UAE-based RAK Hospital has introduced a new diabetes management tool designed to enhance patient care.

The tool has been launched in collaboration with THB, Asia’s leading Enterprise Healthcare software as a service company.

This initiative aims to enhance patient engagement and support holistic diabetes care through new technology and data analytics, according to a press release posted via Zawya.

RAK Hospital’s new tool uses data analytics to shift healthcare from reactive to proactive, improving patient outcomes while supporting clinical decision-making.

Patients will benefit from a personalised reminder system, wellness prompts, and scheduled healthcare interactions.

RAK Hospital executive director Dr Raza Siddiqui said: “In a first-of-its-kind initiative, RAK Hospital is integrating advanced technology and digital health platforms into patient care, pioneering a novel patient engagement model. This model establishes a continuous communication loop between patients, doctors, and the hospital, setting new standards for healthcare delivery in the region.

“With the UAE ranking 15th in the global diabetic index, approximately 19% of adults are classified as diabetic and an additional 15-20% are pre-diabetic. Therefore, the need for effective diabetes management initiatives is paramount.

“We take this cause very seriously and want to help pre-diabetics reverse the condition while supporting and providing 360° holistic care to diabetics to enhance their quality of life.”

One of the features of the tool is the introduction of dedicated health counsellors, providing individualised support and guidance.

Siddiqui added: “The initiative includes deploying digital health solutions for seamless patient-doctor-hospital communication, user-friendly applications for all ages, and tools for effective chronic condition management.”
