Building the Future

We are bringing people with diverse perspectives such as clinicians, engineers, designers, software developers, business people, and patients come together in an intense, fun-filled, two-day event to develop and build solutions that could address challenges facing healthcare today and future innovations. Participants will form teams, collaborate, and focus on a specific problem or idea in healthcare to come up with innovative solutions.

We aim to increase the patients’ health and well-being while improving the efficiency of the use of potentially scarce resources among stakeholders of the ecosystem.

Healthcare is a sector of critical importance in UAE and the region, encompassing an array of areas including hospitals, medicines, medical devices, clinical trials, outsourcing, telemedicine, medical tourism, health insurance, and medical equipment. The sector holds enormous opportunity for public and private stakeholders to develop innovative solutions that democratize healthcare and increase affordability.
Since UAE’s innovative healthcare delivery initiatives must function across a wide spectrum of geographical, socio-economic, and cultural diversity, the initiatives by the government are adaptable and easy to replicate in UAE or any other country.
Healthcare systems are striving to improve quality and patient experience while also managing population health and lowering costs.
Today’s problems, though, are at a scale that requires new thinking and approaches to transform health care.
This transformation will require a focus on new ways of managing change that allows organizations to develop and adopt innovations and the ability to spread and scale them when they are proven successful.
