The Dubai Academic Health Corporation has agreed on four bases as a part of its strategic plans and future goals.
The bases include Care: to set the global standard for evidence-based patient care and outcomes; Learning: to deliver transformative education and a future-ready workforce.
The other two bases cover Discovery: to create an ecosystem of innovation and discovery; and Giving and Stewardship: to achieve empathetic efficiency, optimization of resources and sustainability.
All these plans were discussed in the fourth Board of Directors meeting of the Dubai Academic Health Corporation.
The meeting was held at Al Jalila Foundation, and chaired by Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum with Vice Chairman Sheikh Mansoor bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum also present.
The priorities, underpinned by a number of agreed goals and enablers, will help realize the Corporation’s vision of ‘Together We Advance Health for Humanity.’
Sheikh Ahmed said that all the priorities approved in the meeting will drive the integration of care, learning and discovery, enabling the Corporation to set the global standard for patient care and outcomes.
During the meeting, a series of strategic programs were also approved to drive the changes necessary to fulfil the Corporation’s mission of ‘impacting lives and shaping the future of health through the integration of care, learning and discovery.’
These include reimagining the patient journey across the continuum of care, establishing initiatives to attract, develop and retain healthcare professionals, scientists, and clinical educators as well as enhancing the discovery infrastructure.
The creation of an ecosystem of innovation and discovery is fundamental to realizing this ambition and effective public and private partnerships will be developed to accelerate the advancement of health,” Sheikh Mansoor said.
Informed by international indicators and driven by the Corporation’s primary value ‘Patients First,’ SMART measures were put into place to monitor progress against the achievement of the strategic goals.
The SMART measures include the patient safety index, patient trust, workforce culture and capacity, availability of subspecialty care and endowment value to name a few.
