The Ministry of Health and Prevention has launched a one-of-its-kind ‘Health Mirror’ service.
It works by conducting a comprehensive body scanning using the ‘PRO MYBIODI’ smart device to get a patient’s health status and identify the biomarkers in about a minute.
The collected data can serve as a health guide and initial diagnosis before a patient is sent for laboratory and other medical tests.
The unveiling was made during the ministry’s participation at the Arab Health exhibition and conference.
Dr Youssif Al Serkal, Assistant Undersecretary for the Ministry of Health and Prevention — Hospitals Sector, said the Health Mirror service technology is being offered for the first time in the Middle East.
Dr Al Serkal said that the ministry has also partnered with Atellica Solutions Siemens to launch an innovative blood sample collection device. Also a first in the Middle East, the device is equipped with an exclusive feature that enables transfer of blood samples 10 times faster than conventional systems. It is flexible, has the ability to handle different work rates, and easily scalable to deal with more than 30 types of samples.
Dr Kulthum Mohammed Al Balushi, Director of the ministry’s Hospital Management, said: “This device allows multiple vision cameras and intelligent systems for sample distribution and quality check to achieve better regulation and control of all samples. The innovative system can be used as a separate solution as connected solutions up to 10 units built together up to 300 different design and that including straight designs or in the form of L or U, it can also be connected to a mechanism system which raises services for various laboratory sections.”
