Seha to partner with global paediatric experts
Abu Dhabi, December 24, 2013
The Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (Seha) met with representatives from global paediatric centres, as part of its new programme to recruit experts in the field to partner for reforms.
Four leading international children’s hospitals from the US including Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia in collaboration with Cleveland Clinic, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, Children’s National Medical Center and Johns Hopkins Hospital took part in the workshop.
During the process, a team from Seha senior management presented the delegations with what is expected of them on signing of the deal.
The overall aim of this programmed is to further improve and enhance the delivery of paediatric services within the Seha Health System, said the heathcare company in a statement.
It is part of a general strategy for Seha designed to promote the transition to a healthcare model which utilises service lines, which are organised arrays of clinical services focused on the health of specific populations, and they enable delivery of healthcare in an integrated and coordinated manner.
Service lines are expected to improve performance across Seha’s health facilities in six key areas – patient safety and quality, operational service excellence, strategy and growth, people, financial performance and research and education.
Through the initiative, the authority seeks to provide integrated healthcare to all of Abu Dhabi residents and to shift from external management of hospitals to clinical services designed specifically for the local population.
It will also aim to provide scientific and training opportunities for UAE nationals in paediatrics, with aims also to develop a new children’s hospital in the New Sheikh Khalifa Medical City project. - TradeArabia News Service
