Top 10 Healthcare Startups Transforming Remote Healthcare in UAE

Travel back in time—but not too far. Let’s go four decades back- to 1984. What options did people have for remote healthcare? Maybe a landline phone to call the doctor during an emergency. But was there a guarantee that it would be answered? 

Well, maybe sometimes, but only if the patient was important—say a politician, a business leader, or a movie star. Thankfully with the internet and smartphones, emergency or timely remote health care is turning into a reality. But there is still a lot of work to be done in this area. 

According to Studies, 1.9 million preventable deaths occur every year. A huge number is still unreported in low and middle-income countries. “

i-medicus Telehealth services are just a small step towards that big goal- “affordable remote health care for all”.  To add some much-needed boost to their mission, the i-medicus team attended the Arab Health Conference 2024.
