“It embodies the vision and aspirations of our wise leadership and helps us to achieve our goals to enhance the sustainability of the future healthcare sector,” he said. “This, in turn, empowers the industry to make greater contributions towards achieving the National Strategy for Wellbeing 2031, the ‘We the UAE 2031’ national vision, and ultimately, the “UAE Centennial 2071” Plan, which envisions a sustainable healthcare sector,” he added.
Healthy lifestyles
Dr Kulthum Al Balushi, Chief Innovation Officer, Director of Training and Development Centre at EHS, noted: “The strategy aims to promote healthy lifestyles and quality of life within the various segments of the community, by developing public, preventative, and mental health programmes, in addition to launching comprehensive and integrated health and treatment services that are in line with best medical and digital health practices. 
“It also strives to promote innovation practices that are rooted in flexibility, proactivity, and readiness, in addition to building and managing strategic partnerships, developing capabilities, raising the quality of services, and achieving financial efficiency and global competitiveness, in line with national strategies and projects for the health sector.”
The strategy aims to enhance the sustainability of health-related innovations by investing in health systems and building up economic resilience. Another goal is to develop the health economy by advancing healthcare services and programmes, and increasing the return on investment through innovative solutions. Furthermore, it is essential to establish an innovation-friendly corporate environment, strengthen internal capabilities, and streamline innovation practices.
