Al Jalila Children’s Offers Its Patients Telehealth Services

Al Jalila Children’s Speciality Hospital, the only hospital specialized in paediatric medicine in the United Arab Emirates, has recently launched its Telehealth service, an electronic platform that allows families of children in need of medical attention to communicate with doctors and consultants at Al Jalila Children’s through direct video chat technology from the ease of their homes and through their mobile phones.

Al Jalila Children’s Telehealth is a consumer-friendly electronic platform customized to give users a convenient, safe and secured access to premium patient care from anywhere in the world without the need to visit the hospital. A team of highly experienced doctors and consultants are available for families with children previously treated in the hospital that require follow-up appointments, in addition to new patients, and second-opinions.

Dr. Mohammed Al-Awadhi, COO of Al Jalila Children’s, said: “We were keen, when launching the Telehealth service, to provide an easy to use and accessible-to-all electronic service, and ensure that it offers the same level of premium healthcare provided by the hospital through actual visits. We are very pleased with the overwhelming response, as the electronic appointments exceeded about 75% of the total hospital appointments.”

Dr. Al-Awadi added: “Being a smart hospital, we had adopted the most advanced systems and technologies since we started our operations, and the Telemedicine service was one among the first technologies that we developed because we believe that this service is the future of modern medicine. However, this service gained much more importance in the wake of Covid-19 pandemic for being an essential tool that contributes to the safety of our young patients and their families.”

Al Jalila Children’s, the first and only paediatric hospital in UAE, caters for children and adolescents up to the age of 18 years. Inaugurated on November 1, 2016, Al Jalila Children’s is an ultramodern hospital with world-class teams of highly qualified healthcare experts that employs smart technology designed to enhance patient care and outcomes. The hospital also aims to foster clinical innovations, astute learning and development programmes, and hosts cutting-edge research facilities. It is a 200-bed facility in a child and family-friendly environment.
