Dubai, UAE -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/19/2014 -- Residents and visitors in Dubai can now easily find a medical specialist or a facility near them by using an app, and also ‘like’ or ‘dislike’ them after using their service.

The ‘Dubai Doctors’ app is one of the new smart healthcare initiatives of the Dubai Health Authority (DHA), which will be unveiled at Gitex Technology Week 2014.

Amani Al Jassmi, Director of Information Technology at the DHA, said: “The Dubai Doctors app will benefit both residents and visitors interested in information about health facilities/professionals available in Dubai.”

She said users can search for a doctor, a health facility and have complete access to information about all public and private hospitals in Dubai, DHA primary health centres and DHA medical fitness centres. “For example, a user searching for a dentist around his/her residence, will get a detailed list of professionals/facilities either as a list or map view, as per the user’s preference.

“The user can also like or unlike the doctor/facility after seeking their service and this feature has been built in to rope in community feedback of health services in Dubai.” She added the app will be available on multiple platforms including iOS, Android, Windows and Blackberry. In addition to this app, the DHA will also launch a patient-centric app, known as Sehhaty, at Gitex.
