated under the DFA programme, the world's largest government-supported accelerator, which brings together top start-up businesses with Dubai Government entities, allowing them to build, test and deploy world class solutions for 21st-century challenges. Mobile Doctors 24-7 was one of 35 companies selected from over 1000 applications from around the world in the second DFA cohort.



Raouf Khalil, founder and CEO of Mobile Doctors 24-7, said: "Our collaboration with Etisalat Digital will result in creative and innovative solutions using cutting-edge technologies to foster change in the healthcare system to align consumers and payers."



"People should have access to ethical and reliable healthcare round-the-clock. Our full-time doctors provide ethical medical advice to patients by telling them the truth about what they need, not just what they can afford. This is the only way to ensure a proper balance between quality and cost.



"Our solution to the many issues facing healthcare provision is to change consumer behaviour by providing them 24-7 access to a system that avoids unnecessary waste of healthcare resources." he added.



Francisco Salcedo, SVP Etisalat Digital, said: "We are pleased to partner with MD 24-7 that will help meet specific requirements of the healthcare sector. These creative and innovative solutions will use futuristic technologies to foster change in the ecosystem."
