The opening of the Intelligent Health Pavilion

Arab Health 2023 launches the Intelligent Health Pavilion

DUBAI, February 1, 2023

Arab Health 2023 has launched the Intelligent Health Pavilion, which showcases how multiple technologies can seamlessly inter-operate with medical equipment and co-exist to improve the patient experience. 
The pavilion has been created in partnership with Intelligent Health Association (IHA), allowing visitors to experience live use cases of the latest advances in sustainable healthcare technology across the care continuum.
Running until February 2, 2023 at the Dubai World Trade Centre, the Intelligent Health Pavilion allows visitors to immerse themselves in live demonstrations, including a groundbreaking digital Intensive Care Unit, an intelligent Operating Room, and a revolutionary Emergency Room enabling visitors to experience each step in a person's health journey from a patient, caregiver, or provider. 
Tech integration
Paul H Frisch, Attending, Department of Medical Physics; Chief, Biomedical Physics & Engineering, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Centre, said: “Today, the healthcare environment is not really about isolated technologies. In fact, today's hospitals use many devices - such as RFID and tablets - that are not medical devices. The focus now is on how these technologies are integrated and how the information is shared, directly impacting how hospitals operate. 
“At the Intelligent Health Pavilion operators and clinicians can see how the technologies function in a real environment, providing new metrics that many hospitals don't have access to and showing how the pieces integrate. From a business perspective, with interoperability, hospitals can monitor workflow and make optimisations and process improvements in medical care and delivery and their operational flow and management.
Harry P Pappas, Founder and CEO, Intelligent Health Association, said: “We developed the concept of the Intelligent Health Pavilion to educate the healthcare community on how they can adopt these technologies to improve patient care, patient safety, and the overall patient experience. Not only does the pavilion demonstrate the continuum of care, but it highlights the benefits of a seamless data environment. 
Wearable devices
“Today, wearable devices such as smartphones and smartwatches can capture data from patients and share that seamlessly with their circle of care – the family, the physician, the insurance company.”
A host of new technologies are on display at the Intelligent Health Pavilion, including wearable finger sensors that monitor vital signs in the ICU without the need for invasive lines, catheters, or arm cuffs, advanced digital stethoscopes where clinicians can listen to auscultation sounds through wired or wireless earphones with better amplification of heart and respiratory sounds, dual noise cancellation technology and sound recording.
