Tech support at home for diabetics in Dubai

Aster Chronic Care @ Home initiative lets paramedics monitor a patient’s blood sugar & pressure remotely & real time

Many people suffering from diabetes and hypertension usually cheat their diets and medication. A new health service launched earlier hopes to enable patients and doctors to better manage the disease through close monitoring of blood glucose and blood pressure reading, constant data management through a mobile app connected to a call centre and patient outreach specialists. The programme was launched by Aster DM Healthcare.

The aptly named Chronic Care @ Home initiative was inaugurated by Amal Ali Al Mehrzi, Head of Performance Management Unit, Health Regulation Department at Dubai Health Authority (DHA) on behalf of Dr Layla Al Marzouqi, Director of Health Regulation at DHA; and Alisha Moopen, Executive Director and CEO, Hospitals and Clinics (GCC), Aster DM Healthcare.
