NABIDH Initiative

How does NABIDH help patients?


While returning from work, Omar is in a car accident. An ambulance brings an unconscious Omar to Clinic A.

Emirates ID helps identify Omar — easy access to health information during a medical emergency.


Omar being a new patient at Clinic A, the ER doctor uses emergency access to view Omar’s full medical history on NABIDH.

360° view of Omar’s medical history and current medications.


The ER doctor diagnoses Omar with a left ankle fracture and schedules an orthopaedic surgery. The physician also notices that Omar had a surgery 2 years back.

NABIDH has all the information from various facilities unified under one record and updated near real-time. The report from this ER is also updated automatically onto NABIDH.


Post-surgery, the discharge summary, medications and the lab results are all available on the NABIDH Clinical.

Physicians can make a more accurate diagnosis as the complete health record is available on NABIDH.


During the post-discharge appointment, Omar complains of blurry vision. The doctor notices the lens of Omar’s eye looks cloudy and refers him to an Ophthalmologist at Clinic C.

The doctor’s referral notes in NABIDH are easily accessible.


The Ophthalmologist conducts a full eye exam and retrieves the lab test results on NABIDH from Omar’s recent treatment at Clinic A. She recommends Omar for cataract surgery to replace the cloudy lens with a clear artificial one.
