DHA won the award in the ‘Best in Future of Operations’ category and was recognised as an entity that has successfully rethought the ways in which its operations are managed keeping digital transformation in mind.
International Data Corporation (IDC) hosted more than 200 senior IT and business leaders from across the UAE for the IDC DX Forum 2022, which took place at Dubai’s iconic Museum of the Future under the theme “Digital Leaders for the Digital Era.”
The event culminated in the 2022 edition of the IDC Future Enterprise Awards, which formally recognised the achievements of UAE-based organisations that have successfully planned and executed digital transformation (DX) initiatives across multiple areas of their businesses through the implementation of disruptive digital technologies.
DHA was recognised for its E-Connected Healthcare Model, which is an innovative operational model that combines digital systems and data originating from the public and private healthcare providers under one platform.
